The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce held a grand opening and ribbon cutting on Monday, for Emma Jane’s at 106 Commerce Street in downtown Hinesville.

Chamber/CVB CEO Leah Poole, welcomed those in attendance and introduced Kathy Villafane, chamber incoming board chair, who welcomed the new business to the chamber. Hinesville Downtown Development Authority Executive Director Michelle Ricketson welcomed Emma Jane’s to downtown Hinesville. 

“I started Emma Jane’s in the dining room of our house. I was teaching full time and wanted a hobby that I could enjoy in my downtime. Opening a boutique has been a dream of mine for many years and if it were not for my family and friends encouraging me, I may have never taken that leap.  I have been overwhelmed with the support from everyone, including the community. I love being in downtown Hinesville, and I am very glad I chose this to be the forever home of Emma Jane’s,” said Staci Stevens Chapman, owner of Emma Jane’s.

Emma Jane’s carries women’s boutique clothing from sizes small to 3x, T-shirts, accessories, jewelry, gifts and personalized items. For more information, visit
