I grew up in a family-owned business in our small town. My grandparents owned and operated a hardware store and lumber yard, and my entire family worked there! My grandparents’ home was attached to the store, so I grew up in that store six days a week and visited on Sunday. My cousins and I “played store” until we were big enough to wait on customers and were put to work! Most kids had after school play time; we went to work! That feeling of family and the close ties we all had to the community, has always been my driving force to having my own business. We knew our customers by name, and most felt like family!
As a young mother I taught myself how to sew and started embellishing outfits for my daughter and children of friends, which led to community trade shows. I realized at that time our small town did not have a store for children, and so lit the fire of opening a children’s specialty store. Over the years The Burlap Sack Originals, named for all the burlap we used embellishing overalls, has grown and changed along with me and our community into what it is today. Even in the beginning, I felt a strong connection to being a part of our local community and creating lasting relationships with staff and community members.
Over the years, as I grew older so did my purpose. I felt the need to inspire young mom’s and older mom’s like me to feel confident and happy as their life roles changed!
