I would venture to say that there is really no such thing as a small business. It didn’t take long for me to discover that even the smallest endeavors take big work, big ideas and a huge amount of support. I am blessed to have a group of people that have been that source of support. They all deserve recognition and have my endless gratitude.
Thank you to the countless friends and family for the positive reinforcement.
To my mom, Ellanora, thank you for the enthusiasm and genuine love of dishes that you passed along to me. You made bringing my treasures home that much more fun. This business is my way of honoring you, our 44 years and the dishes we admired together.
And thank you to my husband Tom. Within moments of my mentioning a vintage dishes shop, you had a name for it and began promoting it. Without your financial support, I would have never been able to take the time and energy to pursue it. And without your love and belief in me, I may have given up.
Thanks to my mother-in-law, Rachelle for the spark that shot this idea in to the light. Thank you for taking me to the Country Living conference that showed me all the possibilities and introduced me to Etsy. And thank you for all of the encouragement along the way.
Thanks to Echo and Jannicke for your creative input. The ability to bounce ideas and engage in creative dialog with you has been invaluable. I still love working with you.
Thank you Cristine for the fabulous logo and the inspiration for honor-ware.
My desire is that this endeavor will bring joy to others and that each cup, saucer and plate will be ambassadors of hope. I pray that this will be a dishes ministry and will bring light into the lives it will touch. I take pride that this company reuses and recycles lost treasures. And in that spirit, I plan to make each and every business decision environmentally conscious.
