Starting a home-based Internet business was a natural progression from our combined 26 years of managing brick and mortar stores for major retail chains. It all began when I won the auction for my nine year old niece’s sketch of an Ann Estelle doll, which she had asked her mother to list on ebay. Armed with my, “ebay for dummies”, manual, I managed to win the item despite my cousin’s highly developed sniping techniques. I was hooked after that!
When our three bedroom colonial home began to feel more like a one bedroom and two stockroom house, my husband and I decided it was time to find our own retail space. For over a year, we searched for the right location at the right price, without any luck. One day, on his way to Don and Bob’s for a chocolate almond custard, my husband spotted a, “For Lease” sign at 4506 Culver Road.
The rest, as we say, is history…
