Family

In the Beginning….

I suppose it is important for me to take you back a few years before I can bring you into the big, beautiful present.

Pull up your big comfy chair….

When I first dove into the world of DIY it was out of a desire to learn because I am cheap frugal  😉  and I have always been a do it myself kind of gal. I’m not afraid of much, except maybe electricity.  Lets face it, that schtufffff hurts. (yes, that my friends is a voice of experience)

A few years back I was a vendor at a local tag sale (a monthly shopping venue that opens one long weekend a month and offers all the lovely home decor and fashion you can find behind a single set of doors in a multi vendor environment). It was there that I met an awesome Jesus loving gal,  let’s call her Susan; since that’s actually her name.

Susan and I hit it off instantly, like we’d known each other our entire lives. We decided to open our own little shop together. Cliff Notes: We had a lot of fun, shared a lot of laughter and shared a few tears.  We met a lot of amazing people; both customers and vendors, but FFWD 4 years… I was still working full time in addition to the store, Susan worked almost full time and then I lost my Dad to cancer.  Nothing will make you evaluate what’s important in life like losing a parent.

We made the difficult decision to close down the store, regain some of our time, sanity and passion for why we got started in the first place…. that was at the beginning of 2018.  I finally feel a sense of un-restraint and repose three and a half years later.

I don’t know where this journey is taking me but I choose to enJOY it every step of the way. Thank you for visiting I appreciate you stopping by.

When you tire of your crazy; come hang out in mine! It may not always make sense but it will always be a good time. You can find me most often in my fb group, The Lorny Bin, we’d love for you to join us!
