The journey to start this company has been a long one that has taken me full circle. My first jobs were in retail through high school and college. I loved it so much that after I received a BA in English from UConn, I enrolled in management training at Caldor to start my career.
This only lasted a few years as I met the future mother of my daughters there and it was going to be easier to start a family while working in the insurance field. I spent over 20 years processing many thousands of disability claims. I was laid off at my last workplace due to a restructuring of the company after Covid-19 affected them.
During this time I was able to reflect on what I like doing most. I love interacting with the public. I also enjoy the thrill of looking for something that looks really interesting and then being able to acquire it. I started collecting items that I liked and thought that there would be someone out there who this item would bring some joy to. I started selling on different websites and even sold items at a flea market.
My goal all along was to have my own store front. My company name was chosen as I was getting a physical location in the middle of West Hartford, CT. There were many suggestions that almost made the cut but my parents suggested the winner, a good find. Being an English major and having all letters lower case and a period at end end was just a way of giving the name personality and making it more fun.
Unfortunately, the storefront was never able to open in September 2022 as expected and I needed to have a website for my company sooner than expected. A lot of hard work has gone into getting this site up and running. I will try to add new items to the site every week. The hunt for a great storefront in or near West Hartford is still continuing as I want to see smiles on people’s faces when they take home these special items. There are fun items on here for all generations from the really young to the young at heart. I try to offer as many sizes of clothes that I can find to fit all people. Most of the items that are offered only have 1 in stock so be sure to choose it before it’s gone.
