Yesterday's memories lovingly mixed with shades of today
... Quote of the week: " A house is made of bricks and beams, a home is made of love and dreams "
~ ABOUT Me ~
~ My First Shop ~
~ Spring 1997 ~
I started business 31 years ago, as "Memory Maker", October 1st, 1988.
I purchased an historic house in 1992 and created a full service gift shop, that then became a full service florist when the local flower shop owner retired, and sold me her local flower business.
My shop was located in a small town in central Illinois - a midwestern town full of kind, and warm-hearted people. We were located one block from Main Street, in fact, you could see the beautiful courthouse and town square north-east from our shop. It seemed like a town out of a storybook. We filled each room with different home decor styles.
The townspeople supported us, and with God's grace we grew each year. It was hard leaving the 'shop', and moving to the Western suburbs of Chicago. In fact I missed it so much, that I decided to bring the 'shop' to you via the Internet.
I hope you enjoy this website, my "shop", and web boutique. Please come back often, as products are continually changing.
