Patricia Skvarenina & Diane Cutler & Rosemary Schultz
Tell us about your business.Diane, Rosemary and I met at a jewelry making class and formed an instant, bonding friendship. We all had highly successful careers, from medical to running a multimillion dollar business. We found a connection with loving art, supporting artists and making art. One night over a glass of wine, we came up with the crazy idea of starting a business that exclusively carried only American Made, handcrafted items. Also, one of our passions, is revitlalizing our downtown Owosso, Michigan. We are doing it one girl at a time. We found the perfect spot in May 2012. We scrubbed, painted, and decided to showcase an antique, claw-footed bathtub, painted bright yellow and filled with geraniums in front of our store. You cannot miss us! To showcase the artists, we use Fun...Funky...Unique ways to display the artwork. We wanted to incorporate the community by having special event nights. These events have exposed the community to various forms of art via wine nights, classes, popcorn on the street.
What makes your business stand out?All of our artwork is handcrafted, unique and one of a kind.
What's the best business advice you've received?The best advice I have ever received is "Find your passion...and do it!!!"
