Flown The Coop is dedicated to those who can’t be caged. Our mission is to aspire to inspire creativity and a zest for life.
I can honestly say that I have stayed true to creating a lifestyle on my terms. Jeff likes to remind me that I created my job (especially when I find anything to complain about). I love my little shop, that provides an outlet for creative energy, and all the lovely people who have crossed my path since opening my doors. Flown The Coop is not just a place to buy unique finds and gifts, but a developing lifestyle brand. The kind of lifestyle that questions conventional wisdom, looks for alternatives uses for the discarded, and continually promotes the makers, creatives, entrepreneurs, and anyone who believes in pursuing a fulfilling life on their terms.
Flown The Coop is an unique mixture of Industrial, Vintage and Homestead Goods. Curating industrial and vintage pieces for The Coop is my original passion. I also enjoy finding fun gift items, like the Blue Q socks and oven mitts. Our Homestead Line has naturally developed as I discovered local products that support Burton’s entrepreneurs. I am excited to now introduce Young Living essential oils to the Homestead Line. I am impressed with the Young Living seed to seal guarantee, that insures a pristine final product. These products promote my new passion, WELLNESS.
My journey toward wellness began at the beginning of the year with a bundle of unfortunate health issues. What started as a year to be Fierce, turned into the year of Resilience. As a result, I dove into learning about wellness.
First Jeff and I focused on our diet, changing to a (more or less) Paleo diet. I then created a wellness room for stretching and an inverted table for Jeff’s back (this was inspired by my friend Pamela Hutchins, author extraordinaire). I discovered Lynsey Kramer’s Five Chicks Wellness Facebook Page and Instagram. If you aren’t following The Yonder Way Farm, along with their various social media platforms, you are missing out! They are the most adorable family with an impressive devotion to providing local and healthful food to the surrounding area. I became intrigued by essential oils as I saw Lynsey share how her family was using them in their daily lives.
Convinced essential oils were worth trying in my pursuit of wellness, I purchased a starter kit. It arrived just in time for a buying trip to Ohio. Stress Relief became my friend on the way to Ohio as I drove through some hellacious storms. I discovered Frankincense helped some skin issues. A mixture of coconut oil and Panway helped ease lingering discomfort in my arm that I broke in February. I used that same mixture, adding Copaiba, to help in healing my new tattoo. Lavender helped me relax. I picked up a car diffuser that made a HUGE difference in my truck (lets just say junking is a dirty job). When I returned, I fell in love with Thieves. I washed all my new pieces and the whole store, including windows, with a mixture of water, vinegar, dash of blue dish soap and Thieves. I have enjoyed dropping Tangerine and Lemon into my water. Honestly, I am a little surprised by how often I grab an essential oil during the day. Check this info graph out for a few ideas:
There is so much to learn! So… Flown The Coop is offering an Essential Oils 101 Class Thursday, June 15th at 6:30PM. Lynsey Kramer will be teaching us the basics about essential oils and how you can incorporate them into your daily lives.
Come for light snacks and drinks. Weather permitting, we’ll hold the class in the back yard. If weather is not coroporating, we’ll move the class inside The Coop.
Check out our Facebook Event for more details and to let me know if you plan on attending.
I invite you to join my wellness journey. I plan on sharing more as I continue to explore various aspects of living on purpose. Cheers to a zest for life ~ let’s live with a lot of flavor and gusto! What have you recently discovered in your pursuit of creating a lifestyle on your terms? I’d love to hear from you!
