While I still have a lot to learn about the industry, this isn’t my first rodeo when it comes to blogs. I have spent the past several years (who’s counting) trying to figure out what I want to become when I grow up. So… I’ve decided not to grow up. I love writing and have enjoyed Doing Life Being Tiff & Weekend Retweat (among other blogs that I contributed to.) I still LOVE to travel and may post occasionally on my personal blog. I hope to integrate all my passions at some point.
I fell in love with the “junk” community while researching for a client who hired me to get their Facebook page up and running. They created fabulous tables out of salvaged wood from Ohio barns. I was totally inspired by the creativity of all the talented people I discovered while connecting my clients to the world. Needless to say… I jumped in feet first. 🙂
Flown The Coop was born after Kristie Herlong of the Green Owl and I decided to try our luck (and fill her truck) at the Springfield Antique Show & Flea Market. We had no idea what we were doing… ignorance is bliss. We loved it and were totally hooked!
Check us out… we really did look like Sanford & Sons.
Flown The Coop? The name comes from my constant desire to be authentic, think outside the box and pursue my dreams. I think I flew the coop at birth… I have always bucked the system and dreamed of owning my own business. Truth is Jeff & I actually flew the coop this past year. We might be the only parents to actually move away from our kids and leave them the house. 🙂
Jeff & I have recently moved to Houston, Texas where I am currently building Flown The Coop. I regularly set up at Canton Trade Days in Canton, Texas and just returned after two weeks “in the field” at Cole’s Antique show in Warrenton. I love the friendships Jeff & I are making along the way. The esprit de corps is amazing!
I am continually searching for new sources of junk around our new nest and providing Jeff with projects to work on at the ranch. We are so lucky to have a place to spread out and get dirty. Oh the stories I can tell. 🙂
That my friends… is what I intend to share with ya’all…. our adventures in junk and the amazing people that comes across our path. AND please pack your patience, as I am not a wizard at WordPress. The blog itself is a work in progress. 🙂
Life is a journey.. come travel with me!
