I was at Walmart one afternoon running errands and I needed a headband & some hair elastics. As I looked through their selection, I realized I could make a more fashionable product for a better price. The idea for the store sort of took off from there.
At first I didn't really tell any of my friends or family what I was planning because I worried that they might talk me out of it. Most were excited once I opened up.
I'm hoping that this store allows me to work my way off of disability and make enough money to help take care of my family's needs. It will also give me a creative outlet that I've craved for a long time.
