#TBT - Throw back Thursday!

Here'a a peek back in time with an article that appeared in the local Chamber of Commerce newsletter in early 1974. By this time, The Rosemary House was open for 6 years and our mother, Bertha Reppert, had given a little section of the shop to her daughters to manage. There was a lesson in retailing hidden somewhere in this endeavor. It was simply fun for us - but look where it has lead. All the daughters that were involved with The Rosemary House while growing up are still in the retail business in one way or another. Carolynn, the oldest daughter, was away at college when Rosemary House was established. This little corner of the store is no longer filled with love beads and buttoms, but is now our very special little Fairy Corner jam packed with items for fairy gardens, books, jewelry, and fairy soaps and other fun items for fairy lovers.

Love the statement: Nancy does not entertain ideas about the possibility of future retail endeavors. Your mother knew better!!!

I love reading this article and getting a glimpse of how you all started in the business.

Oh, how very amused I am by "Nancy does not entertain ideas about the possibility of future retail endeavors." Ha! (And did you ever teach Spanish?)
