Our greatest achievement was also our biggest challenge. In August of 2011, Hurricane Irene blew through NJ and left rising rivers in her wake. Our store, which had been opened a total of 7 weeks at that time, was under 4 feet of water. We lost everything—all the inventory, furniture, floor, walls, everything. Plus, we didn’t qualify for any small business loans because we were not in business long enough. However, with contributions and help from our friends and family, we were able to rebuild and reopen within 6 weeks. Now, as we approach our 5th year in business, we can look back and see all the progress we have made. Words cannot express how grateful we are for the love and support, hugs and heavy lifting that we have received. We are grateful to live and work in Denville. We are excited to continue building and creating here!
“To the generous mind the heaviest debt is that of gratitude, when it is not in our power to repay it.”
– Benjamin Franklin.
