Connie and family have a special little pet named Bosco, a boxer.
He likes to be picked up like a child when you come home and hug you.
He will very emotional and will sit and cry if you ignore him.

If you were stranded on an island...what 5 things would you
take with you? My 5 kids, maybe not what you meant, but they
are my pride and joy and the only thing that matters to me.
Now I asked...what would you take if the kids were a given :)
here is that answer...

Survival??? Mascara,lipstick, good book, coffee, iced tea with
lemon, I'd be set! Now, I'm wondering what that says about
me??? I started drinking coffee at age 14 on a camping trip,
of course with lots of cream and sugar. I now drink it black.
Ice tea was served at every meal. I was a bookworm growing up
and still love to read but don't have the time. And makeup?
Well, can't live without that! I sold cosmetics for several
years and can never have enough!!

How long have you been business?
I started in 1993 by selling in antique malls.

How long have you sold on line?
2 1/2 years, but it seems longer than that!

what prompted you to sell online? to generate more income.

Do you sell off line in an antique or craft shop?
I started in 1993 by selling in antique malls.
At one time I was in 5 different ones, 2 of which were 1
hour away in different directions from my home.
I opened up a brick and mortar in Kimmswick, Missouri
almost 8 years ago. Kimmswick is a historical town with
90 residents that sits on the banks of the mighty
Mississippi river. It is about 30" south of St. Louis.
