How did you get into your business, and what motivated you to start it? In the spring of 2012, I was considering opening a consignment store that offered high-end, country and primitive home décor and furniture. Patterned from the successful antique store run by my parents, Bob and Rosalee Willis, and with much encouragement from my husband, Todd, and the endless efforts of my entire family, I decided now was the time. I can now mark this off my bucket list. Because I wanted a unique and hip name for the business, I turned to my hip, 23-year-old daughter, Katiann, for help.
