I am first and foremost a child of God. I am honored and humbled to wear the title of wife, mom, daughter, sister and friend. All of these titles are gifts from God. Along with the before mentioned roles in my life, I am also a southern girl who loves from where she came. I was born into a family who loves history and rescuing things from the past. We see beauty in things others see as unbeautiful. I come from a long line of farmers and cattlemen. The women in my life have been strong, determined women who never minded a hard day’s work and never minded getting their hands dirty. I am proud and thankful for my heritage, as they all helped mold me into the woman I am today. I am a stylist, treasure hunter, and lover of all things chippy, wooden, white, and vintage. In my lifetime, I will continually seek to "do all things as unto Him."
I have to share how we came up with the name Barn Door Trading Co. Long story short…My mother’s daddy, my Pa, was a cattle trader for many years until his death. My uncle Mike worked alongside him for many of those years and still continues in the cattle business. Through these years, they have been on the same farm with the same barn...a barn that I remember since I was a little bitty girl watching my Pa pull on his barn boots and walk out to. This is the same barn that I now love to climb into the loft and hunt for any treasures that might be buried there. And, that door…that simple, wooden, charming, full of character barn door. It has nothing grand about it, yet speaks volumes to this girl’s heart. Lastly, I have to mention that the name Barn Door Trading Co., does not mean Barn Door Trading Company. It means Barn Door Trading Community because that’s what I want this journey to be about…community.
“As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord”. That is my vision. That is my goal. It’s as simple as that. Let me add…If you choose to shop with us, I want it to be a joy filled experience from start to finish. I want you to feel welcome. I want you to feel special. I want you to find that “something special” that you can’t live without. My desire is for you to leave our sale feeling like you have made a new friend.
