My name is Jennifer and I am the owner/operator of a small shop in Amityville, NY. Since it's just me (for now) running things, I still like to refer to the business as an "Us", so please let me introduce you the entire staff of Me, Myself, and I.
I've been working in the travel and event industry for over 20 years and, as a part-time gig, I launched my own travel agency in 2012. In 2019, I took a leap of faith and left my full time job to focus 100% on my agency. Business has just started picking up then...
Covid -19 hit. The entire world came to a stand still and my dream of a successful travel agency was hanging in the balance.
Not to be defeated, I shifted gears, again, and started a little shop that was part thrift, part upcycle, part it needed to find it's identity.
So where does the name come from? I wanted someing that would stand out, and it seems I am always working on one PROJECT or another. While I was searching for a name was just about the time I got married and took my new husband's last name. ODELL is my maiden name. So putting the two together was a nice way to keep things simple whole also holding onto a bit of my roots.
Ever since I was a kid, I always felt bad for old items that were just thrown away. Maybe it's because I am the grandchild of the Depression Era or it's because I just had a natural curiosity about fixing things, but my love of discarded furniture, crafts & upcycling has led me down a winding path to be the ONLY Fusion Mineral Paint retailer on Long Island & an exclusive retailer for Redesign with Prima.
Thank you for looking around my shop!
