When I was a little girl, my Dad found a wrecked trainload of cantaloupes scattered across the Topeka railway. The wreck was messy, but the cantaloupes were in good condition. My Dad decided to purchase them at a discount and turn a profit.
Where others saw a mess, my Dad saw a challenge. He turned those piles of melons into a way of life and realized potential in the broken that needed a little fixing. His bold vision forged many businesses to come.
My father’s entrepreneurial verve influenced my own professional passions. It started with an experimental open classroom in the sixties, followed by an emporium of freshly-prepared take-home food in the eighties, and finally a deep dive into online shopping in 2004.
I overheard someone at my athletic club discuss selling a custom window treatments website that was financially struggling. I didn’t know much about window coverings, but the opportunity to dive into ecommerce was energizing. This could be my cantaloupe that just needed to be dusted off.
In 2008 my daughter, Alissa, bitten by the efficient and convenient marketplace in cyberspace, asked to come aboard Blindsgalore. Up for the challenge of making something custom easy to order online, Alissa brought the perspective and spirit of the Internet generation.
Uninterested in expensive personal designers, Alissa sought to give customers the professional designer experience without the designer price. There’s nothing better than getting something at your doorstop, crafted just for you, without leaving your house. Plus, she’s a sucker for free shipping.
