Moving to California and amazed by the sunlight, I was on the search for great-looking custom window treatments at a fair price. I wanted something that would match my style, that I could design on my own and order quickly. Lo and behold, I discovered Blindsgalore to make exactly what I wanted, all from scratch. Nothing came off of a shelf and I could do it all from the comfort of my home, where my windows were right in front of me. It was everything I dreamed of and I had to be part of the custom blinds movement.
As a little girl, I watched my Dad pick over a scattered pile of cantaloupes on a Kansas railway. He purchased them at a discount, sensing potential value. His vision to unearth new possibilities continues to inspire me.
In the '60s, I taught at a highly-successful experimental public school (still going today), followed by founding the Parkway Market, an emporium of freshly-prepared take-home food in the '80s
Motivated by the lack of quality window treatments, I was on the lookout for a snappy DIY experience and the opportunity to race into e-commerce in the burgeoning home décor marketing place was too intriguing to ignore and Blindsgalore became mine.
The special niche of custom window treatments, made to order, crafted by real people in this generic world of mass-produced things inspired me then and continues to drive me today. We make this journey of finding the perfect window treatment easy and fun, delivered right to your front door.
With the explosion of shopping online for home decor, my daughter boarded the Blindsgalore ship in 2008 and, as CEO, she upholds our family ideals dedicated to quality, perfection and beauty. We are grounded by the longest history of selling window treatments online with an unmatchable depth of product knowledge from real design experts who truly care about personal service. Our family welcomes you to our Blindsgalore home.
