"Now this may sound crazy, actually, I know it does. But this is the first time (possibly the second, but I think it was the first!) Jimmy brought me to visit his hometown of medford lakes, I told him I was going to open a store there. At that point in time in 2013, I didn't know what that store would be, but it was spoken into the universe. 7 years later, the year was 2020, and I think we all know what that means. I, along with many other people, began to question what was important and valuable to me. In 5 years, what did I want my life to look like? I told Jimmy about the Pinecone Trading CO. store name, and really left it at that (besides making sure I RAN to claim the social media handles and email!). It was Jimmy who really encouraged me to look into what steps I would need to make my dream a reality. Leveraging an expansive retail background, I hit the ground running."
While Pinecone Trading Co., is 100% woman-owned, I couldn't leave this space without shouting out my husband, James Taylor, for being quite literally the greatest of all time. Jimmy is my cheerleader, best friend, and constant...i mean CONSTANT encourager. He makes me believe I can do big things, and PTCo wouldn't be here without his humor and hugs.
Jimmy - you're fantastic and I love you.
