–Interview by Samantha on 10/27
- When did you start your business and why did you start it?
I started my business about 25 years ago in Chicago when I worked in retail. My customers were the ones to launch my business by asking for my help with personal shopping. After retail hours, I spent my extra time with my customers helping them shop for clothing and helping them find the right paint and decorating. After moving to Florida, I formed an LLC and began painting, decorating and image consulting just as I was doing in Chicago.
About eight years ago Time Warner, now known as Bright House, found and hired me to decorate their corporate offices for the holidays. I began building, engineering and fabricating to create the look I needed. I realized what I was creating in my head could not be bought and therefor I had to make it.
- What kind of products or services do you offer at your business?
We sell service, creativity and hard work…all to better you and your surroundings.
- How often do you shop at Fiberglass Coatings? What makes you a repeat customer?
I shop at Fiberglass Coatings to find materials that will work with my display materials. I use these materials for all kinds of projects; some are used as lightweight shapes to hang from ceilings. The liquids I purchase are used as a bonding for hardening surfaces so materials are more durable and or water proof.
4. What products do you normally buy from Fiberglass Coatings? Can you tell us a specific product/products you buy and what you use them for?
We use fiberglass tape or material sheets and 2-part epoxy. We buy foam, tape, gloves, brushes, rollers, etc. Today, we are creating a hard-coat surface to hang styrofoam lettering from the ceilings for a holiday decoration project.
