Hi! I’m Kim, welcome to Thirteen Chairs. About three years ago I got the bug to start my own business, at the time I was working for a major home improvement retailer in a position that was frequently physically demanding and I knew I couldn’t keep it up for ever, I was getting older (never old, only older). At first I was going to try to start my dream as a side business and grow it into something bigger but I could never quite get a good start. So I determined that if I was ever going to do what I loved before it was too late, I had to jump in with everything I had and go for it. I quit my job…mild panic.
I have always liked antiques, paint, fabric, wallpaper and anything home décor. I love the hunt. Garage Sales, Thrift stores, Consignment shops, curbsides and Craigslist. Taking something old and somethimes broken and turning them into something beautiful. My friends and coworkers startedto bring me furniture, in particular, chairs. I started with around thirteen and have since added quite a bit to my stash. Its been tough keeping hubs out of the basement so he doesn’t see how much I have accumulated.
I am grateful that I have the opportunity to do what I love. Thanks for stopping by!
