Anyway, here are my co-owners own words, who just happens to be my oldest son, on why we started our stores.
Welcome to our store. We are a New Small Business, located in McMinnville, Oregon. My Mother & I decided, 2007 is the year that things need to start changing for the good!
All our life, my family has tried to do the right things. For example, my Mother was in the Marines, and my Father, was in the Army for 13 years. So, as you could imagine, like any other normal human being, we were devastated when Cancer took my Father's Life @ the age of 37!!
I made a promise to my Dad, literally... the day he passed away. I was just barely 15 years old, and my Dad said, "Michael, I need you to Promise me ONE thing!".
Not knowing what I had in store, but with the intention of keeping this Promise, I asked him "What?." To this day, I still do my best to keep up with his response;
"Promise me you'll take care of your family, especially your Mother. Your my oldest boy, and I know you can do it."
I hope you will get a little sense of knowing who we are, and what this Company could be.
My Mother and I decided, not only is "The 'Nic-Nac' Shelf" and "Little Rose Bouquet And Toys" dedicated to Larry Ray Viles; July 12th, 1960 - October 13th, 1997, but also want to give back to our Community. So we're making a Promise, and that's to donate a portion, to places like Hospice, who helped my dad live as comfortable as he could in his last months. We want to give back as much as we can, for helping, in any way we can.
Thank You All, for taking the time to read this, and getting to know US a little bit more. Have a Great Day, Evening, Morning, Night...
....Most Importantly, Enjoy Your Online Shopping Experience.
