In our last Shopkeeper Story of 2021, we’re chatting with Lisa of Bridenbaker Designs.
Lisa never expected to be a full-time artist and shop owner—she originally got her degree in law enforcement! As part of her degree, she took a few art therapy electives that got her hooked on creating.
Mixing natural materials with paint, Lisa makes beautifully eclectic artwork that she sells to consignment stores, on Etsy, at markets, and wholesale to other shopkeepers.
Lisa shares how having ADHD has affected her business, why connecting with other store owners is key to growing her shop, and how she gives back to the Savvy Shopkeeper community.
