I figured it was about time that I let you guys in on something that you may have wondered about.
Why is my shop called Folding Chair Designs?
Well, my sister talked me into opening an Etsy shop to sell the hair accessories that
I was previously making just for friends and family.
We all played around with shop names for a week or two.
At the time, I had no idea that this name
or even the shop
would be sticking around for as long as it has.
Late one night, I was listening to Regina Spektor's latest album at the time, Far,
and the song Folding Chair came on.
(If you haven't heard this song, I linked to a youtube video above or listen to it through Spotify below)
I've loved Regina's music for almost a decade, so naming my business after one of her songs was not a stretch for me, at all.
The words are simple. They capture the kind of life that Tony and I have together.
I love simplicity in everyday life.
We have always found the majority of our joy in little things,
trips to the coast, family time, camping, road trips, live music...
This song captures what I hope we can continue to be together.
So. Folding Chair Designs was born.
And there you have it, folks.
If I ever decide to manufacture actual folding chairs, you'll be the first to know.
And here is a photo of me at 1am, pumping out my first wholesale order just weeks after opening up for business.
