Today is our three-year anniversary and I have to say it has been some kind of a ride. In this post, I will reflect on where Global Attic has been, where we are at and where we are going as a business selling statement pieces to customers who want home decor that offers more than the regular furniture store. So, let's get to it!

I opened this business on August 1, 2016, following the passing of my parents two months apart, the end of an 11-year relationship and the loss of the graphic design/marketing job that I held for 10 1/2 years. My naturopath Linda who had helped me battle vertigo, favorite DJ Frankie Knuckles and artist Prince all passed away during this time, adding more weight to a life that had already collapsed.

I decided to take time off to figure things out. My intention was to shift gears to focus on the things that I enjoy doing - traveling, collecting ethnic art, interior decorating and giving back - and Global Attic LLC was born! At that time, the company was going to be a brief respite for me, a form of therapy that would distract me from all of the losses. I thought, eventually, I'd get back on my emotional feet again and pursue another marketing job. Three years later, and I'm still fiercely chasing my passion.
