I was born and raised in South Georgia. I don't have a Southern accent, nor do I like sweet tea. I do use the word 'y'all', but in one syllable. At the age of 24, I opened Firefly with my dad. He was a lawyer (the Atticus type) by day, and the store's antique buyer. I was in charge of buying everything else, as well as the day-to-day operations. Firefly is a unique, eclectic treasure in what is quickly becoming a vast sea of homogeneous, big chain box stores. I hope that is reflected as I continue to add products to this site. In my own life, I personally believe that "Less is More", so again, products chosen might range from extremely utilitarian, to whimsical, to just beautiful. Firefly is about making your house a home and enhancing it with useful objects that exude character. When I am not working, HOME is where I love to be with my two darling boys and husband. That is my favorite job of all.
