Seashells and Lemons Story
Born with an insatiable entrepreneurial spirit, I have always been a big dreamer with a fascinating imagination. I designed and created earlier version of the gnomes during the covid quarantine period. They were my entertainment to drown out the boredom and world chaos.
The official Gulfport Gnome was crafted shortly after moving to Gulfport, Florida in early 2021. I was inspired by the sun, the sea and the serenity I found here in this weird little magical town.
These mini gnomes have kept me entertained and occupied. They have been with me on biking, hiking and sightseeing adventures. They have been my friend when I needed one and my security blanket when I felt alone. Knowing these cute creations of mine bring joy to others is priceless.
Materials sourced to make the gnomes are proudly purchased within the USA. Promoting small business and keeping funds within local communities will always be of utmost importance.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm really glad you're here!
