Meet the Maker: Bridget from Bridge the Gap
Okay, okay. You've probably noticed by now, we love sharing small businesses we love in the shop! One of the best parts of being a plant parent is being able to create more plants by propagation. Today, we'd like to introduce you to Bridget, maker of designed propagation stations that would look amazing in any home.
What inspired you to start your business?
I’m a stay at home mom with three kids and my youngest is 17. We will soon be empty nesters so what better time than now to find something that brings me joy. I love interior design, home decor, and DIY. Making products to showcase plants started as something just for myself and friends. Only with the encouragement of friends and family has it evolved into a business and I am so grateful I listened and took a leap of faith to start my own business. I have so many dreams and goals and am excited to see what the future holds.
What has been your favorite part about owning a small business?
Seeing my products in other peoples homes. There are so many choices for propagations stations and plant hangers. It is the highest compliment to have them choose me. Starting a business is hard work. There are many ups and downs. Many days when you doubt yourself. I can’t tell you how many times I have asked myself “what the heck am I doing?” But each follow, like, comment and share on social media is worth more than most people know.
Oh its so hard to pick just one. I love any kind of trailing plant but when it really comes down to it, it has to be my fiddle fig. I’ve had her since she was just a little baby and she has grown so much in the last couple years. I killed the first one I had so its good to know I can now keep one alive and thrive.
