Candy Shop Vintage & Nice Package Co. Owner/Designer (Candy Shop Vintage) & Owner (NPC) Design Bedford, NY
About Deirdre
I started my jewelry company, Candy Shop Vintage while pregnant with my daughter (she is now six) and expanded from our guest room, to a corporate office to also having a retail store in Charleston, SC. Our store is going on three years strong and this year we opened our own distribution center, Nice Package Co. to service our own business needs as well as others. The struggle is real doing all this with a young child and no family nearby for support. My husband and I both work full time and do a LOT of juggling. My daughter has come to work with me a lot. Sometimes I feel torn between work and being a Mom but I remind myself being a business owner enables me to have a more wholistic approach to work and life and sometimes the best of both.
