About the Owner
Hi everyone, and thank you for your interest in my shop, Monarch Mercantile! Your support of my small business is truly appreciated. It's a wild time to become an entrepreneur, but I'm excited for the challenge.
I grew up in Senecaville, OH where my parents still live and operate the family business, Thompson Family Motors. My mother has also been a bus driver for 26 years for RHLSD. After graduating from Meadowbrook High School, my daughter and I moved to Columbus where I graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration. After several years of city life, I moved back to this area so that my daughter could attend Meadowbrook and be near our family. Since moving back to my hometown I've worked in our community as a banker, server, and bartender! I'm also very lucky for my current position with a local mortgage company, because without my supportive boss and co-workers, this small business would not have gotten off the ground.
When the covid-19 pandemic began, I made a few Groot planters, and they make me so happy. I wasn't planning on selling them, but after posting photos on Facebook, I was overwhelmed with interest in them! I knew this could be a great way to get my daughter the new saxophone she had been wanting. The next thing I know, my group text with my sister, mom, dad, and daughter was pinging non-stop with business name ideas. I quickly registered for a vendor's license, and decided to look at a store front in Byesville. I've always wished there was a flower shop here, and it's been my dream to open one myself! A week later I signed a lease and began getting everything painted...and planted! It's been a wild ride so far, but i'm so excited to bring this exciting new business to Byesville. I hope it brings joy to people who have a passion for plants, just like myself and my family.
A few people I'd like to thank:
My Daughter, Sydney - Thank you for always being the motivation I need to do better! You are so caring and wonderful to me. I'm biased, but I have the best 15 year old around. I couldn't be managing this if you weren't as fantastic as you are. I love you so much!
My Parents, Debbie and Steve- Thank you for all the support you have given me over the years. Without you I wouldn't be here today. Mom, your love for plants will truly show through in this store. You have a passion like no other. Every single time I ask for help with something you have been there in a flash. Dad, your strong work ethic and loyalty to your customers is exactly the way I want to do business. I love you both so very much.
My sister, Mandy - This business would not have been possible without you. You have supported my ideas and pushed me to follow through with them. You have spent countless hours being my CEO, Creative Director, and Manager at times. I can't thank you enough for everything you have done.
P.S. You will always have a position at my store!
My significant other, Joe - Despite the countless tasks I have given you, you've not once told me "this is a bad idea." You have certainly been my rock. Thank you for always driving me places when I ask, and taking on so much more than you already do to help our family. You and Lane mean the world to me.
Grandma Nancy - I love you; thank you for all the things you do for the family. I could spend a year typing all the things you have personally done for me alone. We are so lucky to have you. I can't wait for you to sew me a cute apron to wear! :)
Grandma Judy - Although you are no longer with us, you always believed in me, and believed that having my big heart was better than anything else. I know you are looking down on us smiling, and thinking of something witty to say. Love you!
Thank you Dave and Cheri Hill for showing the space and being so supportive of me.
To the rest of my family and friends - I LOVE YOU ALL, thank you for being excited for me and giving me great advice. You all mean so much to me!
We love our hometown and want to see it thrive, even during hard times. We are with you no matter what you are going through and will be there to support you whenever we can.
