Worked out of the garage

At one point in my life I thought it would be fun to design chair covers for parties. I still have the Chiavari chair in the garage to prove it. The idea was squelched when I discovered Wildflower Linens. You gotta check out their website to see how amazing these chairs look. Youngsong Martin used to be a fashion designer, but was having difficulty making money. In 2001 she closed her fashion business and started a service out of her garage renting haut couture table linens. She went to SCORE to get some help with her business idea. Now her designs are in tons of magazines and have even appeared in television shows like ABC’s Extreme Weddings. Additionally, her table fashions have been used for parties after the Academy awards and Grammys. Guess that visit to SCORE paid off.
