A woman in Powell has found what makes her happy. It's a store she started called Missy's Treasures.
She's using social media to share her merchandise.
The owner of the resale shop was in the banking business for 25 years.
"I just decided I wanted to do something else," Missy Crisp said.
She started her second career last October.
"I was opening a store with and pocket books and jewelry. I did a piece of furniture for display. It sold. I did another piece of furniture for display. It sold. And it's just blossomed from there," she said.
She finds second-hand furniture and refurbishes it, recycles it, and resells it.
"I go to garage sales, thrift shops, auctions. I've actually dumpster dove and saved pieces of furniture," she explained.
She saves them with fresh coats of paint.
"I shop every day for a piece of furniture or two or three or eighteen and I paint them. I bring them back and paint them and sell them," she explained.
She sells a lot of them because customers appreciate her creativity.
Shoppers show up at her store to find treasures but most of the merchandise is already sold.
"I sell 90% on facebook. I have a huge facebook following," she said. "I do between 10 and twelve pieces of furniture a day if the weather is permitting and I put it on facebook. By the next morning almost half of it is already gone."
Missy's Treasures on Clinton Highway is a one woman store. She shops in the mornings, paints in the afternoon, and posts pictures on facebook most evenings.
"When people come into shop who don't do facebook they'll say it's all sold. And I'll say it's facebook. Get on my facebook. Join the facebook. Buy from facebook. If you want it just say I want it. I'll put it on hold and you come look at it and purchase it that way," she said.
Most people pick up their purchases on Saturdays, clearing out her inventory.
The store is closed Sundays when she's hard at work painting to re-stock and to meet the demand on facebook.
"I have great customers and I appreciate them," she said. "It's the best job anybody could ever have."
