Main Street Minute: Lucy Girl & Company

Posted: Updated:
One person's trash is someone else's treasure.

That holds true for this week's Main Street Minute where Sarahbeth Ackerman spoke to one woman who made revamping and repurposing into a career.

Heather Donarski has an easy commute to work. It's just downstairs of her home. That's just one of the perks of being the owner/operator of Lucy Girl & Company.

Once she steps into her work place, its business as usual.

"It's kind of hard to pin point what I do because I'm all over the board. The cool thing about what I'm trying to do is the fact that none of my merchandise will ever be the same. I'm always going to keep expanding the horizons and making new things,” says Donarski.

The point of her business is take old pieces that people would normally overlook and make them new again.

"A lot of what I do comes straight from the heart. It's pieces that I would want in my own home. And the cool thing about these pieces is that they're totally customizable. A lot of them are repurposed from old antique things, some things that people would consider junk,” says Donarski.

A crafter and do-it-yourselfer, Donarski finds inspiration everywhere. And once she is creating a masterpiece for her clients, she hopes that they can actually take a piece away and say that this was made just for me.

For those of who would like to learn more about this business, Lucy Girl & Company has a presence both online and in vendor shows. Just search the business on Facebook or catch her at her next vendor show at Vintage City right off of Burdick Expressway East in Minot.
