How it all began ......
"Things I do" started as a home based business
in 2002 when my husband John and I (Robin) were interested
in a business that both could become involved with. After
attending an entrepreneur show in Toronto, we were drawn to
a booth that showcased equipment for producing printed items
such as business cards and invitations. In fact, we went back
to this booth 5 times!!
We talked with the representative on-site, took their literature
and also investigated them out with the Better Business Bureau
in the U.S. As a result, market research from Barrie to Niagara
Falls ensued and we discovered that there was definitely a
market for a quality, inexpensive product. There was however
a bigger market for personalized service, not a 1-800 number
or a "here's the book let me know if you find something"
and that's how "Things I DO" came to be.
In late 2004, the need for assistance became clear, and this
need was met with Christine becoming a partner. Christine
and I opened a retail unit located at 48 Ellen Street in Barrie,
Ontario in May 2005. Due to these larger facilities, we are
now selling practically anything you need for your celebration,
but as always, specialize in invitations, with our dedication
to personal service.
If you're looking for invitations or any other item for your
special day, please call for an individual appointment or
call for store hours. We would love the opportunity to assist
you in preparing for your special occasion; save you time
and also take some of the worry from you.
Best Wishes on your Special Day
Robin & Christine
