Third time’s a charm
The former owner of Country Hearts and Flowers and Homespun from the Heart has decided to try it again.
Jan Davis recently opened Jan’s Country Homespun Hearts on Lebanon Road. This is third time she’s tried the business and hopes she has it “right” this time, she said.
“I keep coming back because I love going to all the trade shows and being around people. I’m definitely a people person,” Davis said.
In order to do trade shows and buy merchandise at the shows, Davis had to get another business license. She decided to put the previous shop names together to create the current name.
“People are so confused and I’m sorry about that, but if I changed my name now I would have to change all of my tax papers, vendor contacts and get another new license,” Davis said.
“Those are all too hard to change so I’m hoping people will eventually understand that I’m a gift shop with a similar name as the flower shop downtown. I have added the word ‘Jan’s’ to the name in order to help a little,” Davis said.
It all started back in 1985 when Davis and her husband Larry opened Country Hearts and Flowers at 1717 Lebanon Road. They sold fresh flowers and made their own country-inspired crafts in the basement and back room of the building. They can be remembered for their popular wooden geese.
