A loan of $2,500 helped make the extra signage I need to draw business to Poetica Art and Antiques. I offer more than my name implies and need to catch people's attention better when they drive, walk, or bike past the shop.

Traci's story

I have always been drawn towards design, furniture, personal expression and helping people. My mom encouraged me whenever we moved (7 times growing up) which helped me cope with different environments. I'm sensitive to environments and believe that everyone deserves to feel comforted, safe, and valued when at home.

My true nature: When I was in college I juggled doing community service and working in small woman-owned businesses (furniture, flowers, bistro) while getting my education. I continue to do what I love - and help people through all of my efforts. I'm proud of this and hope it inspires other people who feel "different or unique" to hang in there and find their way.

This is my time to create my own signature business in a wonderfully diverse town. I can't think of better way to pull my experiences together to make a sustainable life for myself and my son.
