Here’s how I have prepared to help you do this:

I have been a networker, entrepreneur and eccentric since day one. By the time I was 6 years old, I already had an impressive collection of business cards. I was fascinated by the process of running a business. It was magical to me that each one was making their way through their own unique identity rather than just accepting the status quo.

I have opened and run nine re-sale shops, the first one in 1994 when the re-sale model was limited to antique shops, thrift stores and garage sales. Drawing on the image of the old time trading post, I created a business model of community based resale by curating one person’s unwanted items and making them available for the next person.

I also worked as a real estate agent for 10 years and am versed in the process of aligning client needs with prospective spaces. I specialized in helping independent entrepreneurs find live-work spaces for manifesting their dreams.

I love exploring spaces and seeing possibility in the old, used and discarded. In my shop days I spent hours discovering how the layout and placement of items affected both my work flow and customer experience. I now posses an intuitive sense of how to get things working in any space… and I love doing it. Nothing is so wonderful as a space that works.

Here’s what people are saying about Indie Cottage:

Nina has the ability to make something that feels impossibly complex and intimidating into a simple and doable affair. Just like that.  ~ Krista Joy Arias, Tierra Soul Urban Farm

After looking for nearly 15 years for someone to help me with my myriad projects, from selling my antiques to sitting on the board of my small legacy publishing company, I finally found Nina. If anyone can get a project off the ground, Nina can. ~ Pauline DeFriez
