Jodi’s customers have found her to be not only knowledgeable about her products but also most accommodating when they are looking for a particular item. Her quest is to find Made in American, Fair Trade Merchants companies. You will find a full line of organic and natural items including spices, herbs, teas, chocolates, sauces and candles, and gift items for the home. One of the stores most popular items is by Badger Balms Essential Oils: If you’re looking for a good night’s sleep, use the Badger Balm for sleep.
Always growing, last year she introduced a line of children’s toys, Melissa & Doug; and a smaller line, not as well known yet, called Dandelion, that features organic items for babies, soft rattles, dolls and animals, incredibly soft and cuddly. Again, Made in America!
By training and education, Jodi was in telecommunications and emergency management. Wanting to get out of the corporate world, she decided to take her effort and intensity and put it in a more creative direction.
Born and raised in Connecticut, she is one of 10 siblings. Family and friends are what ground her. Jodi’s brother lives in Bristol, so when looking to start on a new chapter in her life she thought what better place.
“Bristol is closer to Connecticut,” she said. “I already have family here and there is no place else I would rather open a business”
