My name is Kimberley Ellis. I am launching this site as I turn the big 4 0. I am excited about turning 40.There seems to come some validation and wisdom with 40. I am seeing that with those things peace is offered.
So, here I am entering into my 40th year on this earth with excitement as I launch into what I feel I’ve been led to do for the past 39 years. Did I know this would be my destiny? No, but it’s fun to look back and see how the dots were being connected from day one. It does make me wonder what number dot I am on now. How many more are there?
Off The Cape is an idea that came to my husband and I while at our home on Cape Cod. I have owned retail stores, and most recently I worked at a wonderful store in Fort Worth selling home furnishings. When I decided to leave that job, the loss I felt for design and furniture in general became very obvious. It is my passion.
I am married to Lee, who has been the biggest encourager to me during this process. I have two children, Harrison who is a thirteen and Sophie who is eleven. They are amazing, loving and creative kids. They have jumped into this business with me. Pounding estate sales, pointing out things they think I will like (which is usually accurate), loading and unloading moving trucks and agreeing to be featured artists on my site.
I have two homes on different sides of the country. Home base is in Texas, and rejuvenation home is on Cape Cod. Having all of these responsibilities helped me to decide that an online retail store was a smart idea. Starting and opening a brick and mortar store would not allow me to relish this time of my life and the stage my family is in.
With Off The Cape I hope to create a site that feels like a mom and pop store, but has the ease of shopping in your pajamas. I have also noticed that there are not many “young” people roaming around antique stores and estate sales. This saddens me because I hope that it is not a dying past time. My desire is that by me doing the legwork of finding great pieces, both new and old, I will allow you the reader to have the confidence and joy to create a home environment that feeds you and provides you a sanctuary that is unique to you!Here is a sneak peak into Kimberely’s Cape Home….
