The Taffy Box began in 2007 in, well, and actual salt water taffy box I had brought home from a beach vacation. I filled it with jewelry items to sell to my co-workers, from time to time. One day, somebody asked me, "When are you going to bring in The Taffy Box again?" I realized, then, that I had a product that buyers were looking for and I started thinking about opening my own boutique. About a year later I was diagnosed with cancer and had to quit working because the treatments became too difficult on my immune system to continue my teaching job. I spent a year in chemo therapy treatments, traveling to appointments and focusing on my health. That was when I started The Taffy Box from my home where I now work full time in my basement art studio. Happily, I have been in remission 2 1/2 years and enjoy sharing my creativity and inspiration through personalized creations you see here. I am a mother to 4 grown children ages 18-24, and live with my husband in Virginia. For 25 years we moved around the globe with his military career and developed a travel bug after being stationed overseas 3 different times. We enjoy kayaking our region's many rivers as well as cooking, hiking and of course I love being able to work in my p.j.s! I volunteer as a certified counselor with a nation wide breast cancer organization which provides treatment information, education and emotional care to newly diagnosed women.
Because our items are crafted by hand, we ask that you allow at least 2 weeks for your order to process and up to 3 weeks during the holiday season. Thank you for understanding.
