About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Tampa, Florida
Introduction After 16 years with a national advertising agency and the corporate environment, I decided I had enough with traveling and wanted to give retirement a try. Being the A-type personality that I am, that did not last for a minute. I also noticed a yearning to be more creative so I started creating with silk flowers in my garage. As my interest grew and word got out I quickly ran out of space PLUS my husband needed the golf cart space back. So I rented 500 square foot warehouse with a bench from Home Depot and continued with my “hobby”. Well… now it is 9 years later and Robyn Story Designs and Boutique occupies an 8000 square foot showroom and has expanded to include home accessories, art, lighting, antiques and a full design studio. My passions and desires for creativity just continue to flourish, so does my need to collect (thank goodness I have a store!!). I love sharing my finds with my customers and I’m incredibly excited to be a stockist for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It’s going to be a wild ride and I’m glad to be a part of it and happy you are as well. Thank you.
Interests My interests are anything and everything that make my store interesting! I love to discover amazing finds at antique stores and estate sales. I love being creative and using my hands and imagination to make something special out of something mundane.
Favorite Music We play music at our store everyday. There are times I love R&B, Pop music, Classic Rock or some fun Salsa!! Whatever we're all in the mood for!
Favorite Books Annie Sloan's "Creating the French Look" and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the look, feel and smell of vintage books, especially anything French!
