Craft store opens on 400 block of Center
Jane's Front Door Decor is the newest business on Center street and the newest member of the Taft Chamber of Commerce.
It started as a hobby, then a small Etsy business operating out of her house that turned into a thriving online business and outgrew her living room, owner Jane White said, and now it's open at 420 1/2 Center St.
She was a judicial assistant at the Taft Court for 15 years who dabbled in crafts before she started selling items.
Her business started growing.
"It kind of exploded and I was able to leave my job and do this full time," she said at the ribbon cutting held recently at her shop."Then it outgrew my living room."
She was in the top 1,000 out of 1.9 million businesses operating online through the Etsy marketplace.
Jane's front Door Decor has items for people who like to make their own crafts and she also sells personalized items like wreaths, coffee mugs, mouse pads and custom-made metal signs and other items.
For door-it-yourselfers, she carries a wide supply of crafting materials.
Her brick-and-mortar business is only one facet of the business. She still maintains her online presence.
"We ship all over the world," she said.
