Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittany Greenwood.
Brittany, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I started in this business 21 years ago with my mother running three consignment stores in Ft Myers Beach. I always knew I loved procuring and selling unique Florida furniture. Selling online just seemed to be the next step for me. I started selling online in 2017 and absolutely fell in love with that concept. My online customer base grew so much that it became a challenge to manage both.
Four years ago my husband suggested we buy a property with acreage to move the business onto . We searched for several years for the perfect property. In 2019 we found a 10-acre Old Florida farm with a barn. The perfect foundation to begin building my dream, a shop that is a one-of-a-kind destination.
I never would have imagined a small town girl from Kentucky’s dream would become what it is today.
Brittany’s Bamboo Barn was formed in May of this year . Brittany’s Bamboo Barn sells worldwide, and offers shopping by appointment only . I deal in exclusively Old Florida style unique pieces, and I am the happiest I have ever been.
Every piece I buy I absolutely love. I pour that love into every post and every piece.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I do not believe in struggles, only bumps in the road that make you stronger . Failure is only when you give up. This is an extremely challenging business ,but if you love what you do then it makes it worthwhile. The biggest challenge is always searching for those unique vintage pieces that will make you stand out. I travel all over to find those rare pieces .
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Brittany’s Bamboo Barn?
I specialize in vintage/antique Old Florida Bamboo/Rattan, with a mixture of unique pieces. There is a piece of my soul in every piece . I take pride in the satisfaction of my customers, and will go to great lengths to ensure this. Their happiness is what matters most to me. There is something for everyone here, no matter the budget.
Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
Happiness. If you do what you love you never work a day in your life.
