When I was a child, my mother gave me a gold unicorn charm in one of my Easter eggs. That day began my love affair with unicorns and my search to find out all I could about them.
Later, I remember seeing an illustration of Noah’s Ark in the beginning pages of a child's bible and all the animals lining up to board. In that illustration was a beautiful unicorn. I exclaimed, "See mom, I told you they were real, they are in the bible.” I still can’t be convinced otherwise. And that belief has played a big part in shaping my story.
As I grew older, my search for unicorns and cool unicorn items continued. I knew they were out there, but I became frustrated having to scour every section of stores and the depths of the Internet to find them. So I thought, why not collect all of that great unicorn stuff and make it available in one location? There’s got to be other people like me, right?
Some may say I’m living in a dream world, and to that I say, “Yes. I am.” If my love of unicorns has taught me anything, it’s to believe anything is possible, and that just because you can’t see something, it doesn’t mean it’s not real.
And that’s how The Unicorn Store was born. A place for all of us believers. All of us that grew up loving unicorns and everything they stand for. And all of us who now have kids who are discovering that same sense of wonder.
This whole adventure is dedicated to my mentor and best friend, my grandmother. While she’s no longer on Earth, she’s still with me every day and her encouragement for me to follow through with my dreams lives on.
And thank you to my parents for all their support throughout the years.
