We caught up with Cheryl and Heather Morrill, the mother & daughter team that just joined as a new vendor at Grand Marketplace. They offered to share this short story about their business to help us get to know them a little better.
3 Dots & a Dash, Inc. opened its doors in December 2014 in an attempt to share our creativity and enthusiasm for bringing old treasures back to life. What once was an endlessly fun hobby for us has become our family business Always wanting to work together, the three dots (the 3 Morrill girls) & our DASH (Mr.Gray), decided to bring our own styles together and create a welcoming home furnishing store that embraces our love for unique décor.
