Laissez Faire & Company started on a completely different premise than what is has become. I had a large vacant retail space that was not renting, thanks to the economy. My friend said, “rent spaces out to vendors”. So, in May 2011, I launched a Grand Opening of an Entreprenuer’s Emporium hosting all types of Vendors selling their wares the 3rd weekend of every month. It was very successful. But immediately it was evident that the Vintage Furniture was a huge draw. So after just 3 Entrepreneur’s Emporium weekends, I changed everything.
We Opened July 15, 2011 to Vintage Painted Furniture Vendors, 7 Days a week along side Our Sister Store, Shamelessly Simple Gift Boutique. It grew by leaps and bounds in such a short period of time. We merged with our sister store and recreated a whole new look and feel. Then when we added the Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan to our Store, it has just been AMAZING! This New Venture has truly been a Family Affair!
Four and a half years later it’s hard to believe the difference. We now host just 5 Exclusive Original vendors that are nothing short of amazing. My husband, Jamie Johnson, paints all the Furniture for the Laissez Faire. He also does custom painting for your existing pieces. He can be contacted at 410.299.2573.
We opened a second location in south Towson in late March. It is located at 6907 York Road Baltimore, Maryland 21212. We are at the Corner of Register Ave. & York Rd.. We are adjacent to The Lily Pad of Towson children’s consignment store.
