The Market was founded in 2018 by Kathy Duggan. After earning degrees in both Merchandising/Interior design and Elementary Education, she put her career on hold when her first child arrived. Kathy’s main focus was her family and children as a stay at home mom for 21 years. During those years she enjoyed giving back to the community by volunteering her time in her children’s classrooms, with their sports teams and the school's athletic booster club. She also found time to do a little design work on the side.
Once her daughter and son went off to college, and with a husband that travels frequently, she decided to pursue her dream of owning a home decor and gift shop. Kathy’s father, who passed away a few years ago, was a life-long active community volunteer. He was the inspiration for her to continue giving back to the community and donate to local charities along with the business the wanted to pursue. That is how The Market came to be. Kathy feels very strongly that supporting the local community is not only the right thing to do, but its the most appropriate way to honor her dad and everything he believed in.
