Margie Peterson: Peterson’s Consign & Design/Margie Peterson Designs
Find the truly unexpected in design and consignment.
What is it about you that makes you groundbreaking?
I have an eye for quality, originality and a desire for the unexpected in design. My store is not your typical consignment store. I consign unique pieces from people who travel all over the world. Many of my customers have described their purchases as “treasures.”
What makes women so effective at business?
Passion! I believe it is essential to be passionate about what you do in order to be successful.
Are you doing anything special to nurture the next generation of female business leaders?
I encourage them to take risks. Step out of their comfort zone, after all what’s the worst that can happen? If you fail treat it as a learning experience and try it a different way the next time.
What groundbreaking services do you offer?
When I initially walk into a home that needs staging or I look at potential consignments for my store, my goal is to make that home stand apart. I do that by assessing the aesthetic of the home, then furnishing it accordingly. My consignments are selected and chosen very carefully. Nothing goes into my store or staged homes that I would not put into my own home.
