Moana's Unique Designs

I come from a military family, but have lived in Panama City now for over 20 years, so I guess this is home. After working as an RN for almost 30 years, I became ill with heart failure. I was confined to home and then had to have heart surgery. So my shop began during my recuperating phase. I had to find something to do or I was gonna go insane. Luv gardening, so my floral designs started to come to life.

While still working, people thought I looked like and had the sarcastic wit of "Mona" on the Tony Danza show where he played a housekeeper. Yes, that show is ancient. Yes, I'm an old fart. So I was nicknamed "Moana" and that's where my shop name originated.

I hope that when people see my shop items, they think of the beauty of nature, whimsy, quality, functionality and the uniqueness of my products. My advise to new shops is to be patient, build up a shop inventory, promote and support others. Build your circles and your social networking sites. Provide great customer service and quality products.
