Judy Bean opened a store in York Beach, Maine as a way to pay for college. This summer venture began a career. After a move to Ogunquit, and a change of focus from swimwear to clothing and accessories The Lazy Daisy was born.
When her sister Susie Bean Lemire and husband Doug sold their pizza/convenience store in Lincolnville Beach, Maine they moved to York with the enthusiasm for a different type of retail sales. Together they combined their entrepreneurial skills. They created The Daisy Trading Company in a small building on Route One in York, Maine, which previously held their mothers antique business. This quickly blossomed as their categories grew to furniture and lamps, home and garden décor, as well as whimsical signs and gifts for all occasions. A larger building and Doug’s active role became eminent as well as a new seasonal location in Ogunquit, also named The Daisy Trading Company.
Finally after many inquiries an ecommerce website arrived!
