The Lemonade Shop is currently run out of Castle Rock, CO by Heather Rhoads. That's me. I say currently because I am a Chicago girl at heart and miss the city so much so I am sure there is a move to be had at some point. I fell in love with color at New Trier High School in Winnetka, IL where they had an amazing art department and after that I attended a private design school in Chicago where I left with honors. There could be a long drawn out story about how I got started dyeing yarn but it's really simple, I love color, I love yarn and I love knitting. I also love cake, but I'll save that for another time.
My husband Christopher works for the shop full time so we are a true family run business. We met at work so we are used to working together, a question that we get asked all the time. We've been at this for years and we haven't killed each other yet, so lets call that a win! Our daughter Grace is in High School. She is one smart cookie, but she is also is a teenager so yeah, good times.
It's not very riveting, but it's the way I like it and I wouldn't change it for the world.
The Lemonade Shop only collaborates with shops and designers that support POC and LBGTQ communities.Thank you for supporting our shop!
