Through the technology of my handy FLIP video camera, I do short interviews with a different small business owners in or around McKinney.
Just up the road a piece from McKinney, Leslie Luscombe’s roots in Anna are about as old Collin County itself. This is where she would spend many a summer and where her Grandmother taught her the art of making, among other things, jellies. Today Luscombe Farm Specialty Foods provides some of the tastiest jellies in this part of the country.
Even though Leslie has won many awards, and her jellies can be found in over 100 locations in Texas and surrounding states, you can still find her working the table at the McKinney Farmer’s Market every Saturday. Stop by and visit. Chances are you’ll leave with at least one jar but wish you had bought several.
If you think you have a story to tell send me an email at email@example.com and tell me why you should be the focus of Stuart J’s Lens.
Here are some of the rules:
● Your business does not need to be an advertiser on TownSquareBuzz.com. (Although if you are reading this, you can already appreciate that TSB is the place to go to reach thousands of people like yourself who are interested in the goings-on in McKinney.)
● The objective is to be serious about small business in and around McKinney but in a fun way. If not full of personality, (fun, charming, quirky….), you will not make the cut. (Note: I stole that line from “Chopped”!)
● This personality could stem from what drove you to a particular business, what your strangest/funniest business experience has been or what we “really need to know” that we probably would not have guessed. Boring, staid, “we make widgets and want people to come buy those widgets” stories will not be featured.
● Did I mention you don’t have to pay to play? The cost of entry is simply a story the folks in McKinney would enjoy hearing.
Here is Leslie’s story. Just click on the little screen under the word “Video” below to get started and learn all about it.
