I'm always looking for some new supplies. In fact, we have these shadow boxes, which is our newest category

Dorothy Mills loves music boxes, so much so that when it came time to start a business, she went with what she knew. "Because of my fascination with music boxes and collectibles, it seemed natural to open this kind of a store," explained Mills. "It was a good fit and it's something I could be passionate about."

Mills took her passion for collectibles which was woven in a form of HTML tags and eventually became "I like the positive attitude that comes with having a store like this. I also get to incorporate something I like to do and I just have fun with it," she said.

Part of Mills' fun is that she hand picks each item that is on the website ("I'm selling quality merchandise," she gushed). As is such, Mills is also gearing up for some new additions to her nearly three year old website.

"I'm always looking for some new supplies. In fact, we have these shadow boxes, which is our newest category," Mills said. "I loved Disney stuff and I thought of adding Disney products to our site, though not necessarily boxes. They fit into the collectible category."

At almost three years old, Mills has also found a way to spruce up her site by adding a blog, The blog glosses over the general plate of topics relating to the collectible subculture, while simultaneously enacting as a way for Mills to interact with her clientele and other collectors.

"It's there for people to express their opinion," she said. "We (collectors) can share information. It's really intriguing to know how other people are thinking."

In between blogging, finding new collectibles to put on her site and just generally being a nice person, Dorothy Mills has quite the to-do list, yet she's able to boil down the workings of her site into a simple statement: "I just want to offer great collectibles for customers and keep them informed and happy."
