Tory and Ashley, a couple of Wisconsinites in the Florida panhandle who thought Pioneering, Cargo Ship witnessing, and Cart Work wasn't busy enough....
So in 2015, Ashley embarked on this wonderful (sometimes stressful) and always love driven work of scripture based jewelry and accessories. From humble beginnings as “The Bloom Emporium” (Ashley's lovely plant drawing pendants) quickly turned into what “Gingers Five and Dime” is today. We have experienced joy, tears
( of all kinds), but most of all encouragement being able to share our handcrafted goods with our worldwide brotherhood.
Ashley is the creative mind and constant thinker of our shop. Her eyes are constantly on the lookout for inspiration wherever we are. She gets that look and you know she is creating something wonderful. Although its not always easy with a auto immune disease, She carries on putting love into every aspect of her work. She also is hoarding plants in her spare time.
Tory is our resident mug maker, postcard poet, and doer of all paperwork. He also is busy pioneering with Ashley, and shepherding the congregation. Yet somehow he finds time to golf... he says it helps him do the other stuff better? The dad joke teller of the shop, printing department, and jack of all trades (according to him) master of none (according to everyone else).
Amber is our communication specialist (aka she answers your messages) and resident Texan. When your order is being shipped by Amber, it is with love, dancing, and a lot of singing! She and her husband regular pioneer together and are learning Vietnamese!
Izzy keeps us laughing with her great impressions. She loves to ship big orders, something that literally saves the day! Izzy is a former dance teacher (we are hoping she will teach amber some moves.) She also works hard in the regular pioneer work.
From our state of the art facilities (our little barn in the backyard) to our brothers and sisters, we hope you are encouraged and feel the love!
Tory, Ashley, Amber, Izzy, and Sam
