In Iowa, hobbies and crafts are tools to keep one busy when there is not much going on... especially in the winter. Also having a love of wine helps pass the time too. I started jeenoVINO in November 2010, hoping to find another thing that I would soon love to do and that would also take interest of others.
The name of my store comes from a nickname that my family has given me. My niece as a toddler couldn't pronounce my real name, Jen, and called me Jee (like the letter G). The name has stuck and my family continues to call me Jee after 8 years.
The "no" section of the store name comes from my twin nephews. Whenever I tease them, they reply "no, no, jee."
And lastly, VINO, of course, is Italian for wine which coincidentally rhymes with jeeno. When I first came up with the store name...it was too good…
