I have always loved to build things and my wife loves to decorate and be creative. One year for Christmas I decided to build my wife a wall shelf with mirrors in it. At the time I had zero tools to do such a thing so I had to borrow tools. But I thought my wife would like the shelf and it would be a great hand-made gift.

I was excited and skeptical at the same time. We made all sorts of things for the show. And aside from a break down on our way to Cody we had a great time and did very well at the show. A few months after the show we started to sale our items out of a boutique in Pocatello. This is when we came up with the name "Selfish By Design" How you ask? Well it was my wife that thought of the name. She made the observation that everything we were making was because we liked it and would want it for ourselves. And so our motivation was kind of selfish in a way. Thus the things we made and/or "designed" were for our "selfish" desires. And that is how we got started and why we decided to call our store Selfish By Design.
