Mrs Butler Unique Switchplates ~ The Perfect Gift for Someone with Electricity

In the 1990's, Lynne's eldest daughter, Lisa's new apartment was sadly devoid of personality and color. The switchplates were dirty, plastic eyesores. An idea formed in Lynne's mind. This was the spark that lit her creative fire.

An artist by nature, Lynne had been experimenting, using decoupage to cover various household objects. She realized switchplates would be the perfect place to direct her creativity and decorated some run-of-the-mill plates for her girls. The little gems were installed to the delight of family, friends & co-workers at Lisa's housewarming party. The praise and requests poured in. Like music to her ears, Lynne heard people asking the same question, “where can I buy these?”

That night, Lynne starting devising a business plan. The world, as she saw it, needed her to help brighten their walls. Who'd be interested in her Switchplates? Anyone who has electricity. Ah, a theme.

With the help of Lowell, her husband, her daughter Sheree & granddaughter, Melissa (Mel) – Mrs Butler Unique Switchplates slowly took shape. It was finally launched on-line. Lisa became the objective “tester” of each design, although the entire family gave input, suggestions & voiced their opinions.

The name "Mrs Butler" represents Lynne's facetious alter-ego, who’s married to the dreamy heart-throb, Scottish actor, Gerard Butler. Lowell, wonderful husband he is, bless his understanding heart.

Finally, our family business found its permanent home on Etsy. Looking back, thinking of the 100 designs in our original portfolio, Lynne naively believed she covered the entire variety of designs to suit her customer’s homes. Today, Mrs Butler has well over 1,200 unique designs.

For over a decade, the entire family worked together in the family business, stirred excitedly by new ways to make the ordinary extraordinary. Sadly, due to life's hardships, Lynne and Lowell had to leave the business. They handed the creative torch down to Sheree and Melissa. Lynne and Lowell still give their input and opinions. They continue as resources for Sheree, the new owner. They've trained her for years for the challenges she's facing.

Just a small business in a little home, Sheree has carved out small work spaces to cater to each part of the process - designing, printing, assembling and shipping orders. Sheree, who never considered herself artistic, has loved tapping into this aspect of herself.
