On this edition of the show is Mark & Tory Orlando of Jaunt: Well-Traveled Goods. Mark & Tory bring us through their hip new store located in downtown Arlington Heights. I can already feel the buzz around town waiting for the big grand opening in the beginning of April. The Orlando’s bring us on their journey from Washington D.C. to Chicagoland. With Tory Packed up with their four kids and Mark driving the truck they headed out west to start their new life.
Jaunt is more than a furniture store, it is a way of life for the Orlando’s. The store is bringing urban living to the suburbs, which so many people crave today. With people moving from Chicago out to the burbs, Mark & Tory felt their concept would be a welcomed edition. They were spot on. What former city dwellers look for in suburban shops is hard to find. Not anymore, because handmade pieces and fine craftsmanship is right here at Jaunt: Well-Traveled Goods.
So many of us struggle with home decor. The Orlando’s can help solve that problem without breaking the bank. They believe homeowners can start with a statement piece for a single room. Building around that piece is something that can be done over time. Tory believes if you bring balance to your home with warmth and color, your house will become a HOME.
For all the parents out there Jaunt has a HUGE designated kid zone in the store. Filled with toys and a chalk board, moms & dads don’t have to worry about little Johnny breaking anything in the showroom. So make sure you stop by to check this place out.
I also highly recommend all you listeners go to Jaunts website to read their blog. The Orlando’s are phenomenal story tellers. Not only about their personal journey, but about all the pieces of furniture in their store. They believe each handmade piece of craftsmanship has it’s own story.
I believe Arlington Heights provides the perfect place for Mark & Tory Orlando to start their business. We at Arlington-Prospect Advice Givers wish you much success in your new venture. Our community is lucky to have you.
