What is our story? First and foremost, we're husband and wife. Many years after high school, 26 to be exact, we started dating and have been dating ever since. We currently have four dogs, Nola-AKA Goober, Lulu, Cooter/Jim Bob Cooter Brown, and Charli. Jim Bob Cooter is an NFL coach. I fell in love with that name. Don't you think it's fun to say? Jim Bob Cooter. To make it flow, I just HAD to add Brown. So, Jim Bob Cooter Brown it was. Neither of us have kids so these are our fur babies.
I'm (Lysa) a Texas school district administrator overseeing after school programs. I have been so extremely lucky to get to do what I love to do and work with Uh-mazing people! I began my educational career in 1993 and have had some great times and unforgettable kiddos!
My husband manages the store during the day, which is perfect for him. That man never meets a stranger! I'm not kidding. I don't care the age.....he IS going to communicate with anyone, one way or the other. It's a very endearing quality he holds.
It all started by us going to flea markets and just walking around. It is one of our favorite things to do. I was always looking for something for our home and he was always checking out anything pertaining to sports and bass fishing. One day we thought, we should have a booth! So, we did. He sold sporting goods and I sold home goods.
So, there are two reasons for our name A House Divided. The first because he is a die hard New Orleans Saints fan and I'm a Dallas Cowboy Fan For Life. Couple that with his sporting goods and my home decor, and you have, A House Divided. We did so well at the flea market, we opened our own brick and mortar and started selling online.
As they say, the rest is history.....or chaos. I'll let you choose as you read more about us in future. it's still a toss up.
