By Judy & Tracy Sheridan
Joshua and Company is lovingly named after Judy’s grandson, Josh. It began in 2000 when Judy Sheridan became a merchant in the Harbour House Market with one cabinet of her original floral designs. Her one cabinet grew into greater and greater space within the market and expanded her offerings to include more and more home decor and gift ware.
Jane Everitt-Walker, who owned Home Therapy Design down the street, and Judy talked and decided to share the entire 2400 sq ft of retail space within Harbour House. Half of the store became Home Therapy Design and the other half Joshua and Company. Soon after they decided to merge their two styles and stores into one, Joshua and Company, and became full business partners.
Judy and Jane enjoyed many years together and Tracy Sheridan, Judy’s daughter, joined them in 2005 as their store manager. In 2009 Tracy bought out Jane’s interest in the store so she could return to Social Work and pursue her dream of offering Equine-Assisted Therapy to our region.
