My name is Gary Legarski, At 48, I am the proud Owner and Founder of Dancing Bears Home & Gift, LLC …. I began my business in 1998 selling a wide array of collectible toys (namely the famed beanie babies) on eBay. During the next several years, I was introduced to the woven tapestry business after a close friend of mine suggested the idea (Thank You Ethel Mae!). After a successful launch of a small line of tapestry pillows and throws, it was evident that my customers truly loved and appreciated these beautiful, woven textiles. I furthered the business line completely into the tapestry & home decor business and phased out the toy line. In early 2008, I made another business expansion with the purchase of a 2800 sq. ft. warehouse/showroom facility (pictured above) to move the business operations from the basement of my house and storage rental units. In late 2008, I launched this website and continue to expand the product line. In June, 2013, I made another business expansion with the buyout of Delightfully Sisters in Virginia since my owner and long time friend, Ethel Mae, decided to retire. We also launched another website: LillyMadeline.com. This website was created to honor my mentor and mother, Lilly. My mom passed away in December 1995 but her heart and soul are with me forever! In addition, we are doing several road shows road shows throughout the Washington DC area to include shows at The Pentagon. My future goals hopefully will include the opening of another retail home & gift store in the Northern Virginia area. I truly thank everyone, every customer for your support of small business!
