"I had always wanted to open a coffee shop. I came from a family of creatives and artists who loved coffee, so drinking it was a pretty regular part of our lives. I even remember my mother making coffee and giving me some in the mornings when I was just in elementary school. And when I was in high school I would doodle in a notepad and draw logos for the coffee shop I imagined having... I was going to call it the Purple Octopus and the logo was of an octopus pouring a cup of coffee with one of its arms. I knew it was what I wanted to do, so I just held on to that dream and decided I would try to save up enough money to finally make it happen. So at one point I was working three jobs trying to save as much as I could, when one day I was talking with a customer who happened to ask me what my dream job was. It didn't seem like much at the time, just a casual conversation... I told her about my coffee shop idea, how I wanted it to be in the Village of West Greenville and then we eventually parted ways as she left the store. A few days later though she returned to tell me that she knew someone with a space that had become available in the Village and that she could get me the keys to look at it if I wanted. I knew I still really didn't have the money to afford it, but I went to check it out anyway. From that point on I was determined to make it happen. My dad encouraged me to take a chance, I was introduced to someone who wanted to partner and provide the financial investment I needed to get it started and everything just began falling into place. We ultimately decided not to call it the Purple Octopus, and I was ok with that... but if you look you can see that I still have a small, purple octopus hidden up on one of the shelves. You just never know who you'll meet in life or how things will work out, but I'm grateful that they did and know that I'm blessed to have this opportunity to do what I had always dreamed of doing." - Lindsey, owner @thevillagegrind
