History

My Cousin's Closet was founded in 1990 by Sharon Meyer and her cousin, Chris Callahan.  Long before "green" and "reduce, reuse, recycle" were part of our daily lexicon, these smart ladies knew that possessions once loved sometimes needed a second chance.  Pink flyers went out all over town, and a tradition was born.  They opened the store with a Friday night sale in October, and launched an Uptown tradition.  

The store is currently owned by Jody Czako, a longtime fan and avid bargain shopper.  Over the years, the store has changed and evolved with time.  Styles and colors come and go, but the nature of resale shopping remains the same.  Customers love the search for new-to-you treasures, great prices, and decorating inspiration.

Recently the store name was changed to "My Cousin's Cottage".  We wanted to emphasize our commitment to providing Westerville and surrounding communities with a first class resale shopping experience that focused on your home.  It's about more than just closets full of unused junk - it's a new way to look at decorating with possessions that are still current, modern, and beautiful to look at.  The name might be slightly different, but the ideas started by founder Sharon are still the same.
