I am Ashley the owner of Rae Ray’s Decor and More. I also have my own business and product line Rae Ray's Custom Wood Crafts. My business was started almos 11 years ago when my husband was diagnosed for the second time with a brain tumor. The type of tumor he grows is rare and risky attaching itself to his brain stem. I lost my job after taking too much time off to travel to Cleveland Clinic to be with him and found us with a lack of income to support our family. We have a 10-year-old daughter Raegan, a 7-year-old son Liam and a 2-year-old daughter Kennedi. My husband, Will, built houses for a living and was ruled permanently disabled after the multiple surgeries and radiation treatments left him with a multitude of health problems. I began learning how to use all his tools and building things to sell on garage sale sites which led to church crafts shows, to farmers markets, to vintage markets and then my first store. I opened my first store in 2016 in Downtown Perrysburg. We moved to our new location in October of 2020 and have been blown away by the support from all of you! My parents are our biggest supporters and with my mom going into retirement and now becoming my full-time business partner it’s been very rewarding to share this with them as well! We owe another big thank you to my aunts and some amazing friends and staff who have helped us along the way!! We have been able to help so many more local vendors with the growth of their businesses which has been very rewarding. Thanks to all our customers, it means more to our family than what we could ever express!
