HOW WE GOT OUR NAME

OAK SHORE? 

YEP! OAK SHORE.

I STARTED THIS BUSINESS ON A WHIM AND HAD OTHER PLANS THAT INCLUDED MORE WOOD WORKING WHEN I STARTED, BUT THERE IS STILL MEANING BEHIND THE NAME I SWEAR!

. I HAD A NICE LONG TRANSITION PLAN OUT OF MY PREVIOUS JOB AND INTO THIS SPACE, BUT THAT DIDNT HAPPEN...

I KIND OF QUIT MY PREVIOUS JOB ON THE SPOT...OOPS!

SO I HAD TO JUMP INTO THIS FULL TIME BEFORE I WAS REALLY READY AND HAD A REAL PLAN IN PLACE. I HAVE ENDED DOING DIFFERENT THINGS THAN ORIGINALLY PLANNED- WHICH WAS A LOT MORE WOOD WORKING HENCE THE WOOD MENTIONED IN THE NAME. AND AS I LEARNED MY NEW TOOLS I LEARNED I LOVED MAKING OTHER THINGS.

OKAY NOW TO THE NAME ITSELF- OAK IS A REFERENCE TO MY HOME STATE OF KENTUCKY! THE OAKS (THE DAY BEFORE THE KENTUCKY DERBY) IS ACTUALLY MY PREFERRED DRINK- I DONT LIKE MINT JULIPS THOUGH I CAN MAKE THEM WELL! I PREFER THE DRINK OF THE OAKS- THE LILY. 

AND SHORE IS A REFERENCE TO OUR CURRENT HOME OF VIRGINIA BEACH. A LOT OF MY FAVORITE THINGS HAVE HAPPENED AT THE BEACH- ITS WHERE I MET MY HUSBAND, MY DOG RILEYS FIRST OUTING, WHERE WE BOUGHT OUR FIRST HOME TOGETHER AND WHERE WE LIVE NOW!

 

SO OAK SHORE IS A PART OF MY PAST AND A PART OF MY NOW. IT REPRESENTS A JOURNEY AND SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS!  

ABOUT US

Hi everyone! My name is Baylie the founder, owner, operator, designer, etc. of Oak Shore Collective! 

I have always had a passion for creating, but realized the need to slow down during the pandemic. I realized I wanted more time with my family and to do other things I love. My pervious career field was pretty demanding during before and after my actual work hours. I wasn't able to speak openly working in a small southern town and because of this I wasn't able to really be myself and that took such a huge mental toll. 

So here we are at Oak Shore!

A space where I get to truly be me and hopefully where you can be you! One of my biggest goals is to make everyone feel included and accepted just as they are. I hope you can see that reflected through myself and what I create!
