In the 1970’s, a young mother, Beverly Thumann wanted to spend as much time with her children as possible. As a way to spend more time with her little kids, she would travel to home decorating shows inside of peoples homes to decorate and set up floral arrangements.
As her floral arrangements took off, she would bring more and more to each show to provide arrangements for customers. As a family, Beverly and her children would travel and bring these arrangements all over Iowa and Illinois. As business started to pick up even more, she eventually partnered with consignment shops to start selling merchandise and arrangements locally. This would be the early days of what would become Just Because Gifts & Home Accessories.
