As a bonus, Jeff has an AMAZINGLY decorated house that you can see in the pictures at the end of this post. Now you know who to ask if you need some decorating help!
Meet Jeff Dahlander
How did you end up in Ithaca?
Ithaca has everything I like! I have family in the area and Ithaca has lots of opportunities for work and a wonderful green and sustainable vibe.
How did you start working at Mimi’s?
I was a shopper before I became an employee. I stumbled upon Mimi’s Attic and quickly became addicted to shopping here. I was actually getting an oil change across the street at Diane’s Garage and they told me Mimi’s was the perfect place to kill some time.
Why do you love working here?
It’s fun and fast paced! The customers and coworkers are amazing. It doesn’t even feel like work despite the busy pace.
How would you describe your home decor style?
If you were a piece of Mimi’s furniture, what would you be?
Any piece that could be from a racy 1960s Hollywood film.
Anything else we should know about you?
I collect pottery, needle point pillows, and art featuring clowns.
