The family was planning to open before the pandemic hit, and they leased the space on Feb. 25, 2020. They’ve been sitting on the space since, waiting to open the shop. Meanwhile, Roth has been using the space for her other job, teaching contractors their required 16-hour class for Oregon contractor’s licenses.
The name “Christmas in Vantucky” came after much brainstorming from the family members.
“We were trying to come up with a name, but nothing gave us that feeling,” said Roth. “Brandon said, ‘How about Christmas in Vantucky?’ It was perfect. It’s the warmth. It’s the home we know. We knew immediately it was the right name.”
