Nancy Veldman is living a purposeful life through Magnolia House.
Veldman said her shop at Grand Boulevard has allowed her to meet different people, explore her musical side and promote the five books she has written.
“There comes a time in every woman’s life when you have to decide what to do beyond your career, beyond being a wife or a mother,” Veldman said. “We all have a deeper purpose in our life that will affect everyone and have a lasting effect.
“I found that purpose.”
Veldman, a native of Memphis, Tenn., opened her shop 20 years ago in Seagrove Beach and moved to Grand Boulevard nearly four years ago.
The home accessories store bursts with items in every nook, from the library filled with books to the shelves of pictures, collectibles and other dainty items for the home.
