Our Story

Cheryl and her husband Nigel owned their own Refurbishment and Design company in UK for over 15 yrs. Cheryl is a published author of several books and was a regular on national TV and radio as expert advisor for women on subjects of abuse. Her life story was published in 2003.
When they re-located to Florida in 2004 Nigel ran a successful painting and design business working with high end designers and home stagers. Cheryl continued to write, but found herself heading up and starting her own event company Tinkerbell Events. Here she created White on State, Venetian Ball, Sarasota Film Festival, New Years Eve Block Party, as well as many smaller events. Some of which today are still going.
Throughout various hurdles and moves across the world, Cheryl has maintained her love of painting furniture with Chalk Paint®by Annie Sloan and other mediums for many years, long before the popular paint arrived in USA.
Cheryl's love for interacting and teaching with people from all walks of life has led her to opening her shop Big White Goose Rustic Market. Here she can fulfill her love of people, teaching and painting as well as a way to unleash her creative outlook.
With her son Lee who works with her at the Big White Goose, together they have gone back to their familiar roots to bring to Canby the first street market- Junk Refunk.
Watch this space as next year, Cheryl, Lee have bigger things in store for all those that love Junk Refunking and reviving old energy of things gone by as well as helping you find your creative outlet.. Add to this, new exciting workshops you won't want to miss.
