Q&A with Local Companies: Courtney Scantlin at Cedar and Twine

245 Placerville Drive, Placerville,

Services or products you offer: We sell items made by women, vintage goodies, and upcycled furniture.

What you enjoy most about your profession: Gifts are my love language, so I enjoy helping customers find just the right thing for all the special people in their lives. Vintage has been a passion of mine for years, so hunting for treasures is also a fun part of the job.

Fun facts about your company: We started online during the pandemic to focus on female makers who were at home with their kids and feeling overwhelmed. There were so many businesses closing, and we wanted to provide beautifully curated items, amazing customer service, and special packaging to add joy into people's lives. Each year we choose a local charity to donate a portion of all proceeds to; currently, it's Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Sierra.

Customer service is: The most important thing when owning a business. I take a special interest in my customers—they become friends and sometimes come in just to chat.

Most memorable experience as an entrepreneur: Since Cedar and Twine started online, opening my brick and mortar last year has been the highlight. Looking back at the shop’s humble beginnings is super exciting—what a difference a year makes.

Favorite food: Mexican or Greek.

Favorite local restaurant: Sienna.

Last big purchase: A travel trailer to go on adventures with my husband.

Favorite small business: Thrifted. On Main in Placerville! The amazing ladies who own it have an eye for the coolest vintage fashion; you can’t go in there without wanting to buy something.

When not working, you can be found: Thrifting or hanging out with family and friends.

You love living here, because: I’m from Southern California, so living and having my shop in El Dorado County means small-town vibes where people want to know you and support small businesses, which I absolutely love.
