Carol Loucks, a fiber artist by training and a retailer by desire, has been selling crafts from Willow Creek Gifts, located in the Digicare Building next to Maxís Place, for ten years. But the company she founded Carolsue Designs has been in business for over 30 years.

Loucks loves retail and is sure that once it gets into your blood itís there forever. She cut her teeth, so to speak, on stuffed animals when the Akron, Ohio born Loucks managed a large stuffed animal store in Houston, Texas for ten years in the 70ís and 80ís.

After a move to Plano, Texas she began selling designer Teddy Bears by the 100ís in Texas and Arizona. One of the projects she describes as the most fun was in a mall near New Orleans. The mall wanted her to design and create alligators six feet long in a window scene set on the Louisiana Bayou. A huge Santa Bear dressed in an old fashion European costume was in a deep south fishing boat on the Bayou with the alligators cascading around him.
