In 2007, Lauren Dolinsky left her marketing position at LePorte Modern Doors to focus full-time on her true passion: botanical arranging. She moved to Austin, Texas, and founded LD Designs, a sustainable design store specializing in modern botanical design. The following year she made a lifelong dream of owning an Airstream trailer come true by purchasing one used and renovating it to house her budding business. We spoke with Dolinsky about trailer park retail, the success of succulents, and why Austin is a great place to be an entrepreneur.
