Unfurling Teri White of Swirlicious — Ladies Who Lunch


You have met Amanda McNeely and Cathie Hawkins McOrmond who are part of our working team for your Ladies Who Lunch date on June 6th. Here is another one of our members ready to put this shindig all together. When we have all the details next week a formal announcement will be made.

Anywhere she goes with her pop-up boutique on wheels, Teri White creates a unique environment. She treats her customers to what you can’t find locally at prices you can actually afford. Whether it be home or office trunk shows, or even fundraising opportunities–Teri created Swirlicious to meet the needs of the person who wants something special that is hand stamped.

Teri listens to what people want, and delivers products that women love. “It’s not all about me,” as she says, so her one-of-a-kind hand stamped pieces lets your imagination run wild. Her exceptional flair for design and attention to detail make each item as special as you.

As a designer in many aspects of her life, Teri became intrigued with finding unique items that would stand out in a crowd while being affordable and fun to wear. Rather than scooping up fast-fashion pieces that could fall apart in months, she offers quality product that will last for seasons.

As a bonus, shoppers local to the Ottawa Valley, have a chance to come and visit her home studio. Teri will personally be on hand to help customers style their choices of either jewelery, purses, hats, scarves and more. Swirlicious offers fashion and flair with an element of surprise.

Teri has been in business since 2006 originally on Etsy and a full online web site for the past 2 years. Her business is independently owned and operated (with a small staff of a husband & 2 boys to help out.) Swirlicious is currently open by appointment, so please contact her for your personal shopping experience.

Please see events and hours to find us out and about.

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
