“I went to work for the Schnarrs in 1974, and after 20 years of learning the business, purchased the store from my mentor W. A. (Bill) Schnarr in 1995.”
Carolyn was raised in a DIY household. From an early age she was encouraged to try everything from baking to soldering. These days she enjoys paper crafts, mixed media crafts, sewing, ceramics, mosaics, gardening, making things out of wood, home decor projects and upcycling found items into usable and decorative objects.
In the past Carolyn has worked in the retail, web design, and marketing fields. She now works part time at the Schnarr’s Ladue store as a cashier, helps with marketing efforts, writes her own blog and craft tutorials, and teaches craft classes while working on a Master’s Degree at Webster University. Carolyn’s father introduced her to hardware stores, his tools, and the “stuff stash” that every DIYer collects. It’s no surprise that time spent at Schnarr’s makes her giddy in the presence of things you can use to create! She still loves working on projects with her Dad and it’s a treat to make a joint trip to the hardware store!
Carolyn is a certified St. Louis and Missouri Master Gardener. She contributes articles to the “Garden Notes from Schnarr’s” newsletter and to the Schnarr’s Blog. Carolyn is excited for the opportunity to help Schnarr’s customers enrich their lives with creative and fun projects. She wants as many people as possible to experience the joy that DIY projects have brought to her life.

In Tim’s own words:
I have owned the business for 35 years. I consult, design, install and maintain many properties in the St. Louis area. Some of my more unusual projects have included a stone grotto and a rooftop garden! Two of my crew are Category Three ornamental tree and turf applicators.”
