About Susan

Susan Storie – Mariposa Design

Susan graduated high school in her hometown of Perth, Ontario and then went on to receive a Diploma, Interior Design at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario.

Susan spent her 25+year career in Interior Design, Construction and Project Management working in Southwestern Ontario, Bermuda and Ottawa.

In 2012 Susan opened her bricks & mortar shoppe on Foster Street in Perth.  This cozy & friendly wee shoppe soon became a favourite place offering a combination of vintage, locally handmade and new items for home & cottage.

Mariposa Design expanded in 2016, when Susan purchased another local business and relocated to 32 Gore Street East in Perth.  The beautiful products from both businesses were brought together to create a destination shoppe and a delight to browse.

2020 marks Susan’s 8th year as a small business entrepreneur and the 8th Anniversary of Mariposa Design.
