- Who Is Jolson?
Who Is Jolson?
I've had many folks ask why my business is named Jolson's Designs when my name is actually Troy Foster.
Well, I started selling embroidery designs on eBay in 2005. But I had set up my eBay account as Jolsonbear years before based on the photo of my then one-year-old Pug - Jolson. It was one of those rare Kodak moments. He had climbed up in the chair with the teddy bear to look out the window while I was folding clothes and fell off to sleep.
As my business grew and expanded on eBay I changed the name from Jolsonbear became Jolson's Designs For Machine Embroidery. In 2007 I started my website, www.jolsonsdesigns.com, and moved all of my eBay business over.
Jolson went to Doggie Heaven in January 2013 but will alway's be in my heart and will always be my eStore's namesake.
