DENTON- Rose Costumes has been in business in the city of Denton for 45 years but the Covid-19 pandemic has taken its toll on the business.
Tiffany Fitzsimmons, an art teacher at Denton Guyer High School, made it her mission to try and save this business.
“I tried to think of a way that I could make money over a period of time, something that would not only help right now but continue to help. So that’s when the coloring book idea came about.”
Fitzsimmons students were immediately on board and so was the owner of Rose Costumes, Annemarie Aldrich.
Aldrich said, “When I first heard about it, I thought it was a cool idea, but that’s a lot of work, you know? And I said we’d love to be a part of it, and they went ahead and got to work.”
The coloring book contains a total of 28 pages that are colorable and are only $5.
Fitzsimmons most importantly cares about the impact this has had on her students and the community.
“I just hope kids walk away with how good it feels to help people, and to help your own community, to support local business. Those things are important, that’s what makes Denton such a beautiful place and this town is funky and cool, and we need to preserve that and help keep these places alive that are just Denton-owned businesses.”
