Mark and Pat Sellergren, Owners
Mark and I first fled an Iowa winter for the Caribbean in 1980 with a trip to Jamaica. It rained a good deal of the time we were there but we didn’t care—rain did not require shoveling. We lay in the sun like a couple of soporific lizards, exclaimed how wonderful it felt to be warm all the way through, and vowed that someday we would live on an island where the summer was year-round.
Flash forward through several other Caribbean holidays and owning for a few years a place on Bequia in the Grenadines. We were looking again for our perfect island. Some Iowa friends suggested St. Croix.
You know that feeling you get when you just KNOW you’re home? That was how we felt about St. Croix the minute we stepped off the plane in 2002. We still feel that way.
Teri Anderholm, Store Manager
Sweet Lime's store manager, Teri, joined in 2017. She loves working with customers to create beautiful, comfortable homes and outdoor spaces.
Teri is our hospitality whiz, as she and husband Jeff saved one of Maine's oldest historic inns from the wrecking ball, restoring and creating one of the finest small luxury inns in New England. Teri and Jeff moved to St. Croix in 2012 after honing careers in Boston and Bar Harbor.
During their 2012 move to Christiansted, Hurricane Sandy inundated their shipping container resulting in a total loss of their belongings. Thank goodness for insurance and Sweet Lime Furnishings which was there to help them make a fresh start to furnish their island home.
Teri has a business degree from Boston College and a culinary diploma from the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts. She loves yoga, swimming, and a Lime & Coconut once a week, whether she needs it or not.
