Jill Terrill

Chief Creativity Evangelist/ Owner of Joy & Co.

Jill Terrill | Joy & Co. | Crafts, Gifts & Art Supplies | Grand Marais, MNOur somewhat fearless leader, Jill Terrill, has been a maker as long as she can remember. Her Grandma Ella taught her to see beauty in the little things and she hasn’t stopped looking and seeing it yet. Her mom, Cara, lead the way as a woman entrepreneur. Jill figured out a way to mesh the two into Joy & Co. She works hard each day to give people tools and permission to follow their creative journey. There is a “Maker” in each of us “and we all have things to say."

Halle was born and raised in Hovland, MN just northeast of Grand Marais. She is a creative, accomplished maker and is known in the area for the toys, gifts and Halloween costumes she creates seemingly from thin air.  This retail overlord has only been at Joy & Company since 2019, but is the key to your happy experience once you go though the small door into the big store.
