Lisa Wilbur, Stafford’s Gallery and Retail Manager
In the year 2000, Lisa worked in a design center assisting Interior Designers. With her art and sales background, she realized selecting art to match a customer’s needs and style was extremely rewarding and found the right direction for her. Lisa continued as an art consultant in a fine art gallery selling international and local art.
Stafford’s Hospitality purchased the old ice warehouse building (formerly Longton Hall Antiques) in 2007. Lisa was hired in early 2008 to open and transform a gallery in the space. Stafford’s Gallery opened in June 2008.
Lisa individually selects Michigan artists, gifts, and accessories that are represented in this unique space. The goal is to provide variety for the guests in the way of style, size, medium, and price.
As our Retail Manager, Lisa also selects and purchases our gift shop merchandise at Stafford’s Bay View Inn, Crooked River Lodge and Perry Hotel.
