Located in the heart of downtown Frisco on Pecan Street, Brookielynn’s Bungalow is a venue for rent with two natural light photography studios, a 30-foot maker room and two local beauty businesses. All rentals come with the use of the bungalow’s hallway, porch and kitchen common areas.
“I started building a brand and business around me and what I wanted to do,” Calloway said, “and it just kind of became a passion.”
Calloway started her business at Frisco Mercantile after leaving a career in teaching in 2013. She was inspired by bloggers like Miss Mustard Seed, who was making videos about creative projects, she said.
“I thought, ‘I can just take life by the horns, and I can be happy like her, too,’” Calloway said.
Brookielynn’s Bungalow’s current 2,100-square-foot venue on Pecan Street opened in September 2018.
Supporting women entrepreneurs is a focus for Calloway, since she did not have women role models when Brookielynn’s Bungalow got off the ground, she said.
“That’s where I found that my passion[s] for teaching and guiding and exploring and being creative all come out,” Calloway said.
About 50 different women rent the space per month, she said, including two local beauty businesses, JCM Sugaring Salon and Simply Pearl Boutique Spa.
Moving forward, Calloway said she and her husband plan to open three commercial demonstration kitchens, called Brookielynn’s Kitchens, in the Patios at The Rail development on Main Street. The kitchens are expected to open in March, she said.
In the meantime, Calloway’s bungalow serves as a spot for families, business owners, crafters, company events and photographers, Calloway said.
Brookielynn’s Bungalow’s versatility makes it more than a crafting space, she said.
“This is my place to go big or go freaking home,” she said.
