Debbie and the Business
(kinda sounds like a 60′s rock group!)
Yes there really is a Debbie Lyn! Debbie Owens that is, Lyn is her middle name. Debbie Lyn’s Costumes (also misspelled as: Debbie Lyns, Debby Lyn’s, Debby Lynn’s, Debby Lynns, Debby Lyns, Debie Lyn’s, Debie Lynn’s, Debie Lynns, Debi Lyn’s and – well, you get the idea…), started from meager beginnings in Debbie’s garage. Theater costuming was her specialty. As her talents and subsequent demand increased, Debbie decided to take the big plunge and in 1993, opened a year round sales and rental costume store. As they say, the rest is history and now it’s more than just a costume store.
It actually began as a dream that’s turned into a love and passion for costuming people. Debbie is described as outgoing, gregarious, affable, giving and generous by people that know her. If you combine that with her degree in Religion and Philosophy from Illinois College, the years of experience as accounting supervisor at GTE (no ages!), and her ongoing involvement in business, civic and charitable activities, you have one outstanding individual.
As president of the National Costumers Association, Debbie is known both nationally and locally in the costuming world. The City of Sunnyvale awarded Debbie the Outstanding Business Person of the Year award in 2001. Debbie is past Chairman of the Board and a current board member of the Sunnyvale Chamber of Commerce and is currently active in the Mountain View, Sunnyvale and Santa Clara Chambers of Commerce. She also serves on the Board of Directors of Sunnyvale Community Services. The enthusiasm and energy Debbie creates is incredibly infectious as you will find when you deal with her, the employees or any of her colleagues. Actions speak louder than words, and as a business, everyone at Debbie Lyn’s is motivated to giving and serving you, the customer and valued person, the best!
