It feels SO GOOD to be picking back up with our meet the maker series this fall! First up on our schedule is Mindy Galluch from Kenzie’s Boutique based out of Lewis Center, Ohio! Mindy is the owner and designer at her chunky beaded jewelry business. Her daughter, Makenzie was the inspiration for starting this business. Initially Mindy was making headbands for her, and slowly started selling them, after about nine months, she transitioned to making necklaces and says she’s, “never looked back!”
At first, business was a little slow but over the years Mindy has gained a huge following on social media and now even hosts parties where she’ll bring the supplies and attendees can create their very own necklaces! She has two favorite parts of her business, 1) organizing - Mindy has thousands of beads and pendants ready to go at any given moment so keeping that all in check is key! 2) Seeing the final product on her customers is also a big highlight for her. She credits them for being “super awesome and loyal” and “keeping her on her toes for the next fads.”
Mindy works full time in addition to running her handmade business and says keeping up with life, her daughter, and work is sometimes hard but she wouldn’t trade it for a thing! We have had Kenzie’s Boutique products in our store since the beginning and love the insane variety of themes she is able to make/provide us with! You can stop in and shop her products in our store, or join her ready-to-ship group by clicking the “shop now” button below.
