Greetings! As I write this, we are in the middle of the COVID-19 quarantine. This company, Josephine + Mim, is located in Michigan. We, like many states, are hopefully nearing the end of our Stay Home, Stay Safe orders. What will our new normal look like? That is to be determined. What I do know however, is that you have spent a lot of time at home these days, as have my husband and I.
This particular post is meant to give you a broad overview of our company, our beginnings and our goal as a small business. The current intention is not to be a traditional “blog”, but a way to keep in touch with our customers.
Josephine + Mim was founded in 2015 as a hobby and creative outlet for me, Christine; founder and President. It quickly became a part-time business and now, I see this as an opportunity to work on growing the business full-time.
I am a natural homebody, with a love of creating and decorating. I enjoy creating an environment that is cozy, casual and tells a story. My mission is to help you create a home environment you love. Where the physical items are things you love; collected over time, new and old, but in the end they become part of your story.
So far, most of my offerings have been vintage items and items I’ve made, mainly pillows. I’m proud to be a 5-star seller on Etsy and my products have been available for sale in a few stores and merchant markets in the West Michigan area. I’m excited to now be able to expand my current offerings, thorough my own standalone online store, to include that of carefully sourced made goods from USA makers and quality goods from trade partners.
