Designer: Angela Muir
I’m a creative entrepreneur at heart and in the years since graduating from college I have bounced around between a lot of different ventures. When we first moved here I created custom wedding gowns and then after having a baby decided that it was a little too high stress for me. I then moved forward creating and selling totes and accessories made from recycled coffee bean sacks which are currently selling on Etsy. In 2012 I shipped out 900 totes and realized that turning my basement into a factory and myself (and husband and many friends) into a mass production factory worker was really not what I wanted to do with my life so I scaled back the green bean and the beginning of 2013 told myself I was just going to focus on being creative where it mattered, in my real everyday life.
