Interview with Mich from Picture Perfect Props by Mich
Hello Mich! I’m so happy to have you here! Congratulations on your new store! I’d love to start your interview with you telling us a little about yourself.
I am a Mom of 4 beautiful daughters , 1 of whom I did not not give birth to as she is my step daughter, but I have chose to love her like one of my own. My children are all grown and out on their own which allows me to dedicate all my time to my business, which is my new baby.
Tell us about your journey, your new store and what sorts of items you carry.
My journey started in August of 2010 and started with a party in the basement of my home with friends & family introducing them to my new business adventure. From there I was at the St Catharines fleamarket for almost 2 years. I did a few events and last fall decided it was time to open a store to be more available for my customers and to be able to offer them more. Since opening the store I have also brought in a few local ladies creations as well. There is a lot of great talent in the area. I sell a variety of children’s items as well as photography props. (tutus, headbands , hats & so much more).
I always see fun and exciting items! What is your new fave thing to make?
My newest items would have to be the tutu dresses , my fans send me lots of great ideas from Elmo to Jolly Holiday and even Sponge Bob and I love the challenges. My featherpad headbands are also one of my favs.
What is some of the best advice that you have received and how has it affected your business?
The best advice I have received is never forget where you started and to always put your customers first and I am a firm believer that to keep a successful business, customer service should be number 1 and to always give back to the community and never forget that if it wasn’t for my customers , I would not be where I am today and for that I am very thankful .
Thank you so much Mich for the fantastic interview and beautiful props I’ve used over the years! Make sure you head over to Mich’s facebook page to view some of her gorgeous work. Or better yet, go visit her new store to also view the beautiful work of Crochet by Rae and Handmade by Amy.
