Name: Michelle Hans
Business name: MichelleRenee Designs
Job title: Owner
Location: Lake Bluff
How did the business come to be?
I began sewing again when I left the corporate world to take care of my children. I absolutely love fabric and mixing fabrics. Soon, I began designing handbags and totes. My friends loved them and encouraged me to sell them. Here I am five years later. It's a great business I can manage while the kids are in school.
What is your business best known for?
How did you choose the area you did for your business?
Lake Bluff and Lake Forest is the perfect place to start a business. People are SO supportive.
What is something most people don’t know about your business?
I design every item and until a few weeks ago made every piece. I've gotten big enough, that I now outsource the sewing of my totes. They are sewn in Cicero, IL.
Does your business offer a special deals card or program?
Not at this time. I have a newsletter where I talk about promotions. People can register for it on my website. I also list promotions on Facebook.
