Business Name: Ann Marie Co Website: N/A Established: 2022 Questions answered by: Jaime and Kristyn
Can you please fully explain your business or product line?
Our products include but aren’t limited to hair accessories, earrings, clothing, purses, wine glasses, and tumblers.
With the Winnipeg local maker community continuing to grow, what is the most important thing you’d like potential customers of your company to know?
We are just two sisters/mamas that love to make all the things. What sets us apart from other businesses like ours is that one of us is an extremely talented seamstress.
One item you will always see on our Instagram page and on market tables are handmade purses that you would think were purchased from a store! The quality of the purses is phenomenal and each one is made with love.
What inspired you to start your business?
Covid really gave us downtime to find our creative side that we didn’t know we had.
What was the biggest struggle you’ve had to overcome?
The biggest struggle we have is trying to be unique to set us apart from other businesses in the same niche.
What has been your biggest success as a maker?
Getting accepted into markets to showcase the talent we have between us. Also, the numerous custom orders that we receive monthly.
Do you have any advice that you would pass on to someone hoping to start up their own business or product line?
Patience. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Put yourself out there every day and don’t compare your business to others.
Please share any upcoming events as well as the best place(s) for people to purchase your product!
We will be available at various Christmas markets throughout the holiday season. Watch our Instagram for dates and times! Custom orders and purchases can also be done through Instagram.
