By Mark R. Schreiber, CNNBusiness WriterThe idea of a handmade-goods store is something that I’ve seen a lot of people talk about, but this isn’t the first time it’s been suggested by someone else.
And it’s just that way.” “
We’ve got our own staff, our own store, and we’re not selling anything we don’t want to sell, like wood or handmade fabrics.
And it’s just that way.”
Wiesner started her local business after reading a story in the Charleston Daily Mail in 2014 about a handmade clothes company called The Hometown Boutique.
The story featured a couple who were trying to raise money for their daughter’s wedding, but couldn’t get her some of her wedding-related items.
Wiezer and her husband decided to start a business to help raise money and support the family.
They sold handmade clothes to local businesses and then donated them to local nonprofits, including the West Virginia-based West Virginia Children’s Home, which has been the recipient of some of Wiesers proceeds.
When I asked Wieser if she had ever tried to start her own business, she said she wasn’t sure.
Then I told her that I had tried to open a shop, and I’d done so, and it was not very good.
She explained that she and her family had gotten together to help out the charity and found out that it was more expensive than what she could pay in cash.
And so they took the money and they opened a handmade store.
So I went into the shop and there were handmade clothes on display.
You could see a woman in the store selling the clothes to a guy in a wheelchair and a girl selling the clothing to a kid in a diaper.
It’s kind of a different experience to be at a store, Wieserns says.
That store is still open and selling handmade clothes, but Wiesners hopes that her business will help other women to take ownership of their own handmade creations.
“There’s this idea that handmade goods are a commodity,” she says.
“I think the way I see it is that if you don’t own it, it’s not a handmade thing.
There are so many other things that people can make that are handmade.
And if you can have it and share it with others, you can create a community of people that will make a difference in the world.”
I love my job.
As Wiesninger says, “We love our jobs.
I love the people that are here.
I’m a lifelong shopper.
And I love being able to help people.
And my hope is that this is something you can do as well.”
