This weekend I stopped over to help a friend with her local company Michigan Wine Apparel. The owner and creator behind this fun company is the mom of one of my greatest friends. She’s the kind of person everyone loves– always welcoming us ladies into her home, sharing stories with her husband and leaving us all laughing and saying, “your mom is the coolest!” It’s exciting to watch someone so deserving and creative develop a business with such funky, yet classy products. As the summer ends, she is shifting products, adding new Craft Beer designs, resort wear, and updating logos and designs to her line-up. Already I’m planning a cute purchase to wear on our wedding day and rallying my girlfriends to get some gear for a friend’s upcoming bachelorette party.
I think part of the lure of her products is that they represent this amazing, strong culture of Michigan by bringing attention to our farmers and wine producers; spreading the good word of Michigan on what we wear to encourage more people to visit us Up North. We live in such an amazing place that it’s hard not to feel a sense of pride and want to share it wherever we go.
Have you been wine tasting in Michigan before? It’s worth a trip out here to experience it, that’s for sure.
**Michigan Wine Apparel is in the process of adding an on-line market place. I will be sure to include you once it’s up and running!
