"Shop Girls." Sarah + Keeli

You are probably wondering who will be managing the store when I am at the agency?  I want to introduce you to my fellow “shop girls”: Sarah and Keeli. Both artists, mothers and good friends…Come in and meet them!

” I am Sarah Steedman. Mother of two young girls. An artist, a crafter and a sculptor. I am also a passionate gardener and cook and have a weakness for good chocolate. Suzanna and I have been friends for a long time and shared many good meals together. I love Scandinavian design aesthetic, and will listen to any kind of music at all, although lately I’ve been re-visiting the 80’s pop of my Michigan youth. I am looking forward to working at the first brick and mortar Binth store!  For the past seven years I have worked as a stay at home mom, designing and selling stuffed animal toys under the name “Scrappynation.” My new line is called “Hushlings”-stuffed worry cloud toys for kids of all ages. Come in and check them out!  My goals here at Binth Studio + Store are to have fun, to laugh often and to work at making the store and studio a great space to visit.”

” My name is Keeli Mickus. I am a wife, mother of two, lover of apple pie and a design addict. I am a graphic designer by trade and before joining her at BINTH, Suzanna and I have worked on some major advertising campaigns together. I believe there is room for smart and artful design in the everyday. I believe in editing, editing and more editing. 

My favorite things right now are a whimsical cookie jar, irreverent wall plates, magnetic building blocks. Oh, and the dress that fits just right. Having spent half my life in Germany, I have an affinity for most things German. We try to speak German around my boys and here at the Studio. I am very excited about this new creative adventure called Binth Studio + Store. Stop by and visit. Bring the kids! ”
