Michelle Bailey always wanted to start a business, but she wasn’t sure what. Although a salon had crossed her mind, she was once a hair stylist, she decided against it. Instead, she went into the fabric business, reports The Gadsden Times.
â€œSewing was my hobby,â€ Michelle says.
When she realized there was no place in Gadsden to get boutique fabric, she decided she had her business idea.
Her husband was supportive and told her to â€œgo for it.â€ He is a business owner himself.
Before opening Material Girls, Michelle was a stay-at-home mom.
â€œI really got into sewing with the kids,â€ she says.
Her son, Fisher, is 4 and her daughter, Gabby, is 2. She began making clothes for them.
Being the owner gives Michelle the freedom to bring her children to work, which she does one day a week. (Her mother-in-law also keeps them one day a week, and three days a week they attend day care.)
â€œI can bring them and feel like Iâ€™m not putting anyone out,â€ she says.
Her son and daughter enjoy it when customers bring children with them, and Michelle notes that the days Fisher and Gabby are there tend to be her busiest.
