Amanda Ficek has certainly inspired a whole lot of women over the years. She owns a company called “Mama’s Happy”. It’s a store full of refurbished, upcycled and incredibly unique pieces. You’ll find furniture, home accessories and even jewelry. Everything is made or re-done by a group of artists who inspire and empower each other.
The company started as an occasional shop in Mound back in 2010. Just two years later, Amanda was already expanding. Today, there are four stores.
Amanda credits her store’s success to her team and to Annie Sloan. Annie makes a chalk paint that is incredibly popular. When people heard Amanda was selling it, they would head in and instantly became fans of the stores.
Mama’s Happy also does workshops and special events. For more information, click here.
