Vendor Spotlight: Miller & Co.

 

Meet Devin and Jen, owners of Miller & Co. Wood Studio.

For these entrepreneurs, it was a passion for craftsmanship and an eye for quality design that created a winning combination.

Like many of London’s vendors, quality is determined as much by the people as by the product. Just talk to Devin Miller or Jen Rose and you’ll understand exactly what we mean. We asked them a few questions about what drives their passion and what advice they can give to any creative minds looking to strike out on their own — here’s what they said:

What is your most memorable moment?

Day one — when we realized people were into what we were making and nearly sold out everything we had. That feeling of "heck ya, here we go!" and the wild ride that has followed...

What advice would you give to someone just starting out?

Celebrate your little victories. Everyday, something is going to come up to challenge you and ultimately help you grow — and that is awesome, but also...hard! Fail fast, be kind to yourself, and stay on your path.

What’s your favourite part of being a local business?

The people we've met (London, let me tell ya — you are full of amazing, beautiful people!) and being able to share our passion for what we do with people who truly appreciate and support local. It keeps our hearts full and inspired.
