My Buzz is to create 'miscellaneous' bespoke and personalised Handmade Gifts for Home & Hound!
My name is Helen Rogers and I live and work in Manchester as a Self Employed Designer Maker. After Graduating with a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art: Painting & Photography in 1995, I began a career in the Art Education Departments for High Schools & Colleges within Manchester City Council. But after a prolonged serious illness meant I was no longer able to maintain a conventional job I started MisHelenEous in June 2013.
Inspiration comes from various sources including my surroundings, nature and our dog. Hence the miscellaneous nature of the items I make and the idea behind my business name.
Mainly an online business I do attend some Fairs and Events in the Manchester area and am a member of the Manchester Makers Collective. Also as an official Made In Britain member you can trust that all my work is designed, created and produced by me and carries the MIB Marque. In my first 4 years of trading I have shipped goods to 34 different countries.
I also undertake bespoke, custom orders and small trade orders to the pet product industry so if you have any specific requests please contact me.
The items I make are not mass produced. I am the sole designer and maker and all work under MisHelenEous is registered with the UK Copyright Service UKCS. All Rights Reserved. Copyright 2013 Helen Rogers.
Be open minded, flexible, adaptable and approachable. And try to say Yes more than you say No.
Always go the extra mile with customer service and do what people don't expect so they remember you and come back time and again.
Reputation takes a long time to build, keep going!
