So we did it. We launched Midwest Supply Co. into the world! Who's "we" you ask? We're Ken & Lisa Roberts -- just your normal pair of stone cold weirdos, married with a couple of little girls that we're so thankful to have dominating our lives.
Ken owns a construction company with his dad in Tecumseh, Michigan (one of the most darling towns in our great state) and coaches high school football, and I own and operate a stationery & gift store in Ann Arbor called Rock Paper Scissors. We joke pretty regularly that (although we LOVE them), we're the anti Chip & Joanna Gaines. We love gangster rap, swearing, old school video games, good tequila, red wine, and anything other than ship lap. As of this moment, HGTV hasn't extended any sort of contract in our direction, though we can't imagine why.
For years, we've been working with designers, printers, and illustrators to create the items we wished we could find to bring to Rock Paper Scissors. We spent years talking about how it's called pop not soda and asking our friends if they were Michigangster enough (update, mooooost of them are, though the verdict is still out ok a few -- you know who you are).
With that, we're so excited to bring our fun, Michigan designed goods to your homes and into your lives, and can't wait to hear what you think about our first collection! Follow along on this blog to see the crazy Michigan shenanigans our ridiculous family & Michigangster friends get themselves into. We're certain you won't regret it!
