“Nothing that you need. Everything that you want,” Mimi & Tracy smile while describing their business. Everything here is far from typical. Just walking into Asher & Bailey evokes a sense of funk and happiness. From creating original furniture, belts and bags, to displaying work by local artisans, to future wholesaling, the vision for Asher & Bailey is constantly growing. Expect to find something inside that will make you smile.
She was drawn to the unusual tools of the trade, and sought out upholstery know-how from her best friend's father - a textile master. As she learned and perfected her talents, Mimi found joy crafting unique handbags out of cowhide and vintage fabrics and turning old furniture into works of art. Friends began asking for purses. Restaurants started asking for upcycled pieces. Mimi found herself doing what she loved for a living and having an immense amount on her plate.
He was running a successful landscaping business when he met Mimi, and their personalities instantly meshed. When he realized how swamped she was, Tracy stepped in and learned how to weld and create the structural elements behind her designs. Together the duo has crafted scores of unique pieces that span the industries of restaurant, home and fashion. Their work brings energy to the interiors of The Red Door, Sambar, Le Gourmand, and homes in the greater Seattle area and beyond. Opening Asher & Bailey was a natural fit. It's become a space to craft, advocate one-of-a-kind artisanal goods, meet locals and have fun in the process.
Come in, meet Mimi & Tracy, and be inspired.
Having been home schooled, Paula didn’t find the structured environment of college appealing. Instead, she worked part time at a clothing boutique in the resort town of Crescent Bar. In one month, Paula was promoted to Assistant Manager. Within 4 months, she was the Store Manager. She ran the boutique for 5 years and learned everything on the job. When her plans to purchase it fell through, she ended up taking a 9-5, keeping the dream of owning her own shop in her back pocket.
Waiting patiently for the right time and place to open her store paid off. In 2005, Paula moved to the small town of Monroe, Washington. Before opening, she surveyed hundreds of locals to get a feel for their thoughts on a clothing company. Out of 200 women, she only got one negative response, which was reason enough to launch.
