We dream of working at a job we absolutely love. Anna Bailey had the same dream. So, she started Anna Baileying in October of 2015. It was a business focused on the three things she loved doing the most. Build.ing, Home.ing, Song.ing. She builds re-claimed furniture and art out of her garage shop, and sells it at boutiques in the twin ports and twin cities, as well as vintage shows across the state. She was also chosen to be a local artist for the West Elm, and you can soon find her designs and work at the Edina, Mn store. When her build.ing slows down, she shares DIY projects on her Home.ing blog. You can also find her at local bars and restaurants weekly singing and playing her tunes. She gives back all of her gig and tip money to community organizations in the hope of making a real and tangible impact in her city.
