Samantha Zander owner of Simply Inspired has been making jewelry since her Sophomore year in High School. She found a space for rent in Manawa and it all just came together very spur of the moment. She offers homemade lotions, shower gels, lip balms, soaps, body scrubs, and the absolute coolest crayons that are so fun and different. She can customize the packaging and scents, for example, if you are a bride looking for a unique thank you gift for your bridesmaids, you can work with Samantha to formulate a signature fragrance and label for a an awesome personalized gift to say thank you to those who were a part of your special day. Samantha wanted to be able to offer some more natural options, since she herself has some allergies to different products. Another line of things she is working on is handmade slippers, Samantha loves slippers and wanted to offer a variety of them in her store.
