You get our catalogs, you see us at shows, but do you ever wonder where this company with such cute things and awesome prices came from?
Well, here's your answer!
Hanna's Handiworks was started in 1996 by Scott Dolasky and Hanna Garretson. Inventory consisted of four fabric dolls, and was run out of Scott and Hanna's house! Retailers quickly appreciated the look, quality and price of Hanna's Handiworks products. When Scott and Hanna started getting containers full of merchandise at their house to fill orders, they decided it was time to get a warehouse.
In 1998 Scott and Hanna began leasing warehouse space in the Kansas City area. That same year, David Hergert joined the Hanna's team. David brings over 20 years experience in merchandise design, and is the company's Vice President. In 2001, Hanna's Handiworks found its home in a cave complex in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
No, kidding, it's really a cave! Why you might ask?
The temperature and humidity in a cave is always constant. Inventory in a cave lasts an average of six times longer than in an average warehouse. That way we are able to have a large inventory so we can fill your re-orders! As a customer of Hanna's, I'm sure you can see how the company has grown from a small garage to a 150,000 square foot warehouse with 10 warehouse and 10 office employees in only eight years. We are always striving to bring you top quality products, low prices, and great customer service. We are here to help your business grow and prosper.
