Country Home Creations
Shirley Kautman-Jones was working at a bank when she heard her co-workers discussing how they had a difficult time creating impressive, easy meals. Shirley, being a natural in the kitchen, would send them home with little bags of spices and easy recipes to follow. Her creations were an instant success and she realized it was time to expand outside her comfort zone. She decided to start taking her savings and driving down to the market in Detroit, MI to pick new, different spices for her creations. Her next idea was to sell her bags of spices at a craft bazaar at the church. She priced the bags for 75 cents each and set up her table with samples of her creations. To her surprise, she sold all 100 bags in a matter of minutes.
