Meet Monica Potter
In 2012, I founded Monica Potter Home and began working with local artisans and craftspeople to produce a line of home goods and beauty essentials that celebrate a simple, honest and beautiful approach to homemaking. I launched my first store in Garrettsville, Ohio and recently opened a second location in downtown Cleveland. It is about bringing jobs back to the place that I still call home.
Growing up in Cleveland Ohio with two hard working parents, I learned early on the importance of hard work, dedication and family. My mother was a homemaker who always made it her priority for my sisters and me to grow up in a loving, caring and comfortable home. My late father was an inventor and instilled in my sisters and me how important it was to be creative and think outside the box. I have always dreamed of some day making my own goods to enrich and beautify everyone’s homes.
I recently purchased my childhood home and this past spring, I returned to Cleveland to restore it with my mom and three sisters. I produced the show Welcome Back Potter, which aired on HGTV in October 2016. It is amazing to be home and bring back the laughter and memories.
Starting Monica Potter Home was more than just starting a company. It is truly the foundation of why I do everything that I do. It is a way to pay tribute to my late father who always encouraged me to reach for the stars.
Here’s to life, love, laughter, and lessons,
