Meet the Owner
Mitchell and Ashland Bell, Kid's Closet Connection Owners - - Warrensburg & Sedalia, Missouri
Kid's Closet Connection's community-based business model rings true with Ashland and Mitchell Bell. Franchise owners since 2016, the Bells are excited to nurture their blossoming businesses so close to their familys Warrensburg farm.
Ashland was born with an entrepreneurial spirit: her parents owned their own business and she has worked for established retailers. She also has managed independent sales at the Missouri State Fair, and currently moonlights as a direct sales consultant, while mixing it up with a home bakery business.
I shopped my first Kid's Closet Connection sale in 2014, while expecting our daughter, Hadlee, and was immediately sold on the whole consignment sale concept, Ashland says. What's not to love when you have the opportunity to shop a local, clean, organized sale for absolutely everything on your childrens list at GREAT PRICES?
Ashland also gets high marks for playing well with others. A school district Administrative Assistant by day, Ashland puts her boundless energy to work after-hours by coordinating Kid's Closet Connection sales and her other pursuits.
Mitchell is a hands-on guy at the sale, also working as a mechanic at a John Deere Dealer and helping operate the family farm. Ascribing to the adage, it takes a village, the extended Bell family will also be helping with the sales.
I'm excited to make lasting friendships with all who come to the sale, whether they are a buyer, consignor or volunteer, Ashland says.
