Meet The Team



Leslie, Owner

I have always had a deep appreciation for different styles of clothing, décor, and home furnishings. One of the things that makes me the happiest is sharing the things I love with other people and seeing the joy it brings them. I’m fortunate to have a daughter who shares the same feelings I have. We’ve been able to travel all across the U.S. the last couple of years and see (and buy) many different types of décor, styles of clothing and jewelry, and just all kinds of beautiful landscape that really inspired us to pursue our dream of owning a store together. We hope you will all enjoy and love Bluestem Mercantile as much as we do!

Michaela, Owner

Bluestem started out as a wild hair dream while I was in college and seven years later it has brought so much joy and fun into my life. My family and life has grown tremendously since then. I now have three boys Ladd, Loyal, and Landon who I love getting to share this dream with. Through Bluestem they have been able to see what entrepreneurship and grit can get you. I love getting to connect and curate items for my sweet customers. Bluestem is so much more than the brand with humble beginnings, is a hard-earned lifestyle I get the privilege to live out daily. Thank you for following along and supporting my little family.
