About Mimi

Beverly Alteri


I’m the wife of a 20 year Navy veteran. Mom to 4 children 3 boys and a girl. Mimi to 11 grand-babies. My world revolves around my family so it’s important to me that my professional world allows me the time I need to be active and present in their lives and outside activities. I’ve loved crafting my entire adult life, it was the one constant as my husband’s career moved us around the world. Meeting new people, new environments and ever-changing communities have given me the opportunity to learn from many different people/cultures and offered me the opportunity to add into my repertoire other skills that I may not have had the opportunity to learn if I had stayed in the little town in Downeast Maine where I was raised. In Nov 2022 I opened a cozy little brick n mortar shop in Ellsworth Maine fulfilling a dream I’ve had for as long as I can remember. In addition to the many hats I wear for Mimi’s, I’m also a creator/founder with Magnolia Design Co, as well as a promoter with Pruvit. I enjoy teaching workshops for both adults and children. Helping my customers find/design or DIY the perfect accent for their home or as a one-of-a-kind gift for a special person in their life is most definitely one of my favorites. I’m a glass half full kinda girl, I believe we can all be better versions of ourselves rather that’s learning a new skill, bettering our health and wellness, or helping team members/friends to reach their goals.
