About Handmade Galleries & Andy Spyros

Andy SpyrosAndy Spyros is a successful entrepreneur who teaches business owners how to infuse creativity into their businesses without sacrificing the bottom line. She shows businesses how to break out of their old way of thinking and become unconventional entrepreneurs who make more money and have more fun all with less effort.

A graduate of University of Michigan Ross School of Business, she briefly contemplated her doctorate before deciding there would be far less writing involved working at the famed I Magnin Department store in Chicago. Needing a break from the bitter Chicago weather, she moved to California.  After quickly turning around several of Limited Brands worst performing stores, Andy stepped further into the spotlight managing their flagship stores in Downtown LA and Santa Monica. 25 years later she continues her vacation in LA with the addition of a husband, two children, three fish and her own business.

As the owner of the landmark LA mega boutique, Handmade Galleries LA, Andy has learned to chart the path through many economic and business challenges using her intuition and creativity. Andy and her shop have been featured on ABC, NBC, top-rated shows on E!, MTV and VH1 as well as online and in print. She was recently named one of the nation's Top 25 Gifted Retailers by the industry's premiere trade magazine, Gifts & Decorative Accessories.

When she is not piloting her business, you can find Andy practicing Reiki, picking up her children from school, participating in the annual chili cook off or happily wandering Descanso Gardens taking a catnap in some sunny spot.
