About Us

storefrontWhen Carolyn Hough-Miller first opened About The Home, she had clear expectations. Now, 15 years later, those humble expectations have been greatly exceeded! In fact, she’s even merged with the Four Seasons Gift Shop and expanded to their current Grand Ledge location, which makes her feel right at home.

“It is a very wholesome, safe, family oriented place,” Carolyn explains. “As a business owner I have to work late hours and I never worry about staying late in the store.”

She also attributes the business’ longevity and great success to knowing her customers and, in turn, their loyalty.
