A classic case of being in the right place at the right time, Kelly Bartsch met another couple who discovered Miche Bag in Las Vegas and brought it to Omaha. She worked with that couple for a bit, then acquired the distributorship business for the state of Nebraska, Miche Nebraska. Miche Nebraska has home reps that offer home parties and free products and retail locations that sell Miche products. They also have a Miche showroom and distribution center that is open to the public at Nebraska Crossing Mall in Gretna.
