Carolyn Hannan, Owner

My earliest memories are growing up in family business. My dad owned and operated a manufacturing plant and my mom owned and operated a drapery business. Raising my two kids at Lady Bear is a dream come true, a vision realized. So many life lessons are taught and confidence is built for kids in an entrepreneurial setting. (Ask me how I know!)

I am a 38 year-old Kentucky native and have called Louisville home since 1994. I moved around a lot in my twenties and found my husband in New York City in 2005. I brought him back to Kentucky with me; we live in St. Matthews with our two young children, Alex and Katherine. My career has focused on strategic management, marketing and graphic design, food and health, and adding good in the world. I have a soft spot for small retail.

I love working smart (not hard). I love small businesses and I love entrepreneurship. I love my family. I am so excited to share my vision of Lady Bear Resale with you in the coming years. Thank you for visiting with us!


Shayna, Assistant Store Manager

As a nanny of 15 years, I have a natural passion for all things family and child. Being a part of the Lady Bear Squad is very exciting. I love getting to know the Louisville locals and learning about their Grandchildren or pregnancy! Helping our customers find the perfect item is one of my favorite things.

Being a California native in a Kentucky world, I love hearing where everyone is from!

Come see me at Lady Bear and let me help you find the perfect treasure for you or your tribe!
