Imagine if you knew where every item in your closet came from. If your favorite
pair of shoes had its own story from start to finish, from the person that designed
it to the clerk that placed it on the shelf before you found it, fell in love, and
took it home. Would you think about those shoes differently? Would it make them
even more special and treasured?
In the big box world of retail, it’s impossible to know the story behind each piece.

But when you buy handmade, that’s not the case.
When you buy handmade, you’re interacting directly with the creator of the thing
you’re going to buy. That person has their own story, their own life, and the things
they create are a huge part of it. We create for the love of what we do, and we
want other people to love our creations just as much.
Every piece I make has its own story. I can tell you if the purse you’re buying
was a made from a piece of vintage fabric I found at an estate sale, or maybe it
started life as a scrap of fabric leftover from one of my theater design projects.
There’s a closeness to the creative process that you can’t find anywhere BUT with
an independent artisan.
And despite what connotations the word “handmade” may carry for some people, this
isn’t like shopping your mother’s craft fair where you can find snowmen made out
of pompoms and googly eyes. To see the care and detail that goes into each piece
I make, click here.
Thank you so much for visiting, and I hope you fall in love with the handmade world
just as I have!
