Tell us about your business.

My handmade business is devoted to creating quality useful and practical items to be used every day. I create products that are inspired by days gone by, when less was more. Not so much to re-create products from the past, but rather to re-visit an era when workmanship and quality were king. A time when the greatest attention was paid to the smallest of detail to ensure that people could enjoy their purchase to the fullest, from beginning to end.

What makes your business stand out?

I am the proprietress of a handmade shop. The shelves are lined with over one-hundred artisan creations all of which I make.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Never say never...
