Found items are given a new adventure. Forgotten frames are re-purposed to display fabric portraits. Remnants become creatures ready to explore.

Tell us about your business.

I stumbled upon a bunch of vintage frames and decided to give them a new adventure. Fabric remnants are carefully selected and given a new purpose... whether it be portraits, handheld adventurers, or totes. Sundae Matinee makes items for your home, office, or for those in search of that special gift sure to bring a smile.

What makes your business stand out?

The majority of the supplies used in our product are vintage and found items that are being re-purposed.

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

My mother-in law once told me this awesome quote: "For today she decided to just take a deep breath and put one foot in front of the other. She realized it was progress and not perfection, that would get her where she wanted to go." I think that pretty much sums it up.
