Our story. Our vision. Our dream.
Jim and Connie Schumaker started their business with nothing more than a saber saw, sander paper, and some paint. It quickly grew in leaps and bounds and expanded to where Connie took over their two-car garage and more than half of the basement. At that time, they were doing over 20 major craft shows a year in 7 different states, in addition to having two reps on the west and east coasts.
Connie has worked with wood and cloth since she was very young...an interest that quickly became a fun career for her. She has always enjoyed working and renewing old pieces... those old forgotten pieces that at one time stood proudly in your parents, grandparents, or aunts' homes to only be moved to the attic for something more modern and up-to-date.
Pieces that were loved enough to keep but have been left and neglected for years. These are the type of pieces that Connie gives a new life and purpose, mixing antique with modern.
Ten years ago they expanded their line to include jewelry. This time they went beyond the wood to work with Vintage Sterling Silver Flatware making necklaces, pendants, earrings, rings, custom bracelets, etc.
Fast forward through their children's graduations from high school and college, marriage, and onto 5 of the greatest grandkids anyone could ever want. Connie and Jim decided it was time to open up the two-car garage, basement, and barn (which she is slowly taking over as well with her pieces!), take a break from so many craft shows, and open up a store.
