Keeping up with my website, sickness and life in general, has made it hard to find the time to post as often as I used to. I want to say how much I appreciate customers that have taken the time out of their busy days to write an email, letting me know they received their package, and how happy they are with their purchases. It’s also so nice that some also take time to take a photo of their purchase so that I can share them on my Wonderful Customer Page. I really do feel like I have the best customers, and many new friends.
Now that the nice weather is just around the corner, I’m looking forward to more day trips with my camera, anxious to share my days with you. This past Monday I met with a friend, a talented craftsman from Quarryville, a borough of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He makes the most fabulous reproductions out of very old wood, never new, early nails and his own hand carved pegs when needed. He told me he has some early wood with it’s original blue paint. I have asked him to make an apple box with some, and I can’t wait to see it. I am hoping he will agree to join all of the wonderful artisans in my American Artisan Store. We also talked about the possibility of him making window tins. I would love to be able to offer them to my customers on my website.
I have over 40 of these tins, all different. I purchased most of them in Intercourse, Pennsylvania, well over 30 years ago. I have always had them in my windows, never tiring of how they look. You just don’t see them anymore and I am hoping John will make them for me.He told me he has lots of old tin, even early shears for cutting tin. As soon as I find out, I’ll let you know.
