I started this business about 30+ years ago and changed over from part time doing local craft fairs while working full time in Special Education for SAD #59 for 19 years to retiring to be able to do this full time for the past 10 years only doing large juried craft fairs around the state and working from my home to do special orders.
I'm a photographer who loves photographing still life (with a vintage twist), flowers and a hint of nature. In lightroom and photoshop I take these photographs to another level by adding creative techniques. I'm also incorporating other photographic techniques such as cyanotype and encaustic wax.
He also will do some select custom work.
Nancy offers a line of high quality bags with matching wallet and face masks using a wide variety of Batiks and cotton prints.
We are both Maine natives. David grew up in Portland and Nancy in Falmouth. We have been happily married since 1975. In 2003 we retired from our successful Financial Services Practice in the Greater Portland area. After retiring we traveled the US for 5 1/2 years in our motorhome. We came back to Maine every summer and eventually built a small home in Clinton, Maine. We still love to travel and camp in our RV and incorporate camping with our craft shows whenever possible. Both of us have always been very crafty and we decided to do what we love, David making sawdust in his shop and Nancy at her sewing machine.
David has always loved woodworking and now spends all his time in his shop. He loves to use his imagination to make high quality products using a wide variety of unique woods. He has developed a full line of cutting boards in a variety of sizes and wooden bowls as well as lazy susans. He is also a luthier and makes acoustic, electric and bass guitars and ukuleles.
Nancy spends her days in her studio making unique bags with matching wallets. She uses a variety of cotton prints as well as batiks. She also handles the business end of things and keeps our calendar straight.
Needless to say, we both love this lifestyle. We strive to offer high quality products at a reasonable price. We really enjoy doing craft shows and we love meeting the nice people who attend the shows and purchase our products. We sell our products throughout the year at Craft Shows, directly to existing and new customers, and on our Etsy shop.
