First of all, happy October! Such a comfy cozy and fun time of year and I love all things fall! What makes this October even more amazing is that I am welcoming two new local artisans to Reclaimed Rose! I am so excited to expand with more amazing handmade pieces! The two new artisans are Chanie Danks with Bees Knees Boutique, specializing in hand knit and sewn clothing and accessories and Two Twisted Gypsies, a husband and wife team of Michelle and Brian Tice, who create amazing one of a kind accessories from vintage jewelry and found objects.
Chanie Danks is an extremely friendly and bubbly mother of two from Columbiana who creates adorable, whimsical creations for both children and adults. She is constantly knitting and sewing and she is a perfectionist at her work. Chanie has been teaching classes for beginners knitting and we can expect a few of those to be added to the Reclaimed Rose schedule soon! Take a look at Chanie's work:
Chanie can make custom creations, perfect for Halloween, the upcoming holidays and children's birthdays. This busy mom has been creating things for the shop, only to have people trying to purchase her work before she can even get it on the shelves! I cannot wait to see her cute creations at Reclaimed Rose.
The Two Twisted Gypsies duo is also in high demand! Brian and Michelle are very gifted artists from East Liverpool, OH who have been featured in several boutiques and craft fairs throughout the area. They have amazing vision and can make beautiful one of a kind pieces from just about any found object. Many of the salvaged treasures are one of a kind making it hard to duplicate any one item. Some of the materials they use are typewriter keys, cutlery, metal hardware, keys, tiny dolls, vintage emphemera and even spigot handles! Check out some of their work:
Brian and Michelle are also offering custom pieces, which you can have hand stamped and designed just for you! Please stop in and check out the Gypsies display next week - the entire display piece was hand made and is beautiful!
Two Twisted Gypsies and Bees Knees Boutique are expected to be in store by Tuesday, October 6th! More pictures and posts to follow!
