Kath Suze's Profile

About

"artybaby" is two friends who share a love of things found, cleaned, ordered, and dealt with. Early on, we discovered a common genetic propensity to dig and search for stuff no matter the conditions. In fact, the more horrible the surroundings, the better the stories. (Our husbands have even recoiled at the telling.) Kath's dad was a seeker and digger, too, an inspirer who crawled great distances over piles of lesser obstacles to reach the perfect chair.

In our business, Kath is always on the hunt for treasures to fuel our creativity, loving to save things that mattered to someone and give them a new life. She is also a devout needlepointer and fiber lover. We are both idea people and enjoy a good think session with coffee and hysterics. Suze loves old things, jewelry making, metal, gemstones and knitting.

Because of our interest in the vast array of unrelated objects that seem to fall in our laps, we enjoy filling our store with things that catch our attention and push us to create.

P.S. Thank you for looking --you'll never know what you're going to find in our shop, but you'll always know what we've been up to!
