Joyce and Tony's Profile

About

I enjoy collecting and Joyce of 45 years has said enough is enough. You will find a variety of items I have accumulated over the years and now offer them to you. Joyce is a tatting artist learned about 25 years ago and I'm so happy that she is allowing me to display her work here. Joyce would tat and leave her works laying around the house until I framed one pieces and Joy of Tatting was born. Many of her original art pieces are offered here.
I try to specialize in sewing related items, patterns, notions, instructional materials and crafts.
We are essentially pecan farmers living in the middle of southeast Texas about 50 miles from Houston.

Heavy gumbo black clay soil made it difficult but we did manage to get 150+ pecan and fruit trees in the ground.

I love to eat pecans and watch TV. Joyce hated the cleanup made from cracking the shells and more times than not after I cleaned the mess as luck would have it, I miss that one small piece of shell that you find while walking bare footed. She did find that one small piece, and words I didn't know she knew were being yelled at me.
Over the past few years we have tried to find a nut cracker to sell and one that would keep her happy, would be affordable and easy to use and enhance our product mix. We searched hours on the Internet and at shows but alas it never appeared. So, we invented the “POTTERS PECAN-NUT CRACKER” the no mess nut cracker.

It’s been a great hit and fun to make and cracks a large variety of nuts, pecans, walnuts, filberts, almond, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts just to name a few. Our patent is pending and we take great pride in the fact that it is locally made with materials from the good old USA and Texas. Check it out and remember it makes a great gift especially for that hard to buy for.
