About

Some people like the excitement and the lights of the big city, but I am happiest living in a small town. I have lived in Broken Arrow, Ok for 53 years. My daughters and son grew up here and at that time there were fewer than 9000 people living in Broken Arrow. There was no Walmart - just Ben Franklins Dime Store. We didn't have movie theaters, but we could load the family in the car and for a dollar, could spend the evening at the Drive-in.

We now have unlimited television programs that replace channel 2, 6 and 8. We have Dancing With The Stars instead of I Love Lucy. The Mom and Pop stores have been replaced by the big chain retailers. People spend more time texting than visiting or talking on the telephone.

The "Handmade Movement" that is now taking place in America reminds me of simpler days. It is nice to see people wanting more items crafted with care, instead of mass produced in a factory. Even though we are selling our goods on the internet,we want it to feel like a Small Town Market
where you are buying from a person, not a corporation.

My daughters, sister and I appreciate you stopping by and hope you see something you like.
