~ About Me ~

I've always been artistic and was lucky enough to study at BYU in fine arts while minoring in psychology. I've always loved to create things. In the past I have designed custom iron lighting for a manufacturing company. I have exceptional attention to detail and eye for style in my designs. With my experience in the design field and knowledge in construction processes I've been able to create my own unique line of hand crafted items. I've been selling my cake stands since 2010 on our website http://roxyheartvintage.com and have found Etsy to be an excellent venue to supplement my site.

~ Inspiration for Roxy Heart Vintage ~

My inspiration came as I planned my wedding. I set out to find these amazing items that would match my vision and came up empty handed. It seemed that all the decorations I found were cheap looking and outdated. I ended up crafting my own wedding cake stand with a rustic damask feel to it and the vision just sort of unfolded from there. Next I was on to custom hand stamped jewelry and tree slice cake stands. Somewhere amidst the flurry of a wedding which was planned completely on my own, a new business, my current full time job and my slightly neglected fiance, I had managed to keep everything together. The business began as an idea to sell a few things I couldn't find for my wedding and has flourished into a place where handmade artistic items are found.

~ What can buyers find at Roxy Heart Vintage, and what makes it unique ~

Buyers can find a wide variety of items from rustic tree slice cake stands to wrought iron decor and custom hand stamped jewelry. The items are unique because each is handmade. I also offer many custom options for my products. The site was born from the lack of truly inspired style in wedding items so I've tried to emphasize that if you have a specific vision I'd love to help you bring that into fruition!

~ What is new at Roxy Heart Vintage ~

We are always creating new things at Roxy Heart Vintage. My favorite items are the Tree Slice Cake Stands which now have an upgrade option to be used as a lazy susan or turn table. Sometimes people hesitate purchasing something they really love because they'll only use it once or twice. I've come up with this upgrade option to the tree slice cake stand to make sure that you're purchase will be used day after day. Why store it when you can use it and enjoy it all the time!?

~Shipping~

I can usually ship your tree slice cake stand within 3 days from time of payment. Please note the date of your event when purchasing. If your wedding is in 10 days or less, expedited shipping may be required and will be extra.

~Why buy a Cake Stand from RoxyHeartVintage~

I use only reclaimed, newly fallen trees. I don't cut live trees! When choosing a cake stand it is important to choose a wood that holds its bark well. I have a selection of woods which are of the upmost quality. I reinforce the bark to prevent it from dropping and I search for hardwoods like Black Walnut and Locust because of their beauty and superior quality to cheaper woods that can experience dramatic splitting and deterioration. I use a multi-step preservation process to stabilize the wood before I apply the finish. It takes time and is costly but I believe in creating a quality product that will last and am passionate about what I do. I'd simply rather explain the price than apologize for the quality.

My years of experience with tree slice cake stands and my passion for beauty and style in craftsmanship are shown in my work.
