About FlynnandGrace

Sales 5,464
On Etsy since 2015

It was love at first strike...

Constantly inspired by other artisans, I finally settled on the idea of launching my own Etsy shop with a product that I truly loved from start to finish. With a desire to create and a little bit of "insane courage," I purchased my first vintage steel alphabet stamp set, grabbed a hammer from the garage, and settled into a tiny corner in our living room (now my studio). It was love at first strike. With a sore thumb and a ton of patience, I was finally comfortable enough with a few pieces to launch my shop. Flynn and Grace officially opened end of March, 2015. Etsy truly offers such a wonderful platform that allows sellers such as myself to slowly transform a dream into a reality.

Having a home based business has been exciting, rewarding, and challenging, all at the same time. I personally enjoy most, the interactions with customers that seek our shop in hopes of creating a special piece for their loved ones. My very observant daughter says I smile most when I'm answering my emails from customers. Knowing that our shop is playing a role in a baby reveal or a marriage proposal... how could I not?

My family has been such a huge support since the start of Flynn and Grace. My daughter has the vintage bug like her mother. She accompanies me on most all of my treasure hunting and has an amazing eye for vintage flatware. My son's role is more of a quality control department. He's forever honest and keeps me creating to the best of my ability. My husband remains a positive force, constantly reminding me that all things are possible as long as you simply try. They have all been undoubtedly very patient with me, even at times when I didn't deserve it.

Thank you for opportunity to do what I love... create.
