Announcement   Hello! My name is Elizabeth and I am not only the wife of a retired U.S. Military member but a veteran myself. I have two children and live in a quiet little community near to Thurmont, Maryland. I have created with many mediums throughout my lifetime. I love to sew, rubber stamp, make dried floral arrangements and especially gift baskets. Most, if not all of the items that I make have a vintage/nostalgic item in it giving the item a new life in a manner of speaking. I don't believe in tossing things out when they can be used again, tastefully.

Please stop by my store here or follow my blog sometime, I would love to meet you!

About

How We Got Started...

We are a former military family and we lived in Belgium for 9 years, while I was there I had made quite a bit of “stock” and had no place to sell it so I recruited a few friends, went to the Department of Defense and asked if I could begin a handcraft consignment shop on Chievres Air Base. I had to start a non-profit organization and then I found a building. We renovated the building and began “Grandma’s Attic”. I had to create the by laws, constitution, standing operating procedures, etc for the business. We started the day after Thanksgiving in 1991 and by the time hubby and I left in 1993 there were 27 vendors. No one was paid to work. We all had to put time in at the shop in order to sell our wares there. When we returned to Belgium to live in 1996, Grandma’s Attic had grown and moved two times. I was asked by Army Community Services and the base commander at the time to close the shop and add a thrift store onto it. I had never been involved with a thrift shop whatsoever so it was a challenge, but I did it with help from some of our friends that were still living there and affiliated with Grandma’s Attic. We moved yet again to a HUGE building where we renovated-again. The thrift shop was in back of the building and the craft/gift shop was in the front. Every year Grandma’s Attic donates several thousands of dollars to the different non-profits, orphanages and such in the area so all the money that comes into it, goes back out into both the military and the Belgian community. Just an fyi, Grandma’s Attic celebrated their 20th anniversary the day after Thanksgiving last year.

Now we have an online store and hopefully we can grow to have one in our own home later and be able to share in the experience with everyone we care about.

Thank you and have a groovy day!

Hi there!

I don't know about you but I love to create and when I see an item that is gently used and can be "loved" again, I want to make that happen within the realm of my own creativity. I try to use a vintage quality item when I am creating so that a little piece of the past will be meshed along with the present and live for years to come. I usually only create one of a kind items but if you see something that you might like to change on an "already made item" please convo me and I am pretty sure we can work things out to our beneficial satisfaction. Creating makes my soul happy, I love my job and one of the most special things I love about my job is when someone else appreciates my work. I suppose I love to see the smile on someone's face when something I have created brings happiness or contentment.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please look around and if you have any questions, please feel free to convo me or as we say back in Oklahoma, "Give me a holler".
