About OurGrayBarn

Sales 4,248
On Etsy since 2015

Our shop was started when I begged my husband to make a marker holder for my Copic Sketch markers. Soon many of the crafting community started asking for it and the shop has taken off from there. We started as TJ and Things and was limited to marker grids. The overwhelming response and love from all of you has enabled us to build a bigger building to create more items to put into the shop. With this milestone, we have changed our name to Our Gray Barn....a place we both are able to create things for our customers.
It is our pleasure to continue adding items for the craft room and home decorating.
