Plain & Fancy is BORN!
I am in a band. I hang out with dirty boy musicians all day. Sometimes I just need to tap in to my girly, artsy eclectic side...so....
I started "Plain & Fancy Emporium" when I looked around my house and realized I am a hoarder for boxes. Jewelry boxes, photo boxes, apothecary cabinets, make-up carriers, boxy type vintage luggage, and totes. I don't know why I have this obsession, but I like anything that looks like a box. It is weird, and so random, but that's perfectly alright...
I decided to start refurbishing these "boxes" and sell them simply so that I could continue buying them....enjoy them in my home for awhile, and then pass them on to others that appreciated pretty things.
I also have a slight obsession with clocks. I just like the way they look. I have a million different clocks on my walls, but none of them even work. They just look flat cool.
This year, I started becoming obsessed with Cuckoo Clocks, naturally. I searched and searched for cute Cuckoo Clocks, and found that they were all old, broken, and too expensive. AND NOT cute. So, I found someone who makes unpainted, brand new clocks that actually CUCKOO, and voile! It has turned in to the biggest selling item for the Emporium. I LOVE painting personalized clocks for people, and I spend waaaaaay too much time on them. But they always turn out to be darling. I would love to be responsible for single handedly bringing back the Cuckoo Clock in 2013. That would be my contribution to the world.
Oh, and I decided on the name "Plain & Fancy Emporium" because who doesn't LOVE the word "EMPORIUM"?! It's badass.
Enjoy the shop! Thanks for reading. I love you.
