How to send a kid to college without any student loans.

WE LOVE WOOD!!! Old wood, new wood, dark wood, lightwood, hardwood, softwood, domestic, exotic, aromatic ...well...you get the idea. There just is not, an ugly piece of wood. Truly one of God's great creations.

We have been making gifts of wood for family and friends for about 15 years. Many have said we should make them and sell them, so we said "Why Not." So in January 2012 we opened Tante and Oom (Aunt and Uncle in Dutch). The name is a tribute to our Dutch Heritage. All our items are made in our house in a small 10 foot by 20 foot shop converted from a garage stall.

We use the money we make to help pay for our kids college. We do not believe in taking out loans for school, and this store is helping us fund our oldest daughter's education. (Thank you Etsy and all our customers)

Some of our shop philosophies:
1. Gratitude: To be able to make a little money doing something you love is a gift.
2. Simplicity: Do not ruin the beauty of the wood that is already there, keep it simple.
3. Usefulness: Make items that people will actually use and enjoy.
4. Waste Not: Try to use as much of a board as possible.
5. Honesty: Be accurate in your product descriptions and pictures.
6. Quality: Never be content with you product, there is always room for improvement.

Well, that's all for now. Thanks for looking at our shop.

Welcome (Welkom) to the little shop of Tante (Aunt) Katy and Oom (Uncle) Mark. We owe the name of our shop to our Dutch Ancestors and some special nieces. We have been making products of wood and fabric for friends and relatives for 20 years now. We hope that people we have not yet meet, will like our stuff also.

All our products are handmade by us in our home or shop. We love what we do and hope that it shows in our products. If our customers enjoy their purchases as much as we enjoy making them, we will have been successful.

Please feel free to email us at any time with questions, comments, etc. We desire your feedback. Thank you Mark and Katy (Tante and Oom).
