I love this tank! It is comfy and fits nicely. My order came fast and everything I ordered was perfect.
Quotes and a love of reading
I started Thornfield Hall because I had been looking for items that had quotes from the books I loved like Jane Eyre, Anne of Green Gables, and Wuthering Heights. I had a friend who has had a successful Etsy store for several years and she started encouraging me to think about opening my own store.
Thornfield Hall gets its name from the estate of Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Jane Eyre is my favorite classic novel. I love Jane's courage and determination in the midst of difficulty and even self-doubt. She is very much an inspiration to me.
All of my items are designed by me and hand screen printed using soft hand inks. Even my screens are hand made. When I first started Thornfield Hall, I hand screen printed every item myself. Due to the popularity of some of the scarves, I am now working with a small, one woman silk screen studio here in Colorado Springs that hand screen prints a few of the most popular quotes on scarves. I still screen print by hand many of the scarves and all of the shirts. I choose things that I would wear myself. I've chosen quotes I love from books that are classics and some of my favorites. I am planning to add more quotes and items in the future.
I live in the beautiful Rocky Mountains with my two daughters- 12 and 9. Another reason I started my shop was so that I could be home when my daughters were home. I hope to raise my girls with as much of a love of reading as I can fill them with!
I am excited about bringing my love for reading and words to you. I hope my work will bring fond memories to you of reading the books these quotes come from or inspire you to read the book if you haven't.
