I LOVE this giant cone! I'm a fan of all things ice cream and hung this in conjunction with a gallery wall in my home where it's a truly whimsical statement piece. The seller was awesome to work with, answering various questions and sending lots of photos so I could make the perfect choice. I was a little worried about how well it would come through shipping, but it was packaged so carefully that it arrived in pristine condition (and fast, too!). Get yourself a giant cone - you'll be glad you did!

I just received my second handmade sign and quite frankly had thought it couldn't get any better than the first one - until I opened and got a look at my new one!! Thank you.

About

The Watermelon Stand how we got our name...

I used to be known as "The Watermelon Lady" back in the early 90's when it was super popular to decorate with watermelons.

At local DC area craft shows The Watermelon Stand sold everything watermelon from tiny wood watermelon items to watermelon chairs. And our booth had 14 different folk arts represented. Our biggest sellers were antique quilt hats, Hand made Hand painted birdhouses, Calligraphy hand print poems, watermelon anything and hand-painted chairs and dressers.

Evolving from country to shabby chic over the years I now paint a lot of flowers. I really have become the custom painter for my clients. I have been asked to paint a wide variety of styles and on a wide variety of surfaces, walls, dressers, tin boxes, serving trays, kitchen cabinets.

I have practiced the art of Calligraphy since middle school. I have taught formal Calligraphy classes to close to 200 students over the years including teaching in Japan. Over the years I have incorporated the painting and Calligraphy to make decorative painted poetry. My newest use of typography and Calligraphy is on the new Chalkboard Art Signs.

All my work is freehand adding that homemade, handmade touch.

How does the aromatherapy fit in? Well it is still the Watermelon Stand... so I thought I would share my love of Herbs and essential oils in the shop as well. I am a trained Clinical Herbalist as well as teach classes on medicinal herbs on our property here in Virginia. Some of the herbs in our products are grown here on our little homestead. We make goat milk soap from the milk from our own dairy goats.

I say we on a lot in my descriptions but it really is a one woman show here. I design, produce, and finish each and every item, then I pack and ship it myself.

Remember, here at the Watermelon Stand we are your Custom store, your style, your color, your scent, your choice. We put the word custom in handmade!!

Yes, a draft drawing of signs is sent for your approval before actual sign is made. Once sign is made a photo is sent of the actual sign for approval before it is varnished.

Usually I am not able to work on unpaid orders however you may purchase a non refundable deposit for drawing drafts that is deducted from your final bill.

Yes! I can usually fit your wording in any design. It is helpful to send a conversation email through etsy with your wording and desired size and design so we can make sure it fits and make a custom listing for you.

Custom and personalized orders

How can I custom order a sign?
Send a conversation through etsy from a listing you like, tell me size, framed or unframed, and zip code any designs you like or I can always make a new design just for you! I can also send you a pricelist of standard sizes. You are not limited to standard size I can do any size!
