Beautiful. I do wish the beads were on the other side of the pin. Each time I wear it, I have to slip off a few tiny beads, attach it to my garment and then slip the tiny beads on again before latching.

About

Annie's Barn voted favorite "vendor" twice... I feel the love KC!

I make signs out of my basement.

And garage.

And sometimes a barn where I store items for shows and barnwood that I've collected.

Even though much has changed over the two years I've been in business, these basic attributes stay the same:

1. I make custom signs out of wood.
2. I have 100 percent customer satisfaction. In two years and 2,000 signs made I have refunded a total of two transactions. One of the refunds for a woman who didn't understand number 1. LOL. Etsy sales are just a small portion of the signs I've sold... I opened up this store after a story went out nationally about my business via the Associated Press. Yes, it's been an adventurous ride!
3. In Kansas City, I live in a small suburb called Overland Park. I work out of my basement. My signs are the highest quality as I have made many and tried many different paints and finishes. During the busy season, I hire part-timers. Still I handle some portion of making every sign even when it's busy.
4. I started this business on a foundation of trust. Hard work. Loyalty. That has served me well as most of business is repeat. I have customers that have ordered over $500 in signs. For some, I am their "go to" for wedding signs.
5. It paid off this past year when I tried two local vintage and holiday markets ... these two shows attracted thousands of people and I sold thousands of dollars worth of signs. I was voted favorite vendor for both shows. I hope its because I try to do business the old fashioned way.
6. About me... My name is LeAnne Stowe... my nickname is Annie. I grew up on a farm in Kansas. I worked a farm in Kansas driving tractors and old trucks around the fields and country roads. We had cows, pigs, chickens, dogs, cats, rabbits, and once, a goat...but not for long. You learn a lot about the value of life, nature, animals, and hard work on a farm. I went to J-school at Kansas State University and graduated. I went to work at weekly newspapers in Texas for two years before I came back to KC to work for a local daily paper. When browsers were developed, I was an early adopter an parlayed that into a career in online marketing working for Fortune 500 companies where I traveled and worked with the best ad agencies in the nation. After a great career I found that life with two kids and a working spouse was too exhausting. I stayed home with the kids for 10 years before I started collecting vintage for sale and making signs.
7. My first year in business allowed me to earn enough to purchase Clementine... my 1972 Chevy Cheyenne pickup. With a leather-tooled look vinyl bench seat, original carpet and dash, I laughed most of the ride home after I bought her. I love the truck. She loves me back.
