About AvalHouse

Sales 6
On Etsy since 2019

A thing of both beauty and usefulness is twice-blessed indeed.

It began with travel. New sights seen, new smells smelled, new tastes tasted. Green hills…deep valleys…wide oceans… Somehow, of all this came a sneaking suspicion that the beautiful and the lovely were not only for days that “deserved” them (birthdays, weddings, anniversaries) but for ordinary times.

Thus began the journey of crafting things of quality and excellence but also of usefulness and “useable-ness.” Because a thing that is beautiful only is but half-blessed, but a thing of both beauty and usefulness is twice-blessed indeed!

So it is with our crafting and spinning and making: striving always to work loveliness into things that can be used every ordinary day.

  • Nicole Koehn

    Founder, Owner

    Nicole is a firm advocate for deep discussion and living the Renaissance Spirit. When she is not working, she can be caught buried in poetry, brooding over ancient languages, writing, or pondering the deep questions great literature so well provokes.

  • Elise Koehn

    Founder, Owner

    Elise never hesitates when faced with the opportunity to wear a Victorian hoop skirt or indulge in a merry laugh over Gilbert and Sullivan. She enjoys a delicious tea and all enduring Classics, but gives a special tip of the hat to Sherlock Holmes.
