Welcome to Late Bloom Heirlooms!

Growing up in Pennsylvania in a family of history and antique enthusiasts, I developed appreciation for well-worn and well-loved things that had passed through many hands—I used to scuff my feet whenever I would pass from one room to another in our colonial-era farmhouse, as the threshold of each door had a little valley worn in its center from generations of feet passing over. I liked to imagine the people who had put their mark on the house, and I liked to think that I was adding my own to the long history of the house.

The work you’ll find in this shop provides a modern take on the folk traditions from the East coast, primarily the “fraktur” certificates celebrating births and marriages, or mourning deaths, created by German settlers to Pennsylvania. As an amateur genealogist and trained geneticist—my first degree is in biology, and I worked in clinical genetics after my first round of college—I’ve always found historical demographic data fascinating, and I love the idea of helping families commemorate their milestones, while creating fascinating documents to be cherished—or discovered!—by future generations.
