I love this! Bought one for my cousin for his wedding and it turned out super cute. It's such a sweet, personal gift that is a guaranteed heart warmer that the couple can cherish forever.

So beautiful and well made! I just loved them!
Welcome to The Penny Runner!!
Hello! I'm Melissa Lyons! My taste is rather eclectic and I find myself drawn to all that is old and rustic, yet delicate and dainty. I live in a quaint yellow homestead in NC with my charming Husband, beautiful baby girl, Irish Wolfhound, Newfoundland, lazy cat and 5 chickens.
I decided to open my shop in 2012, when I found myself yearning for a more creative outlet. My business minded Husband recommended that I open my own shop and what a stupendous idea that was! And so, The Penny Runner was born.
My work is inspired by nature and loosely based on the American folk art of penny rug making. Women in the mid 1800's would collect worn wool and cut it into circles using coins as templates. They then embroidered them together for use as decorative items. I chose to name my shop after my most basic form of inspiration.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Photographer, Artist
Hello There! I'm Melissa! The artist and maker behind the wares of The Penny Runner. I am largely inspired by mornings in my flower garden, rustic trinkets, and my little girls giggles.
