We are a husband and wife team here at 213 Designs!
Growing up, I have a hard time remembering a fall weekend that wasn’t spent at a craft show with my Grandparents who have been craft vendors for over 38 years! They are the ones that instilled my love of arts and crafts. Luckily, I was able to marry someone that loved to build and create things as well. We are a great team – Barry is a wonderful woodworker and a good problem solver. We started attending local craft shows back in 2006 and kept up with it each busy craft season until our daughter was born in 2010. Life got turned upside down with that little bundle of joy, so we took some time off to enjoy her. We have since added another little girl and a boy as well. 🙂
My husband and I went to visit my Grandmother while she was vending at a craft show in September of 2014 and walking down the aisles, looking at all of the booths, made me miss what we had when we were crafting. It is such an amazing creative outlet and we are so fortunate to be able to create and sell our goods. Well, on the way home from that show in September we decided to jump back in. It was going to be small, just a show or two, but that isn’t really our style! So here we are – On Etsy, Amazon Handmade, Facebook, and going to many local shows. We’re all in and loving it! I didn’t know how much I missed creating while I was away and am so excited to be here!!
