“For as long as I remember, my favorite pastime was to create with my hands. I started selling my handcrafts at the age of 13, going home every day and making more product to sell……school work was not a priority. I started making jewelry in the late 80’s and sold through craft fairs, retail outlets, and sales reps until I became a Realtor in 1997, which I continue today. I still make jewelry but also make shibori dyed scarves, beeswax candles, hair accessories, knitted scarves and felted items. Since my father owned a sporting goods store in which I spent a lot of time, it had been a long dream of mine to own a retail shop. Opening the shop has given me, and 3 of my children, a venue to sell our arts and crafts, along with over 70 talented Vashon Island artists represented in SAW.”
