More Handmade Things @ Silkweeds

These Signs are handmade and painted by Country Mama Signs, right here in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine.
She does a great job and will write anything you want on a sign. We are fortunate to have her in our shop as a crafter.

Felted Purses galore, Denise Perkins-Fields does an amazing job on all the purses that she makes. She is also felting bowls now and we should have them soon. She sews rabbits and dolls also. Quite a jack of all trades, or I guess that would be Jill ;).

Pot Scrubbies, no house should be without them and I can't even tell you how many of these we go through. They are great and they work on all pots and pans, even no scratch surfaces. We have a local lady that does these for us as well.

Handmade doilies are great too. This week I have sold about 6 of them. My mother-in-law is to thank for these. She spends all winter crocheting them and starching them then we have them to sell here. She makes them in runners for us too.

We are so fortunate to have all these people that can craft for our store. We are more than willing to sell handcrafted items, we prefer to do that in many instances. Watch tomorrow for even more things that are handcrafted.

These are just some of the reasons that "It's Always Worth The Trip @ Silkweeds"

Do you know anyone that makes nice things and is willing to sell wholesale to a shop? Let them know that we are always looking for new things to buy for our store.
