When I was a teenager, my parents went to Europe and brought back a beautiful woodcarving of the Madonna and Child for my grandparents. For the next almost fifty years, I searched for the same style of Madonna. In the process, I acquired a beautiful collection of wood carvings, figurines, and nativities. I have enjoyed the "search", the "quest", for just the right figurine. Eight years ago, my father died, and I received that original woodcarving.
Fifteen years ago, I began offering my "finds" to family and friends at Open Houses held in my home. A few years later, I was encouraged to take my gifts to two churches. So I packed up gifts for First Holy Communion, Confirmation, Baptism, gifts along with Nativities, Holy Family and saint statues, rosaries and inspirational gifts. People were pleased, but kept asking if I had a website so they could see things between the Open Houses.
Eight years ago, I opened the online side of my business and continue to search for new items for you, my customers. I buy from a variety of vendors and am always on the lookout for new ones. Not everything in my inventory is up on the website, so if there is something you are searching for, email me. I may have it in stock and can get it up right away. Or I can check with my vendors for items.
My husband and I are Midwesterners and lifelong Catholics, who met at church in Colorado. After 41 years of marriage, we continue to be active in our parish community. My husband, our three grown children, and their families, help out at my outside sales events. All paintings on the website were done by my mother, Polly G. Kemp (1928-1989).
I try to have everything in stock that is on the website. The exceptions will be during or right after a show as I check what sold against what is listed for sale here.
I am a member of the Fort Collins, Colorado Better Business Bureau.
