Business Name: Memories of Yesteryear
I’ve been collecting and crafting one-of-a-kind handmade creations from antique and vintage materials on a seasonal basis for a couple of decades. Now that I’ve entered retirement, I’m desiring to establish a fulltime crafting business.
Elevator Pitch: At Memories of Yesteryear we create unique, vintage-inspired angels, tea cozies, satchel bags, vests, and floral ribbon pins from vintage linens, lace and ribbons with antique pearl and glass buttons, and specialty remnants and other embellishments. These one-of-a-kind designs are timeless pieces reflecting the character and memories of days gone by. Our focus over the years has been in creating “An Angel Treasure” series featuring handmade angel designs. A written summary accompanied each angel with a brief history of textiles used and words of sentiment reflecting the special occasion (Christmas, weddings, birth/christening, encouragement, congratulations, appreciation, hope, etc.) when gifting each angel creation.
