For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to have a business of my own. One where I would sell the things that I make and enjoy.
 My mom is an incredibly talented crafter and I watched her growing up. A seamstress, floral designer, a crafter of all sorts. I remember watching her refinish furniture when I was just a wee little girl.
I did my first craft show in 1989-hehe, wow, that makes me feel vintage.
I have tinkered with different crafts through the years. Over the last year, I have taken the leap and made my hobby, a bonified business. I've combined my enjoyment of thrifting, sewing, painting, crafting, and creating, with my dream of having a business. It is a learning process. I'm happy with the way things are starting to take shape.
I sew pretty things for girls and the home, I paint old furniture with good bones in the shabby/cottage/french country type of style and have lots of vintage finds and upcycled home decor.
Fresh Vintage by Amy is located at Building Character in Downtown Lancaster and Sweet Charity is on Main Street in Strasburg.
I have more exciting things to share but I won't turn this blog post into a novel.
God is good!
