I’m a wife, mother and grandmother enjoying life in the Heartland of America. I like sewing new treasures or re-purposing gently used fabrics, crocheting, photography, beautiful quilts and fun jewelry. I also enjoy the hunt for a great vintage find and researching the story behind each piece. I’m always looking for a better way to organize just about anything and everything. And…revamping recipes to cook with food allergies is a must!
I am the shop owner of 2aEmporium, formerly named TwoArtisans, an Etsy Shop that combines Vintage Treasures with Homemade Treasures. The shop contributors for 2aEmporium span three generations of family. Our goal is your complete satisfaction!!
A recent interview with Mrs. A regarding 2aEmporium…
“I grew up hearing stories about living during The Great Depression and listening to the music of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. My dad collected many vintage and antique items through the years. Some of them were pieces woven into our family history, and I enjoyed hearing the family stories behind them. Those items are not for sale, but those stories were both enlightening and entertaining. They helped cultivate the appreciation for the history behind each vintage piece.
My mother and both of my grandmothers were accomplished seamstresses. I think they were re-purposing and up-cycling in their day more out of necessity than a choice of style. Many of the vintage fabrics that are being used for our pillow covers have come from the abundant fabric supply I inherited from them. We carry on the family tradition of skillfully hand-crafting items with love. Each handmade item has its own story. Much thought and time has been given to each piece.”
