One of the things we are most excited about with the upcoming Spring Boutique is having enough space to fit all of these wonderful vendors! Emily Ruth contacted us just before our Holiday Boutique last fall, but we would have had the fire marshal on our backs for sure if we'd tried to squeeze one more table into our tiny space! So we are thrilled to finally get to work with her! Here's a bit about Emily Ruth:
"I have been collecting letters since I was a little girl, scouring estate sales and arranging and rearranging them in my room. And quotes? I love quotes! I love how just a few words can be so inspiring and encouraging. I have found a super fun way to combine my love for letters and quotes. I call them mash-ups (yep, I'm a Glee fan)! Great quotes and cool mixes of letters arranged on a canvas with fun little bits and bobbles. Every part of my creations is made from repurposed and recycled items. I get to go to estate sales and thrift stores to find canvases, letters, games, rulers, and lots of cool odds and ends. Then, I pair them up with an awesome quote, and a mash-up is born! I even do custom orders if you've got a quote that you love. Every step of the way from thrifting to creating to meeting customers makes me so happy...and you can quote me on that!"
