Saturday's Seller

Today, Kim of Irish Rose Creations, honored me as Saturday's Seller on The Steamer Trunk's Blog.

A little about The Steamer Trunk:

Essentially, The Steamer Trunk has been created as a co-op advertising initiative to promote artisans from all backgrounds who have a sincere talent and desire to keep the past alive through their artistic creations. Symbolically, The Steamer Trunk represents tomorrow's heirlooms.

At the height of the immigration period during the early 1900's, people from all walks of life left their homes to embark on a journey full of hope and promise. Often these people packed very little and perhaps only a handful of their most cherished possessions: a lace doily, an embroidered hankerchief, a quilt made by a family member, or a locket given for a special occasion. These cherished items became their family heirlooms and were passed down from one generation to the next. In today's world of high tech gadgets and disposable items, we often overlook the value of handmade items.

Here at The Steamer Trunk, we are making it our mission to provide shoppers with their next family heirloom. Each week we will be featuring artisans and their unique hand-made items that are destined to become a family heirloom.

Whether you're looking for wedding, birthday, or holiday gifts, or just something to enhance your home decor, stop by The Steamer Trunk and consider what these talented artisans have to offer. Don't just give a gift...give a gift destined to become a family heirloom!

We also have a Ning Social Network, if you'd like to join.
