Branching out

One of the first ideas I had for the store was to use branches for the garment racks. I have always loved birch trees and I would collect small branches, or pieces of trunk to keep for a rainy day to craft with. I started to see wood grain patterns appearing everywhere from fabric to rugs and candles to rings and vases!

So in thinking environmentally thrifty I created these stand-out pieces! (Correction – I let professional craftsmen create them – thanks Dad and Hal!)
