Why it’s Amanda (that’s her to the left!) and who is Amanda? She's the little girl who sold handcrafted bracelets at the end of her driveway while her peers hawked warm lemonade at the corner. And while they counted spare change, she produced daily income and expense reports.
She's the woman who refuses to fall squarely into either the left-brain or right-brain camp, which bugs pragmatists and creatives to no end. In the end, though, she nearly always wins their respect and friendship rather than their scorn and envy.
She's a mother to two, with whom she roams their sprawling farmland and visits estate sales in search of images of other people's long forgotten loved ones.
She's a night owl and a true beach girl at heart who believes that:
... a glass of red wine should not be reserved for special occasions,
... there is nothing better than real Mexican food,
... history is alive and breathing all around us,
... rolling hills are more important than shopping malls,
She's the artist who launched her labor of love, Vintage Faerie, on February 14, 2004, so that she could bring lucky wishes and inspiration into other people's lives.
Vintage faerie has grown quickly in the past few years, however Amanda has always stayed true to her organic design wishes of handcrafting pieces on an individual basis. Vintage Faerie now employs a small staff of whom Amanda relies upon endlessly. Without them, Vintage Faerie could not be what it is today.
