Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Posted by Colleen on 9th Jan 2023

A new year always feels like a fresh start. The calendar change brings with it a newness full of hope and possibilities. I typically make a long list of resolutions and goals for both my business and personal life. However, this year I decided to do something different and instead take a break from looking and "goaling" so far into the future to just try to appreciate what is in front of me.

I have been making handkerchiefs since 2008. It was a side hustle for many of those years. I was working a corporate job in visual marketing and during that time my husband and I had two children. After having our second child, I left the corporate world to be home with my littles and take small steps towards my dream of creating a bespoke embroidery gift business.

While being exclusively online, The Handkerchief Shop has grown over the years. This year I am so excited to announce that I am creating a showroom space for you! A place for us to set up an appointment to meet or zoom to talk about how we can turn your custom designs and ideas into lovely, meaningful gifts and of course handkerchiefs. You will be able to enjoy touching and seeing our embroidery work and materials. You will also be able to pick up local orders.

I am so excited to share more with you in the coming months! Thank you to everyone who has supported The Handkerchief Shop over the years. I appreciate it more than you know. I will announce when I will start taking appointments later this year. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to me with your gifting needs. I am happy to help!
