Today's Featured Artist: Andrea Baker, creator of Handmade by Andrea Baker

 

Today’s featured artist is Andrea Baker, creator of Handmade by Andrea Baker.

 

 

Tell us a little about yourself and your business:

 

I truly enjoy taking my creativity and crafting it into something that can be held. Creating gives me a way to make something that can be held and potentially passed down from generation to generation. Crafting for me is also a great way to unwind and relax. My work is unique because each piece is something that I've envisioned and therefore has a bit of me and my very own touch in it.

 

 

What made you get started in your business?:

 

Sparked by the desire for a new handbag that nobody else had, I went to work on creating my very own design. I have received so many compliments on my unique creation that all signs pointed to opening shop of my own.

 

 

Anything else you’d like to share:

 

I love to create classy, functional and affordable handmade items with service that is unmatched.

Tell us about your favorite item currently listed in your shop:

 

I'm in love with my Vintage Chic collection. A piece of vintage you can carry around with you every day!

 

 



 

 

 

 

My favorite from Andrea Baker:

 

Andrea’s shop is full of fabulous goodies, so narrowing it down to one favorite was hard.  The warm colors and funky print of the Payton tote are what pushed it ahead of the rest.  I could totally see myself carrying it everyday and smiling every time I picked it up.
