We, that being Diane and Richard, decided to enter the entrepreneur world, the small business world, after spending a year attending craft shows and assisting our daughter in law with the merchandizing and sales of her teething and accessory product line. Our desire to help H&H Baby Chews resulted in our desire to have our own product line that would complement H&H Baby Chews and build the H&H brand overall.
Loved meeting other vendors at the shows. We admired their work and were so impressed with their dedication to their product and their tenacity. We saw many unique and diverse hand made products. What was missing? What could we add to the handmade market that was different?
So why not come up with something and we did.
We created H&H Creations with our first product being the swing shelf, stylized after the Scandinavian design. We designed several prototypes, then tested them with friends and family. Received both positive and negative feedback, made modifications and finalized the designs.
Our goal is to design products, that are handmade by us, that could be used by any age, any gender, with no limitations as to where it could be used in the home, and most importantly was reasonably priced. Each product is an original. Each of our creations is a one of a kind. No stock. Each hand made when ordered.
Since the first swing shelf, we have added the rustic line of shelves, the farmhouse distressed décor line, a variety of garlands, our little pom pom dollies and more to come.
Who knew being retired would lead to this! Both of us are in this 100%, from buying the raw materials, to creating the designs, to making the product, and thinking through how best to display the product.
Building the H&H brand – first H&H Baby Chews, now H&H Creations – what's next?
The sky is the limit as to what “boomer entrepreneurs” can do.
