How about buying all your Christmas gifts on the Internet this year? It`s super comfortable, you can drink a cup of tea and cuddle in your blanket in front of the fireplace… No stress, sounds perfect! And do you know what`s even better? You can find all your gifts on one website: Etsy! I`m sure that each member of your family will be super happy with their present! Plus you did something good by supporting a handmade business… Christmas for everyone!
Today I introduce you to a special shop that makes gorgeous wooden things!
Here`s the interview with the owners of GastonMade:
Please tell us about yourself!
“We are Alex and Emily. We’re originally from Kansas, but have called Texas home for the last six years. We are partners in our business and in life, we’re getting married next June!”
What are you selling?
“We make un-fussy home goods for the modern space. Our aim is to make excellently crafted pieces that are attainable, functional, and beautiful.”
Where does this passion come from?
“Alex grew up learning the craft of woodworking from his father, and Emily is a designer for Fossil. Last year we rented out a studio space (on Gaston St!) with a group of artist friends as an outlet from our day jobs. Alex set up a small wood shop in the back and re-discovered his love for woodworking. We found that by combining our two creative minds, we could create something really special. We opened our Etsy that May and everything kind of exploded from there!”
What`s your favorite item in your shop?
“We literally use all of our items in our home everyday, so it’s hard to choose. But we’ll have to go with our Leggy Side Table. It’s illustrated in our logo, and it does a wonderful job of defining our brand. It is a beautiful, extremely functional, affordable piece. Everyone needs a bedside table right? We have one on either side of our bed and they do everything we need them to do without intruding on our space.”
Thank you so much Emily and Alex for showing us your work! I wish you all the best for your wedding, how exciting!
Love, Caroline ♥
