9 Days Until Christmas! Are you Ready??

Posted 12/15/2014

This tree is just the beginning of what you'll see when you stop in By Mountain Hands!  New inventory is still coming in so each visit will be unique to you!  Perhaps it's just a small gift you are looking for; after all, we are all on a budget!  We have just the thing to help you with your special gift, whether it's a handmade ornament, cute candle in a vintage tea cup, a card, jewelry, bird houses, gifts for children, soaps, oils, paintings, framed prints, lace doilies (remember those?), and so much more.

  • Local businesses have generated 65% of the country’s net new jobs over the past 17 years — US Small Business Administration

We need your continued support to stay alive in 2-0-1-5 !  Thanks, in advance!!

By Mountain Hands would like to thank everyone who came out to our Black Friday Two Day Event. Black Friday and Small Business Saturday were fantastic!   We were glad to see lots of people we knew and enjoyed the socializing. We're glad everyone enjoyed the cider and homemade cookies!    There are still a lot of great sale items at the store. We'd like the opportunity of helping you finish your holiday shopping. Remember, shop local and shop small; help support your home town folks, artisans and crafters. Unique, hand crafted, one of a kind items are a delight to receive.

That being said, we hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season. May we continued to be blessed with all the meaningful things in our lives.

See you soon ... at By Mountain Hands!

The "Back Room"!

Posted 11/21/2014

We have a little secret at By Mountain Hands. It's called.... The Back Room. We've gathered together all kinds of crafting supplies that we've had around for a while. There are craft books and magazines galore (for jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing/quilting, altered arts, paper crafting and other topics); there's also items for papercrafting, scrapbooking, jewelry making (beads, findings, wooden beads); things for painting and small woodworking; decor crafts, holiday crafts, candle making... and other stuff, too. 

Please stop on by and see if there's anything you can use. If so, it's yours.... and if you care to, you can leave a donation for the store. Thank you and looking forward to seeing you!!
