Rack and Ruined custom clock

Rack and Ruined is a small business creating one-of-a-kind art and home decor from wood, antlers, and repurposing. And before you tell you more, I have to admit to more than a little bias towards his work, as the owner, Jon Hepworth, happens to be my Dad. Formerly a missionary to Ireland for 13 years, he now works at a saw mill in northern-mid Michigan which gives him access to some really beautiful woods. Due to the uniqueness of the materials, every piece is a one-of-a-kind. At Rack and Ruined, you can find everything from lamps and clocks to baskets and buttons. Whether you’re a hunter, or just love that rustic look, Rack and Ruined is perfect for you!

Rack and Ruined really does have a huge range of product types from larger pieces like lamps, shelves, baskets, canes, and clocks to smaller items like keychains, buttons, ice cream scoops, pizza cutters, and even dog chews! Know what you want, but haven’t been able to find it? Custom orders are certainly a possibility.

Also, if you happen to be in Michigan around Thanksgiving, Rack and Ruined will be participating in the Chesaning Music Booster Arts & Crafts held in the Chesaning middle-school and high-school the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving. (He’ll be in the main room of the middle-school.) Hope you consider dropping by!

Drift wood lamp by Seaside Home Accents

The artist behind Seaside Home Accents is Allison Wiberg. For 10 years, she worked in her family’s lampshade manufacturing plant before she decided to go out on her own. Allison loves the beauty of the natural world and so, like many artists, she finds her inspiration looking at nature. Seaside Home Accents currently has three lines of products: driftwood lamps, tea light holders, and seed paper art cards (paper used to make the cards contain seeds in them so if planted the cards will grow).

Much of the material she uses, Allison finds and collects herself while enjoying the outdoors with her children. What material she doesn’t find herself, she purchases as locally as possible.
