Today we feature Anita Chapman, who passionately described the various pieces of art that her and her husband Brad have been creating for many years.
Thank you for being an exhibitor at the 2019 PA Christmas & Gift Show. Is this your first time, or are you a returning exhibitor?
This is the first time I will be exhibiting at the PA Christmas & Gift Show.
Welcome! We think you will really like it here.
What types of unique products will you have at the show?
We have many hand painted gifts to choose from. We have everything from hand crafted and hand painted furniture to antique milk cans, old kerosene heaters made into lamps, teapots, paintings, etc. We have a really neat solar lamp post with snowmen, flags, sunflowers, etc., and we do custom personalization as well. All items are original pieces of one of a kind artwork.
They sound really different! How long have you been making and selling these handmade items?
I have been painting for 32 years. My husband started working with me full-time in 1995. He builds beautiful pine furniture, and I finish it and put my artwork on them. We have traveled all over doing juried Art and craft shows for a living. We love our work, and there is nothing more satisfying than a happy customer!
>That’s great to hear. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?
I love to be able to create something that the customers are excited to give as a gift to a loved one. Christmas is a magical time of year that brings out the best in people.
I’m sure our customers will be excited to see what you have. Is there anything else you would like to say to everyone coming to the show?
Be sure to stop by and see us! We are excited to be here and look forward to meeting you! Hopefully you will find that special gift for that loved one that means so much!
Thanks, Anita! We hope you enjoy your first visit with us.
ANITA AND BRAD CHAPMAN will be at booths 1450 & 1451. Please give them a warm welcome to the PA Christmas Show family!
