On July 18, 2020 at 4:56PM, we welcomed a sweet new addition to our life. Meet Mary Charles! I have a feeling she will be getting paint on those little hands in no time. . .
Oconee Sign Shack was born on a chilly December night. We had moved into our "Forever" home that came equipped with a massive wood burning stove straight from the 80's. I was bound and determined to attempt to heat the house the entire winter using only this stove. I wanted to be pioneer woman-like. My husband informed me that we would need more storage for wood if I was going to do that, so he built this adorable little wood shed. I wanted a sign to hang on my wood shed and I wanted it to read "The Wood Shack." However, I couldn't find one that existed and when I looked up custom ordering a sign, I realized quickly that it would take a millionaire to afford what the going rate is these days. So, I made my own. On real wood. With real hands. And I loved it so much that I kept on making signs. Before we knew it they were taking over the kitchen. I was covered in stain and paint. I listed a few on eBay and it took off faster than a pregnant woman going after an ice cream and pickle truck. I was "meeting" some of the greatest people through my eBay sales. Customers that have become part of my life in such a short time. Knowing that I had created something with my own two hands that brought such enjoyment to people gave me the greatest sense of gratification. And it still does. Enjoy taking a look at the signs and if you need me, just follow the footprints in the sawdust. I will be there.
