How it all began...

...I quit smoking and found my hands were bored so, I went to work PT for a stained glass shop in the small town (Pop 703) that I lived in. It didn't take long to realize I had found my passion!

In 1996, I sold my business of 18 years, a bar in Stratford IA, called Bar None, and went to work doing stained glass full time at the local stained glass shop. 

In 1999 that business sold, so I started my own shop back in the town where I was born and raised.

The rest is history as they say...

I have 3 employees that I would be lost without, for the job has become too big for 1 person.

We have a gift shop that features only our products. We do custom work, and sell supplies to the public.

Working 70 hours a week is a breeze because I absolutely love my job. I never know what new challenges will come in the front door.
