We are suckers for stationery and paper goods, so we are so happy to be welcoming always, by amber to ReBash on Sunday May 15th, 2016. Amber will be selling her custom stationery goodies at Toronto's Raddest Wedding Market and we hope you'll join us to see her lovely work in person!
Tell us about your business/craft.
always, by amber specializes in wedding, bridal and baby shower paper goods and decor - from wedding invitations, to escort cards, table numbers, guest books, baby shower memory books, bridal shower invitations and everything in between! I love working with clients to bring their visions to life! The shop is ever expanding so new items are added all the time. Absolutely everything is 100% handmade, so there's a lot of love that goes into everything I make!
How did you get started?
Ever since I was a little girl I've always loved to make things. Chances are if you've ever received a gift from me, it was handmade - so naturally, starting my own business has always been a dream of mine. When I got engaged in 2014 and started making everything for the big day, I really fell in love with all things wedding. At the same time that I was planning my own wedding, I decided there was no better time to open up my online shop. At first I featured predominately paper products like wedding invitations and guest books, but I've since expanded to included wedding decor, as well as both baby and bridal shower items. After receiving so many compliments from family and friends that attended our wedding, I was really encouraged to keep going with my business, so here I am today!
What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
Hmmm, this is a good question. Despite doing this for over a year now, this will actually be my first time ever participating as a vendor at a show. I'm really excited to be joining ReBash's team this year and can't wait to meet some awesome people!
What is your personal favourite piece out of your own collection and why?
I have a lot of favorite items, but I think for me a lot of it comes down to colour combinations. I LOVE rustic weddings, so some of the kraft and lace invitation suites I offer are always a favourite. I also love both grey and yellow and grey and blush invitations - they are such beautiful color combinations. And (non-wedding related), my baby shower guest books and memory books are always fun to make!
Who/what inspires you?
I am inspired by small business owners - it's not easy to go out and market yourself. Running your own business is a lot of work, but it's so rewarding. I can't help but feel incredibly flattered when a couple chooses me to create their wedding invitations or a someone purchases a guest book for a baby shower. It might sound a little cheesy, but it really is an honour to create items for such special occasions!
What can guests at ReBash expect to see from you at the event?
I will be displaying a lot of paper goods (wedding invitations, save the dates, guest books, table numbers, escort cards) as well as paper goods and rustic wedding decor items for purchase! I also plan on sneaking some baby shower goodies in there too! If you're attending the show and want me to create something customized for you to bring to the show, please give me a shout ! You can also follow me on Instagram and Facebook! Can't wait for May 15th!
