Longtime readers of this blog know that Hugh's family hardware business is a huge part of our lives; my in-laws purchased the business 37 years ago, relocating their family from the East Coast and settling into rural Colorado knowing hardly a soul.
Owning and operating a small business in this world's economy is no small feat, so I am always encouraging and supportive of the people I know who also try to make a go of it. Recently, my niece (y'all know her here as the Rodeo Princess) opened an Etsy store, where she is selling handcrafted items utilizing beads and leather. Her business, Buckin Wild Beadwork has taken off and we could not be more proud of her.
She specializes in western-themed items, but, is ridiculously creative and able to customize her work to suit any taste.
Of course, my favorite piece is the beanie that she made me for Christmas...
...it's seriously adorable (and warm! I've worn it all throughout this neverending winter that Colorado has seen fit to throw at us).
If you're looking for unique, one-of-a-kind items, you can't go wrong with Buckin' Wild Beadwork!
P.S. I am in no way, shape, or form being compensated for this post (homey don't play that), I am just ridiculously proud of my niece and couldn't pass up the opportunity to brag on her a bit. And, like I said at the beginning of the post, operating a small business is tough; every bit of support helps.
