The Wooden Nickel's Story
When I was younger I spent a lot of time with my grandparents. One thing they would always say in parting was: "See ya again soon, and don't take any wooden nickels!" That phrase always stuck with me, and conjures up feel good memories & love when I hear it. So, when we were pondering names for our resale shop, 'The Wooden Nickel' just felt so energetically right.
All of our creations are made with intentions of love & abundance. Most of our items are repurposed and renewed, and that starts with a bottom layer of affirmations, positive qoutes, & book text that is either written directly on the piece, or glued down as a foundation. We start every single piece with this high vibing energy and keep building the layers upon that. Here at The Wooden Nickel, we know that we are creating our own reality. We also know that we are contributing to universal consciousness, so we consciously create unique pieces that will not only add beauty to your sacred space, but will also raise the vibration of your spaces. This process begins when we find something that energetically speaks to us. This could be anything from a piece of furniture someone has tossed away, to a lonely old canvas in a thrift store, to an old box of silverware at a yard sale. We see past what something once was, and only see possibilities of how awesome it can become!
We create household items, jewelry, furniture, pottery, and mixed media art. We also have a passion for old books & we've discovered the love of altering a book and turning it into original artwork. We are currently located in the Hill Country of Texas (local areas include Dripping Springs, Wimberley, Austin, Johnson City, Blanco, San Marcos, & Kyle) for local pick up of larger items. We are also available for custom home projects! Just drop us a email.
