My kids tell me its time to get posting here on “The Gram” or “Insta” or whatever this new hippy dippy place you crazy kids are on 👨🏼🦳! I just figured out my own FB page this year! Now I have Instagram, Facebook business pages and VIP group, Etsy, PayPal, and the Twitter? Not sure about that one yet, but I bet that’s coming too!
that the date is set for the launch of Papa’s Prop Shop! So why newborn Props? Well, I have been watching my daughter @lisamarie_photography taking beautiful photos of the cutest babies the past 10 years. Recently she asked me to make her a little bed for one of her sessions. To reference, we checked out some examples and started showing me the props she’s ordered from all over North America........ AND THEN I SAW THE PRICES! #youpaidhowmuch ??? So I made my first little bed that Lisa had asked for and this tiny little side table to match. I couldn’t believe how tiny it was! But i had a blast adding my own design and structure knowledge, because I wanted her props to last!
After that first bed and side table, the ideas just kept coming to me. And now I’m hooked! Since I’m semi retired from my contracting business, and been enjoying this so much, I decided to set up shop, and have been creating baby props for Lisa, and also custom home furnishings for my family.
And the twist is. Every piece of wood that I use is 100% repurposed, reused, recycled, or personally recovered that would have been thrown into landfills. Every single piece.
The more I dove into this world and listened to Lisa speak about the different challenges she’s had on getting some of the props she wanted into Canada, the costs of shipping and duty, and how there was very limited local prop shops here, the more I realized that I might be able to help fill a need!
So with the support of my family and with my love of wood working, I’m very excited to open Papa’s Prop Shop (and custom home furnishings)! Thank you all for your support! I look forward to doing business with you!
