About The Owner

The Burlap Shack started from my imagination! I developed a fascination for neck-tie patterns and wanted to find a purpose for the many abandoned ties I was finding in area thrift stores. One night I twisted a neck tie onto a pencil in the shape of a rose and the rest is history! I started making the roses for widows in my church out of their husband's ties that they would give me. My rose creating quickly turned in to a full time venture, that I LOVE! I opened The Burlap Shack store front in March of 2014 and have never looked back. Throughout the 4 years that my store has been open, a lot has changed, but my passion for creating and my love for the neck tie rose has not waivered.

The Burlap Shack is filled with unique creations and everything I love!  I enjoy giving new life to those things that have been rendered useless, like the old neck-ties.  Each stock neck-tie rose comes with a card with The Original Story of the Tie Rose attached to it, a story I wrote about getting a new chance at life! 

I am in the business of people and enjoy creating one of a kind pieces for my customers to share with their friends and loved ones. Come as a customer and leave as a friend. 

We hope to see you at The Shack soon!
