Handkerchief use is an art, but not a lost one, thanks to Lisa Goad who takes handkerchief art to a new level. Custom orders are her specialty.
We found the Maplewoodstock Music Festival in Memorial Park happening on Saturday when we got off at the train station on our way to lunch with longtime friends.
The Hanky Shoppe booth caught my eye, and made me nostalgic for handkerchief users I’ve known and loved in my life. I’ve quite a few hankies in my possession but haven’t been carrying one around with me lately.
Now I have a new beautifully machine embroidered one created by artist and master sewer and plan to add to my collection
Thank you, Lisa.
Here’s Lisa and her husband Matt, whose traditional handkerchief use and second wedding anniversary gift (cotton) of monogrammed handkerchiefs from Lisa inspired the start of The Hanky Shoppe.
