We  are so happy to introduce you to a new member of the Brickhouse Family.....Nancy Binns and her wonderful wood carvings! Tim and I met Nancy when we did the craft show at the Armstrong Valley Winery. We fell in love with her and her carvings. And we are pleased to announce that the Brickhouse now carries some of Nancy's carvings! Stop by the Shop and see Nancy's Santas and ornaments.....we know you will fall in love with her carvings, too. And you can find Nancy on FaceBook at: Nancy binns-Folk Artist-Woodcarver. We told Nancy that we wanted to brag about her and we asked if she could tell us a little about herself....We are pleased to introduce you to Nancy Binns:

Self taught folk artist, I began carving in 1985 after seeing some carvings by a West Virginia carver, inspired to create and since then have been carving regularly. I enjoy carving Santa's and have found a whole world of collectors with an amazing variety of the big guys.

My carvings are whimsical and have a feeling of humor, probably like me, never too serious and always looking for the brighter side of life.

I have carved thousands of Santa's as well as ornaments of birds and Christmas themed hanging keepsakes. They're all over the world.....standing on shelves and gathered for children to mark occasions.

Each carving is unique and one of a kind, carved by hand over a few days, then painted and signed. With a sharp knife and an idea a character is born to go off in the world, hopefully to create a smile and last a life time.


Welcome Nancy, we are so happy to have you join our family here at the Brickhouse!
