Good Morning! We wanted to take a second and share a fun story about our business. Many of you are new followers and we rarely get the chance to share who we are and what makes us The Family Roost❤️maybe someday we will share a pic of us😉our family business consists of our parents John and Beth and kids (adults) Jenni, Emily, and John Anthony. Jenni also has a golden retriever Bodie who sneaks into photos from time to time. Our dad started his business in 1993 when he felt called to make his creativity a business and travel to craft shows selling his work. A trademark that sets his work apart is that he signs his work at the bottom with the year it was created. He sold his work throughout the Chicago suburbs and eventually throughout the Midwest. Our family moved to Michigan in 2003 and we took a break from wood working for a few years. Us kids went off to college and started our own careers and had in the back of our minds and in our hearts a desire to bring dads work back and mix it in with some our own style of vintage and farmhouse finds. In 2015 we started the business and changed the name from Wooden Memories to The Family Roost. In the past few years we have run across our dads pieces at estate sales, thrift stores, and rustic magazines and each time have marveled at the fact that his signature still remained and that some of his work is now considered collector pieces and “vintage”. We love hearing how people collect his work and add to it as the seasons change and seeing a collection just makes us smile from ear to ear. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for stopping in and saying hello at markets, shopping at stores we are in, and inspiring and encouraging us daily. You make it so worth getting out of bed each day and going to work knowing we get to create and share pieces of who we are. Pumpkins have changed a bit from the original design back in 1993, but what hasn’t is the creator behind each design❤️we have a few shows coming up and we would love to see you there!
I’m at the @seattlegiftshow this weekend!
I tell people all day that I live in these pieces and that I have a ton of fun making them. It gets a little repetitive and probably sounds like a big ‘ole sales pitch but GUESS WHAT - it’s true. I wear these clothes day in and day out because I made them to be comfortable and cozy and breathable and functional (read: pockets). I made them in my favorite colors and prints because that’s what I wanted to see more of.
But mostly, I made them because it feeds my soul. I can’t really explain it and I’m getting teary writing this, but making these clothes is my work. It’s hard and takes a lot of sacrifice and half the time (ok probably more like 80%) I’m exhausted and overworked and not my best self. But it is worth it to do my tiny part in taking down fast fashion, all the while making my heart sing. It’s the best hardest job a girl could ask for ❤️❤️❤️❤️
