Exhibitor profile . . .

Dean Hicks is an antique dealer who also happens to have quite the creative side.  
Dean began selling antiques in 1975, dealing mostly in Christmas and holiday wares.
He joined the "Seville Antique Mall" about 10 years ago when his interest turned 
to primitives.  When he's not out on the hunt for "junk" as he lovingly calls it,
Dean is home creating whimsical and early style signs.
One such jaunt turned up a great old piece of wood on which he 
envisioned the words "Miss Emmas Dressmaking".  Such was the
beginning of a new passion, and an expanded vocabulary!
 Dean was one of the original From Our Hands exhibitors circa 1999.

Plans and projects . . .

Much planning has been going on behind the scenes for the
From Our Hands and hearts show!  
Rebekah and I are overwhelmed at the response and support
for this endeavor of ours . . . we almost wish it was November already!
(Oh bite my tongue . . .  did I really say that after the winter we just had?)
It's just that we are excited and we hope you are too!

In addition to the show planning we have been working on a little secret side project 
inspired by our show name.
Enjoy a little sneak peek!


Fondly,
Lori Ann & Rebekah
