Welcome to The Hanky Shoppe where the art of the handkerchief is my passion.
I started The Hanky Shoppe after not being able to find a quality, monogrammed handkerchief for my husband, to replace those that I had found for him as a wedding anniversary gift, earlier in our marriage. Since the traditional second wedding anniversary gift is cotton, I had wanted to get something unique and special for him. As my husband and I always have fun following traditional gifts for anniversaries with a sense of humor and uniqueness, I knew I wasn't going to gift a set of boxer shorts! I chose a set of monogrammed hankies. My husband treasured these and carried them everyday in his pocket as a reminder of our anniversary. When it came time to replace them, I could not find quality and unique handkerchiefs for him, so I went out and bought some plain white ones at a local department store and pulled out my sewing machine. I have always loved sewing and decided I would embroider my own messages and designs on them. Each one was created with a different message or pattern I knew he would love and treasure, and once again he was absolutely tickled. In that moment, I knew I had found my passion.
I have worked hard to source quality and durable handkerchiefs, and painstakingly embroider each design myself with great attention to detail. If there is a specific design or idea you have for a gift to your special someone, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is my distinct pleasure to offer my art to you.
