One of our most special vendors is Ann Marie Murray. I had the pleasure of meeting Ann Marie Murray last January in Atlanta. She is a wonderfully warm woman with such talent. She lives and works in Pennsylvania and hand paints some of the prettiest porcelain items.
She is one of the vendors that I am most looking forward to seeing again in Atlanta. Meeting people like Ann Marie Murray is one of the best things about owning my store. Her items are on my "wish list" for Atlanta as well.
Ann Marie Murray's hand painted trays, bowls, plates and more are such perfect, special gifts and they come in all price points. She has the perfect Baptism gifts (which I always think are a little difficult), like this dish that says "Grow in Grace."
An item we always keep in stock are her ring dishes. We have them in pink, green and blue. We also have the pink and green ones with the single letter initial. Perfect for an engagement gift! Although there are a few other stores in Austin that carry these ring dishes, Hayden Avery is about to start carrying one that no one else in town has... Check back with me in a few months.
One of the things that I personally want (and can't wait to look at in person again) are her single initial dinner plates. I think these would be so special to have. They'd also be a special gift to give. What's not to love about these plates?
