Kent’s wife, Judi, now runs the office. Both their daughters grew up in the shop. Grandson,
Blake, now helps “Granddad” in the shop. Granddaughter Kaesi, the 4th generation for Smith
Sign Studio, 8th generation of family gilders, also contributes her creative talents. With more
grandchildren waiting in the wings, continuation seems assured.


“Wishes Fulfilled, Gifts ‘N’ Things” is an expansion of talents into a smaller format.  We create unique gifts, such as cutting boards, decals, figurines, mirrors, etched glass sun catchers, and wrought iron garden stands, as well as hand done needlework, poetry for special occasions, and all types of antique restoration.   In addition to the talents of current participants, we draw on the history of the original “Gifts ‘N’ Things” owned by Kent’s aunts, and on the ample selection of original artwork created by John Findlater, Judi’s father.  We enjoy doing what has never been done before – so if you have a handcrafted “wish” – contact us.
