Tim and Tonya Nichols live in Perry, Oklahoma where they opened their family business, Crafty Concepts, in 2009. They enjoy handcrafting various items from signs to furniture. You can find their items online and at various craft shows in Oklahoma and Texas.

“We have always enjoyed making gifts and crafts,” says Tonya. “Back in 2009 we had the idea to open a store where local artists could sell their items. At the time, there were not any stores like that,” she continues. “Now, you see this type of store everywhere. Every year we added new equipment, new techniques and strived to produce new and exciting products. In the beginning, we started out using vinyl. Now we only use paint and handcraft every item from start to finish in our workshop. Many of our ideas come from customer requests. They will have an idea and we make it into reality.”

Tim and Tonya also sell their quality-handcrafted, Made in the U.S.A. products wholesale, to sellers and vendors across the country. “One of our best-selling items is our birthday calendar,” says Tonya. “A few years back, a customer saw one and wanted us to make a custom board for her family.” The calendars are made with real cedar wood and quality wooden discs. The hanging system for the board is an original idea that Tim came up with. “We hated the idea of the little jump rings that you had to open and close,” says Tonya. “They ended up misshapen and ugly and were hard to work with. Our system uses an ‘earring like’ hanger that can be easily rearranged without tools. Our system also works with any type of birthday calendar.”

In addition to their signature birthday and celebration calendar, Crafty Concepts also offers wooden signs in unique designs. Other popular lines include their “Let’s Be Honest” series, wine series, and coffee series.
