Huckleberry Hut

OK...this is MY art blog, but I'd be remiss if I didn't introduce my DH & our little cottage business. His name is Ron, & our business is called Huckleberry Hut. We celebrate arts & crafts~if it ain't fun, we don't do it! We make everything from baskets using invasive species, to handmade paper using recycled & natural materials, to greeting cards using that handmade paper to traditional crafts, to ornaments, to jewelry to...well, whatever we want! So here's a little pic of Ron with some of the baskets he made awhile back. Hi, honey!

Now, back to MY art! Which is a whole other thing! :)

Hi CC: was wondering if you have a web-site for Huckleberry Hut ?? cause I'd love to see your handmade paper, I too love all things including making my own signature books with handmade paper. I have never made my own paper but love to see and buy someone elses hard endeavors : ) thanks for sharing the beautiful picture of your mangos, they are ever sooo tasty, too bad you can't eat them : (
Love to you, Sandra : )

Handmade paper is awesome & Rons are the coolest. I bet you could sell "some of those sheets"....
Having made paper in the past I know a lot of work goes into making the batches. Now with the weather cooling down here I might just have to make some out on the deck.
The baskets that you make are lovely, can one order those to & have them shipped over to the mainland? What are most of them made of?

See what happens when you let the cat out of the bag about "Hucklebbery Hut"...we are want more information :-)

Thanks for sharing

Hi, Sandra, KV, Helene, & Jotee!
No, we don't have a website, cuz we just do wholesale locally. We only sell at the local Kokee Natural History Museum gift shop & a couple other stores. We are affiliated with the Kauai Made program which you can check out at:
http://www.kauaimade.net/ You'll find us over on the West side.

However, you can email me at hrhcc@hawaii.rr.com & I could send you some pics of the kind of baskets, paper, etc that we make. I'm sure we could work something out!

With aloha,
CC
