Welcome to my world of Bits & Bobs!
It's a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I took my love for re-using vintage items, collage work and working with stained glass and brought them together... Hope you like what you see.
Located in The Woodlands, Texas, Bits & Bobs is a brand created by Lorraine Richardson.
Bit & Bobs was kind of a side project to give me a creative outlet while I worked being an event coordinator and executive director for a local non-profit. After 14 years working for this same company, in December of 2013 I lost my job. I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to grow Bits & Bobs into more than just a "hobby".
I have always had a passion for art, creating things and repurposing old forgotten things. About 20 or so years ago, I took a stained glass class and fell in love. What started out as a tinkering with stained glass morphed into making small ornaments, blending stained glass techniques and collage. Now, Bits & Bobs has become an eclectic mix of found vintage/antique bits mixed with soldered glass techniques... a little bit of leather and copper thrown in for good measure... giving old things a new story and life.
In 2014 I spent a lot of time doing small shows in the Houston area, learning the ropes, so to speak. In 2015 I booked bigger shows, shows that are more fitting for my type of work, with the right demographic. I'm on my way to spreading the word about and growing Bits & Bobs. My goal, and my dream for many years, is to eventually have my own store front... not just to sell my wares, but to have a makers shop that focuses on local artisans and hosts classes to teach others a craft.
