Location: Lake Arrowhead, California

Hello! My name is Lisa and I live in Lake Arrowhead, California. We are located 18 miles above San Bernardino in the San Bernardino mountains. Lake Arrowhead is the manzanita capitol!

I opened a store on Etsy in 2013 called FairyKoolTreasures. It consisted of handmade and vintage jewelry. A year later, I added handsanded manzanita branches for pet habitats such as aquariums, terrariums, aviaries, snake cages, etc. Since then, I have sold every piece that I have ever put in my store! I also added handmade coasters. They are approx. 4" coasters made from cedar wood. I draw a design on them and then I woodburn them.

In February 2017, I opened a new store called KodyZone. It features only the manzanita. I figured that no one wanted to sort through a jewelry store while looking for manzanita! It was one of the best moves I have made! I have had a few sales, but higher dollar amounts. I have at least 10 to 40 people a day look at my store. If I had more items in it, I would be selling a lot of it. I am working on that as we speak. I am actually putting together and working on an order I got in the first week for an aviary.

My next move was also in February 2017. I opened a store called KodyConesandCoasters. It was there that I featured the Coulter Pines cones, the biggest pine cones in the world, and the coasters. I have done fairly well with this one also.

I have always thought about making guitar stands with some of the exceptional manzanita that I find on a daily basis. While doing research on them, I ran across this site and that is how I got here today!

I just finished my first guitar stand. It is different than others that I have seen and that is because it is one solid piece of beautiful manzanita. I just clear coated it and I am waiting for it to dry. I am going to post pictures for opinions. I am nervous about it but excited at the same time. If it sells fast and for a good price, I am going to do one a week. Lets hope this new venture goes well!
