Melissa Rose, owner

Hi! My name is Melissa Rose and I am 29 years old living in West Hartford, CT. At my workplace, I am an engineer and often deal with numbers and equations. When I am at home, I love to read and do various arts & crafts projects. I wanted to unite my two hobbies to create glassware & accessories for book lovers just like me. I started my shop in May 2024 as a way for me to cultivate a creative outlet different from my engineering day job. I'm so excited to see what the future holds! Thank you so much for stopping by!
