Bethany Lowe DESIGNS

The Precious Possum - Bethany Lowe DESIGNS

Bethany Lowe Designs is a small family-owned business that began in 1985 with the artist’s vision of creating unique, original, vintage-style folk art and holiday designs for the wholesale industry. At that time, very few companies were creating this distinct style and look.

Early years were devoted to making Bethany’s limited edition and one-of-a-kind Santa Claus figures, studio-made ornaments, and Christmas decorations.

A trendsetter in the early “country lodge” look, she discovered that import companies were reproducing her new ideas and were able to reach a larger audience by mass-producing their product.

In 1997 Bethany decided to travel overseas to see if high-quality handmade designs could be produced at a more reasonable price. After two years of working with different manufacturers in different countries, she was able to replicate her designs while maintaining the quality that her customers had come to expect. She now had two distinct lines: her artist-made folk figures and the “holiday home” collection. Stores were excited to discover that there were now price levels for everyone, and the imported line was very well-received. In addition to the Christmas products, the nostalgic collections grew to include the Valentine’s Day, Easter, July 4th, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day, Birthday, Wedding, and Thanksgiving holidays. Designs were made in papier-mâché, paper pulp, resin, tin, hand-dyed and appliquéd wool, cotton batting, mercury glass, pottery, wood and vintage reproduction papers. Sales increased to include every state in the country as well as overseas.

Whether you are a new customer or an old friend, you will find our growing collection of holiday memorabilia and vintage reproductions is inspired by Bethany’s passion for anything old with a story to tell, and her love of original folk art. To that end, she is working with some of the most innovative and creative folk artists in the country, bringing their wonderful handmade designs to a broader public.

Bethany Lowe Designs was proud to be named Country Business “Vendor of the Year” for 2009.

Originality, creativity, and a sense of design continues to keep Bethany Lowe Designs in the forefront of the marketplace — featuring the collectibles of today inspired by holidays past.
