Hellooooooo and welcome!
Array and Display is owned by a husband and wife team (Melissa and Clinton) who quit their soul-sucking Corporate jobs and moved to the country to live their lives as artists. And it all happened quite by accident!
The foundation of Array and Display was built upon a simple request. In the Summer of 2014, I was in need of quality jewelry displays to show my jewelry collection at Dallas Market. Finding none of quality that were made in the USA, I asked Clinton if he could make a few displays for me. One little board on a sawhorse in the backyard under the shade of an old Oak tree launched a business that would change our lives (the branch in our logo represents that tree in our backyard. I know! Awwww).
Less than 1 year later, we had outgrown 3 workshops, 2 studios and our first house! So we bought a small farm and moved our business into the country. Our 1910 farmhouse was nearly unlivable, but we were up for the challenge. As a result of completely remodeling this farmhouse ourselves, we now offer handcrafted home decor, much of which was inspired by our farmhouse. The entire remodel will be posted on the blog soon and I'm telling you with zero hint of modesty, it is freaking awesome, so subscribe to see the final reveal!
In 2016, I started a food blog from my new dream kitchen in our farmhouse (the blog closed because I didn't have time for it, booo). I searched for affordable, good quality food photography backdrops and found none, so again, I went to Clinton with a "honey-do" request which resulted in a new product line of 9 food photography background designs that sold out in the first week. You can find the original 9 in the shop and we'll be expanding that line again soon!
Array and Display started as a "what if?". What if I put this jewelry display online and see if anyone wants it? And because we dared to dream big and stare fear and potential failure in the face, we now live our dream life. Follow us on social media and subscribe to the blog for product updates and events as well as behind-the-scenes of our small business, our jaw-dropping farmhouse remodel and a peek at our never-a-dull-moment, handcrafted life on a small farm.
Check out my very first blog post for a sneak peek behind the scenes. They'll get better as I go, promise :)
