October 3: Beary Creative

Meet Karen McElroy. Karen has been with us since we opened and we just love her fun creations, unique art, and lovely spirit. Come by check out Karen's creations! 



Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Karen McElroy. I love teddy bears. I collect them. I love spending my time creating items for Olde Town Consign. When I am not creating, I like to spend my time camping and kayaking.


What inspired you to start making your art? How long have you been making it?

I have been making things for as long as I can remember. I like making things for people who enjoy receiving them. I may have something at my house. I begin looking at the item and think “what can be done to it?”



What’s your favorite item to make?

I don’t have a favorite thing to create. I like creating many different things that people have never seen before. I create things that I think people will enjoy buying.


Tell us a little bit about the process of making that item.

I see an item and wonder how I can make it different. I may even look at the item for days before I finally decide what I want to do with it. I may even change my mind several times. I am happy when I see my finished product.



Why did you choose Olde Town Consign to showcase your items?

I just happened to stumble upon OTC one day. I began talking to Hope and the other girls that work there. I absolutely love the store and the kindness that comes with it. At Olde Town Consign, I feel at home and as if I have known Hope and the girls for forever.


Do you have any plans for the future? Upcoming New products?

I am always thinking of things to create. I never know what I will see next.



Is there anything else you want readers to know?

Come to Olde Town Consign, you never know what you might see. There’s nowhere else that you will have better customer service and better people that will wait on you. You will LOVE Olde Town Consign.
