Winning the Martha Stewart American Made Audience Choice award was so thrilling. There were the obvious perks, such as the $10,000 grand prize, the all-expenses paid trip to New York City, the chance to meet Martha Stewart and tour her headquarters, the heightened exposure for my handcrafted coastal metal sculptures. But upon arrival to the awards weekend, I soon realized that […]
Clearly I am not able to keep up with the large retailers during the Holiday season. However, the Christmas Holidays bring in so many orders in a short period of time that it allows me to offer a 10% off three day “group” discount which am always thankful to offer.
Starting tomorrow, everything on my website is offered at 10% off the retail price. This discount will only last through “Cyber Monday” and this is the only time of year where I am able to offer this discount. I hope everyone wanting to give an original, handcrafted gift this year is poised to take advantage of this annual holiday special. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everyone! – Chase Allen

Did you know that Spartina 449, the nationally celebrated women’s hand bag & coastal apparel brand, had their first model shoot for their first line of handbags at my gallery on Daufuskie Island(see photo below). Kay Stanley, owner of Spartina 449, has been a good friend, neighbor, and customer. To be quite honest, Kay is an inspiration to me because she has a track record of success but most importantly, she works with a smile and gets the job done. In a short amount of time, this savy businesswomen has built Spartina 449 into a nationally recognized brand. So in short, my welding mask is off to Kay for her vision and hard work. I am proud to have played a tiny part in the beginning of this play. Congrats and here’s to your future.
