COVINO: REFURNISH NEW TREASURES

This is the first time Nancy’s Fancies from Boston, NY will be at the Shaker Woods Festival. Nancy Covino and her husband Ed collaborate on a wide variety of projects together. They mainly sell furniture items, which Ed makes using vintage windows and doors and then are painted by Nancy using a variety of distressed techniques. Some of their pieces are refurbished and repurposed vintage finds.

They scour auctions and estate sales, picking up an endless array of items for projects, such as old barnwood and hardware. Nancy’s practice of collecting used treasures began with her late father when she was young. She said, “We would go to the junkyard on Saturday mornings where he would find things to fix up for the house or car or yard. I learned to appreciate the smell of fresh sawdust at an early age.” Today, she and her husband still use one of his table saws, workbenches and many of the materials he accumulated.

Nancy does all the hand painting on the signs, boxes and furniture, which makes each piece unique. While she considers her own personal style to be romantic farmhouse, she paints in a variety of styles from folk to contemporary. Some of her favorites are farm animals, especially horses, as well as flowers, birds, angels and all the holidays. She draws inspiration from her large collection of vintage children’s books as well as her farm and gardens. Nancy also learned sewing skills from her mother, so you will see pillows, aprons, tote bags and corn bags in vintage fabrics.

Nancy and Ed are excited to come to Ohio, so stop by and say hello and see what new treasures Nancy has “fancied” this season. You can preview some of her merchandise on Facebook at Nancy’s Fancies Art. You can visit Nancy in booth 23.
