Two Chicks and a Gourd began as a hobby of shopping and creating unique gifts for family and friends. The Two Chicks are Orpah Brandt and Laurie Stevens. Both have been entrepreneurs for many years along with teaching careers. Laurie's interest in gourd crafting began after buying a raw dirty gourd from a local farmers market in north Georgia. Each gourd Laurie designs is individually crafted into a unique work of art. Laurie’s goal is to craft her gourds to have some kind of function….a luminary, an oil lamp, a light, or a bowl for serving food. Laurie is also a woodturner and is a member of the Dalton Area Woodturners Guild in Georgia. She enjoys making bottle stoppers out of exotic woods and FDA kitchen grade stainless steel. Each stopper has a lifetime guarantee and are Winery Approved. These stoppers fit wine, oil, vinegar, and bath oil bottles. In our shop we also specialize in a variety of vintage and vintage reproduction home décor. We have a variety of cast iron items, depression style glassware, porcelain kitchen ware, and license plate tag art.
