Thank you for visiting our website! The history of our family business began back in 1987 with my step-dad's scroll saw and my mom's creative mind. My parents, Larry and Gloria Aebly ran their business, Old World Art, out of their Roberts, WI home. My stepdad spent hours on the scroll saw cutting my mom's original hand-drawn designs, which they began selling at crafts shows around the midwest.
In 1994, Larry and Gloria purchased a laser and began making more intricate and detailed designs; and they also began to travel further from home to shows in the eastern and southern US. As their business grew, both my sister and I got involved by painting and working at art and craft shows.
In 2002 my parents began to retire, and my wife and I took over, renaming the business. Since then we've been making our own ornaments, including both my mother's designs and some of our own. We do all of the work ourselves: designing, cutting down plywood, sanding, staining, running the laser, hand-painting (many, many hours on this step), varnishing and attending shows. As of our 2019 show schedule, we have visited and done shows in 18 different states across the country!
Thank you for supporting our small business and purchasing products made in the USA!
Keep an eye on our show schedule and maybe we'll meet you in person at one of our shows around the country!
