Small business highlight: handmade Hartford |  News

She added that she’s been creating baby shower gifts and wedding favors too. She sells beautifully made cards that she calls frame worthy, and she sells house plants. “Custom pieces. It’s really bring your ideas, and we’ll figure it out. I’m always up for a challenge with that, so anything from a small suncatcher, to something I’ve made already could be re-made in different colors or textures, all the way up to larger wall hangings,” she said.

As someone who normally keeps very busy, she turned her art into Hartford Handmade, and now she’s selling pieces online. “I don’t sit still very well. I work as an engineer full time for a medical device company. So, we’re work from home indefinitely at this point, and I’m also a pro-race mechanic for cycling races, so if you’ve seen the Tour De France, there’s the yellow car that follows the riders if a bike breaks somebody jumps out of the car, that’s me,” Lamb explained.

“I kind of look at it like, these are things that I would give or like to receive as a gift. And to try and pair things together, like ‘hey, here’s a sweet little card of a plant and here’s the plant to go with it,’ right. So, it’s matched like that,” she said. Sarah Lamb has been making paper and glass art since she was young, but when the pandemic hit, she realized she could turn her art into a business with the newly found free time.

But with each piece she sells, she’s donating money to local charities, like the Connecticut Animal House, the Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program, and the Clean Earth Project. Lamb said her favorite piece to date is a 3-foot leg lamp replica from the movie ‘A Christmas Story.’
