hey hickory.

"...the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it." 
- Steve Jobs

a few months ago my mom, sister and myself, decided to take the leap and put together a little business of our own. Owning our little shop has been a dream...someday I'd love to have an actual store front...but until then...And so Hey Hickory was born:)

Hey Hickory has a pretty simple back story. My family (4 sisters, mom and dad, the perfect dog, 2 pet raccoons and a guinea pig- for only a short amount of time;) lived on gravel road outside of a small country town. Hickory Road. The mention of that place still tugs at my heart strings. It's where we grew up. Made some of our most fond memories:)

'Hey' is just to get your attention;)


we're very small beans:) Working out of our living rooms, on yoga mats...surrounded by toddler toys, wet infant diapers and baskets (and basketssssss;) of laundry:) Can that be our amazing story someday?? Sounds like a good one!

as long as I can remember, my mom has been taking photos. Starting way back with film:) Courtney has definitely gotten the bug as well! And they just seem to get better and better with each photo taken! They produce the photographs and I help to get things set-up in our online shop - ETSY, INSTAGRAM, FACEBOOK - and then we all work together to come up with products to produce and sell:)



my favorite item so far...our calendars! We got a late start (March...normally, you'd want to be pushing calendars at the end of the previous year) but I couldn't help but give it a go!! It was worth the try because we've sold a few so far!!!:)

we have 3 different calendar themes, 2 travel - more to be listed soon,  and 1 floral - HERE. All gorgeous. All photos we've taken...whether in Central Wisconsin or while traveling:)



my dad is responsible for these amazing wooden stands!! They are so perfectttttt!!!:) Each one will vary slightly...no one piece of wood will ever be quite the same! And we use clips and metal and details that we have available to us. But that makes them all the more charming and character-filled:)!

clip board calendar - more being listed in our Etsy store soon. Large block calendar - HERE. Small block calendar - HERE.

because of weight, the shipping can be a bit of a pain. BUT for those of you who are local, we are available for pick-up or drop-off!:) Just get in touch and we can set something up - that goes for anything in our shop:)






we've also got prints! Some of our all time favorites have been selected, printed and listed!!!:) They come in several different size options.






cardsssss! So many cards!:) We've got folded - we should have some listed in our Etsy shop TONIGHT:) - flat cards with wording - floral set HERE and flat sunset card HERE.
There are a few different listings, for sets or individual cards. 
As always, get in touch with us if you are looking for something specific that you don't see listed! We'd be happy to customize something just for you:)





thank you all so much for your support thus far! We've been having a lot of fun with this and although we don't know where this venture will take us....we're excited to have given it a shot and put ourselves out there. "Success" can mean many different things to many different people. I think for us...for me:)...it's the act of trying. Doing what makes you happy and positive and affects others in a positive way as well. 

thanks for reading. Thanks for checking out our stuff and always know that you can contact us at heyhickory@gmail.com with questions, concerns, suggestions, custom orders, etc. We'd love to work with you!
