Fantasia Custom Designs is a custom design studio offering a variety of products and services for you to choose from. We specialize in custom made-to-order pieces for any budget as well as a sampling of ready-made pieces for you to choose from. We have custom leather workers that can make anything except boots, shoes, and saddles……for now. We have chainmail artists that can make the big, bulky stuff for the barbarian in your life as well as finer quality jewelry if your sensibilities are a little more delicate. We also have custom calligraphy, engraving, and a combination of the two. If you have a place in your yard or garden crying for a carved stone with the image or logo of your choice we can help you there as well. If you need stained glass, hand forged metal, custom bead work, or hand carved wooden items we know those people as well.
We are not your average retail store. We make everything by hand and of the highest quality materials and construction. We put our love, creativity, and time into each project along with your personality. Some people may say our prices are high but we are firm believers in giving you the unique, one-of-a-kind piece you want. These are heirloom pieces that can either be handed down for generations or you can be buried with them and let the kids fight over the shovel.
Guys, if you are looking for a place to come and hang out while your wives, girlfriends, and sisters look at antiques and fabric samples come see us. Come hang out in the shop amongst the smell of leather and wood, and the shelves stocked with tools. We can hang out on the porch and smoke our pipes and cigars and drink a cup of coffee together or we can sit inside and do some work together while we watch a movie on the 32” flat screen. Big Jon Fuller makes a good cup of coffee in his crazy little alchemist set, so if nothing else come and get a little caffeine buzz.
We also offer classes in any of the areas we work. If you have an interest in learning a particular skill or trade let us know. Classes will be offered once or twice a month initially, unless demand increases.
As for VetCraft, that is my other pet project. I, and a few others in the shop, started out life in the military and were deployed to various parts of the world in support of our country. The art and craft has helped and continues to help us manage the effects of the stress we were exposed to and now we are working to help others do the same. If you are struggling with the effects of PTSD, brought about by some type of trauma, we can help you. As part of our program we offer free instruction in any field you choose, access to mindfulness tool and techniques to retrain your mind, as well as access to binaural sound therapy to help with sleep, anxiety, depression, headaches, and focus. We will also help you build your skills into a marketable craft that you can then develop into a business of your own. That’s what I did and 6 years later I am able to help others do the same. If you decided to keep your struggle to yourself because you think nobody could ever understand what you’re going through then you have found those people. We are here to listen, or talk, or both, whenever you want to start laying your burden to rest and start moving forward into the life you deserve.
Come meet us and see for yourself. Whether you want something special made for that special someone, or you want to learn to make it yourself we can meet just about any need. Challenge us, keep us busy, and we will work to exceed your expectations and give you the gift sure to please the person who thinks they already have everything
Yes, that is my real name. It’s Italian. What kind of guy would make up a last name like that?
