Pamela Plant of Stan & Stew St. Patrick's Day Decor and Ornaments

Meet the wonderful new artist Pamela Plant who brings exclusive designs to Traditions!

One of our favorite things at Traditions, well besides decorating for all of the finding new folk artists! Last year we were lucky to find Pamela Plant through social media and now we collaborate with her and her partner through JPD Designs, Johanna Parker to feature her products at Traditions. Our exclusive designs from Pamela are so popular, mostly because our customers and collectors love that they are handmade by an American artist, but also because they have a vintage, yet kitschy feel that works well with the kind of decorating we all like to do!
