About Us

Roger and Sarah Strawn DeVader

It's been 29 years since I opened Sarah's Enchanted Cottage here in Holton, Ks.
I started out as a craft shop teaching how to paint wooden cut-outs.  That's when geese and hearts were so popular.  Do you remember that?  I also taught how to dry flowers, herbs and weeds to make beautiful wreaths and other interesting things! We were located upstairs above an antique shop. (owned by Pat & Gordon McClintock)  Wow, that brings back memories!  It was a fun time.  I soon needed more space so I moved to the south side of the square next to Jan's Attic ( owned by Jan Hodge)

We then moved to our present location on the west side of the town square. We sold gifts, collectibles, and home décor.  I've helped decorate a lot of homes in this area, especially for the holidays.  About 5 years ago I added yarn to the shop.  Well that lead to fiber . . . . . wool . . . . .  and other things. Somewhere in there I also offered paint classes.  Now I'm back where I started . . . . . kinda . . . . . playing with arts and crafts.

The new chapter in my life includes spending more time with my Grandson,
gardening, creating in my new art and craft studio and working with my husband of 50 years here on our farm.
