The phenomenon known as Sarah's Attic actually began on the dining room table of the Schultz home in Chesaning, MI.
In 1983 Sarah was managing the gift department in her husband's pharmacy, where she was also selling her own hand-made creations. Not surprisingly, the best selling products were those she created herself such as stenciled slates, boards, and pictures.
It was while visiting a gift show in Charlotte, North Carolina, that her hand-made stenciled tote bag caught the attention of a sales representative, who suggested she market her creations.
At first, the mother of five children declined, but reconsidered later as she thought about such family necessities as a new couch and college tuition.
With the help of her family, friends, and a few employees a "small" business venture was started called Sarah's Attic--From the Heart. The company was founded on three basic principles: Love, Respect and Dignity. Sarah's upbringing was evident in her creations right from the beginning. As a child she was taught by her parents to respect everyone, regardless of race, creed or appearance. A small heart was painted on each piece to symbolize her belief that all mankind is created equal--a trademark that still continues today.
