Amy Nelson Hannon

A reputation of hospitality and service paved the way for Amy Nelson Hannon to burst onto the scene in the fall of 2013. Amy gathered goods and treasures to create Euna Mae's Heirloom Kitchen Boutique booth at a regional holiday shopping event. People responded overwhelmingly not only to her products but also to her warmth. She sold out of every item in less than two days and had a list of people who wanted to be contacted for more. Not only did Amy find a market for her carefully curated products, but she discovered there was a growing demand for them. From her store to her online presence, that message has ignited a passion in young cooks who are just learning how to be hospitable and has reignited the same passion in seasoned cooks who had forgotten how much joy comes from serving others. In a marketplace that swings from fancy and foraged to homegrown, Amy has settled on a perfect blend of family, friends and food. Her message that welcoming others into your home can be reasonable and lovely offers a refreshing voice in a conversation filled with complicated recipes, expensive ingredients and quite frankly a whole lot of work. For Amy it always goes back to the heart-a heart to love, welcome and serve.
