“WHO OR WHAT IS OLLIE?”
Ollie is an owl, and the creation of Karen and David Fast. Ollie was born in response to an unexpected career change for Karen. After
managing and buying for St. James Gift Shop in La Jolla, CA for 13 years, the Church decided to close the Shop.
Luckily, David and Karen are a great, talented team! With Karen’s discerning eye and David’s artistic talents, a new company began.
The philosophy of Ollie is~~To be an outreach for Artisans all over the world, to support them and encourage them to stretch their imagination – to be Master Craftsmen. Ollie carries familiar artists and art work, but he looks forward to meeting and working with lots of new, great artists. We promise to bring you the best of the best ~Bright and beautiful museum quality merchandise.
Ollie is an Internet business, as well as at home by appointment. We do Church Bazaars, Numerous Houston Shows, Open Houses and Trunk Shows.
Karen is available for consulting~ either as a personal shopper for those of you that collect certain items, or for museum, mission or church gift shops looking for merchandising and display ideas.
David is busy working on those much anticipated paintings and jewelry!
Stay tuned, the best is yet to come!
