Together in the community - Emmaus Lambeth and Ethan & Graces
Recently Natalie Berryman, a local resident, was asked to write a story for us about her relationship with Emmaus Lambeth and her hand painted furniture business, Ethan & Graces.
" My name is Natalie Berryman and I'm the owner of Ethan & Graces hand painted furniture.
I came across Emmaus Lambeth around 4 years ago, way before I started my business as I live locally and as a lover of vintage and retro items Emmaus was perfect for me.
I first realised I had a passion for furniture and painting when I bought my first few items and thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of sourcing, choosing the colour, the painting and of course the end result.
I quickly fell in love with this and knew I wanted to turn this into a career. I taught myself everything I needed to know and I went from there.
The last piece I bought from Emmaus was a beautiful vintage Bureau Desk.
It had so much potential to be brought back to life and turned out amazing, it's a complete one off piece and you don't get that often.
To know that my business is helping a charity like Emmaus and Emmaus is helping me is a great feeling.
I couldn't get a job more satisfying than this, so thank you Emmaus!
A big thank you to Natalie for her story!
