IT ALL STARTED IN SAN FRANCISCO IN 2003, WHERE NESSA BEGAN DESIGNING CUSTOM INVITATIONS & STATIONERY (THE CARD BAR) AFTER MARRYING JEFF AND LEAVING HER CORPORATE CAREER.  AFTER STARTING A FAMILY,  WE MOVED BACK TO LAKE OSWEGO, OREGON IN 2007 WHERE NESSA CONTINUED TO DESIGN AND PRODUCE INVITATIONS.  

A FEW YEARS AGO, WE PURCHASED AN 1885 CHANDLER & PRICE LETTERPRESS, WHICH HAS ENABLED NESSA TO PRINT THE INVITATIONS SHE DESIGNS IN-HOUSE.  IN 2015, AS A RESULT OF NEEDING A SPACE FOR THE PRESS, SHE OPENED A RETAIL STORE IN LAKE OSWEGO CALLED 'THE GROVE,' WHERE HANDCRAFTED AND LOCALLY MADE ITEMS (AND STATIONERY OF COURSE) ARE SOLD.  

OVER THE SUMMER OF 2016, WE MOVED OUR FAMILY TO THE CHARMING TOWN OF EXCELSIOR, MINNESOTA, WHERE WE OPENED OUR SECOND STORE, WATER ON WATER.  THE STORE IS FILLED WITH CAREFULLY CURATED ITEMS, MANY OF WHICH ARE HANDCRAFTED AND LOCALLY MADE.

THE PRINTING PRESS HAS FOUND A NEW HOME AT WATER ON WATER, AND CAN BE OFTEN SEEN IN USE.  STOP IN SOMETIME TO SEE HOW IT WORKS!

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON! - Nessa and Jeff Sander, Owners
