How it all got started!
Let me begin by telling my favorite joke ...
“Want to make God laugh?
Tell Him your plans.”
That statement sums up the start of our store.
A Word From Kelly Hendrix, Owner
In February 2020, after learning that the place where I was selling my one-of-a-kind clocks was closing, I got the idea to open a store of my own. Denise Perkins, another vendor, expressed an interest in helping me with the new shop and with my family’s support, I leased a 100-year-old gas station and began renovating.
In March, while I was busy working on the store, NYS shut down non-essential businesses for two-months because of a pandemic. Fortunately, hardware stores were considered essential so supplies could be purchased, and work on the new store could continue. The cleanup and renewal of the building was a true labor of love for me, but I didn’t do it alone. I had help from my husband Mike, two kids Eli and Lydia, mom Joan, my unofficial business partner and staging guru Denise, and many friends.
Kellys One of a Kinds and Friends officially opened May 15, 2020, with a celebration filled with balloons, masks, and social distancing. No matter how we started, we will always believe that God blessed this project from the beginning, and we will always choose “Faith Over Worry”.
Until next time…
Meet the team!
Owner, Artist, and Rustorationist
Kelly designs and builds one-of-a-kind steampunk-inspired clocks and lights. She also redesigns furniture and problem-solves DIY projects.
When Kelly's not working, she also loves to shop thrift stores, search garage sales and flea markets, dive in dumpsters, and hunt through barns to find unique items for the store or a project.
Kelly is exceptionally fortunate to have a supportive, handyman-type husband, two children who tolerate my crazy ideas, and a mother who inspires her with her own endless energy.
Denise loves DIY, painting, woodworking, and creating. She also enjoys sharing her love of rustic, reclaimed, and vintage home décor with her talent for design and staging.
Hand-painted Madelia rocks, sea glass art, handmade dishcloths and more
