About Von Black Craft
Hi there and welcome to my website. My name is Tanya Von Black and I am the creator of Von Black Craft.
I started creating my Gnome homes over a year ago when I made one for my wee dude. I made the original Den gnome home and I was instantly hooked. As a little girl I would try to glue sticks together with pritt stick to make fairy furniture. Obviously it never really worked and I was always rather disgruntled by that. Who knew that years later I would be making fairy and gnome furniture for a living. My inner child is rather happy.
The houses are made open ended so that a child's imagination can create without any distractions. There aren't even any walls to stop them!
I am the sole creator of everything you see in Von Black Craft. I make it all from my wee workshop in my garden here in beautiful Aberdeenshire in Scotland. All of the branches and Christmas trees that are used for the tables and Pillars are donated or naturally fallen right here in Aberdeenshire.
I am just one rather small human doing this all on my own so lead times can change for my houses. I also suffer from Fibromyalgia and anxiety so these are all factors in my business. I will always try and stick to my turn around time but your patience is really appreciated. Being a work from home mummy and having a bunch of daft body related issues can be hard at times but I really do love working.
This is also the reason why you can only purchase my items by messaging me directly. I love getting to know you all and knowing where my houses and furniture is going to live. It really is my favourite part of my job when I get to see my houses being loved and played with. That is why I create them after all.
So send me a message and lets get creating your dream mini home.
