If you like nerds, raise your hand. If you don't, raise your standards. - Violet Haberdasher
Hi! My name is Sheri Codner but my friends call me Odd Nerd.
As an Odd Nerd I am truly passionate about several things:
Number 1. Craftsmanship. I have put a put a ton of thought into the design and making of my poster hangers and every small detail has been agonized over in a way that only a nerd could. Each one is handmade by one nerd. Instead of trying to find ways to make my products less expensive I am continually trying to find ways to add value to the things I make. I don't sell wholesale which means more of the cost for my product goes towards the quality of materials and not towards markups.
Number 2. The planet! This place we call home is a source of endless fascination and I, for one, refuse to take part in the trashing of such a beautiful place. I use milk paint which is 100% free of chemicals or toxins to stain ethically sourced oak wood. Milk paint requires more work to use as it requires mixing before using and yes, it would be way easier to just crack open a can of toxic stain but I am happily willing to do the extra work if it means keeping toxins out of the waterways. I make a finish with hemp oil and beeswax to make a product that is truly non-harmful to the environment and sustainable.
Number 3. Interesting and unique vintage art. I love finding new and interesting artworks from the past and giving them new life. They deserve to not fade away and be remembered and enjoyed.
Finally, I love nerds! A nerd is one who's unbridled passion for something, or things, defines who they are as a person, without fear of other people's judgement. When choosing art don't worry what others may think, pick art that speaks to all that is unique and wonderful about you!
Thanks for taking the time to look around my shop. I hope you find something here that inspires your own inner nerd!
