We are a family owned business. The owners are Jim, Sharon & Nathan Billmeyer. We have been crafters for some time now. We started out doing the craft show experience with packing, setup, weather and taking down….we hated it. Then we open a store in Madison, WI but found that retail hours were worse than craft shows.

Thus we turned to the internet along with craft shows. Advertise our product to a whole new crowd. Nathan has a business major and runs the website. Sharon is is a retired consumer education teacher. Jim is “JB” Now we can spend time doing the crafting that we enjoy. Everything found on our site is made right here in Madison, Wisconsin. We hope you enjoy our product as much as we enjoy making it. Feel free to contact us via email at nathan@jbsmadison.com


Nail Signs
A great way to say what you want is to put one of our flathead nail signs on your wall. Each nail sign is individually welded together and painted. If you can spell it, we can make it. Available paint colors for nail signs include red, black, navy, gold, green or easily spray paint yourself to match room. Size varies from nail sign chosen, typical letter is 2″ wide by 3″ tall. Custom orders welcome.
Baseball is life

Recycled Garden Art

Its amazing how much we throw away that still has a useful life. Taking old metal utensils, golf clubs, tools and odds & ends, Jim welds a creative creature or art piece to use in the garden. Designs include funky birds, frogs, golf club pokes, and flowers made out of old plates.
