The Hob Knobery

I introduced you to my Etsy shop, The Hob Knobery, back at it’s launch in late July (right before the birth of my 4th child.)

I’ve been blown away by the response and want to thank all of you that have made purchases! 

One of my staple products has been the Vintage Salvage Water Valve Knobs


I create them to order and have been putting together fun sets of these valve knobs for a variety of buyers since the shop’s launch.  Last week I had the privilege  of putting together a set of 50 to be used as coat hooks at a new bar in New York with a decidedly industrial feel.

You’ll remember, I used them on this fun red dresser (an Ikea hack) a while back.


Hop on over to the shop!  I’d love to put together a custom set for your project! Remember, I always offer a 15% discount on purchases of 10 or more custom knobs!

Another one of my shop staples is the line of natural gemstone knobs.  There’s lots of great stone/color options, or if you have something particular in mind, I can always try and accommodate special requests.  They’re available on either Oil Rubbed Bronze or Satin Nickel bases.


I’m running a special right now on both the Milky Quartz and Rose Quartz knobs.  Regularly $8 per knob, on sale for $6 per knob while supplies last!  (Cannot offer the 15% bulk buy discount on the sale items, but if you order more that 10 knobs, you can still get the 15% discount on non-sale knobs.  Just message me at the shop and I can put together a reserved custom listing for you.)

Thanks again for your business, and I’d love to hear your ideas for new knobs you’d like to see me make or carry.


  1. Wow, four babies and all this too?! I am envious of the energy it must take to accomplish all this...and so beautifully too.
