Marilyn Krehbiel, owner of Hannah’s Treasures, has been collecting vintage wallpaper for over 20 years. With only a few rolls to start, Marilyn began her collection in the early 1990’s inspired to create vintage wallpaper covered bandboxes in the legacy of Hannah Davis and Berta Montgomery. From start to finish, Marilyn constructed each bandbox by hand and crafted them with a deep admiration for every unique vintage wallpaper pattern. Magazines like Victoria, Romantic Homes, Country Living, Better Homes & Gardens, and many others featured the Hannah’s Treasures wallpaper bandboxes throughout their pages, but as the demand for bandboxes grew, so too did the wallpaper collection.
As the years went by, many different patterns and styles were introduced to the Hannah’s Treasures vintage wallpaper collection—assorted florals, geometrics, kitchen patterns, bathroom papers, faux finishes, novelties, retro wallpapers, etc. With the addition of thousands of new and varied designs, Marilyn became more and more interested in expanding the diversity of her vintage wallpaper collection.Hannah’s Treasures’ focus has shifted over time from selling handmade vintage wallpaper bandboxes to providing rolls of vintage wallpaper to other artists, homeowners, and designers across the world. There is joy in sharing what one loves with others and Marilyn has found it. Joined now by her daughter Hannah, this mother-daughter team stays in hot pursuit of vintage wallpaper, working together to grow and expand Hannah's Treasures by offering a selection and story that can't be beat.
Our goal for this blog is to share the vintage wallpaper stories that got us started, those happening right now, and the stories soon to take place. We hope you enjoy taking part in our journey as we share helpful how-tos, great DIY ideas, inspiring images, and awesome tales along the way.
