Hi, I’m Christine, a family oriented, disney-addict, champagne-loving, follow your dreams, type of girl – and the the owner Haven & Hasbrook. Haven & Hasbrook was born out of my love for calligraphy and design, and believing that following your dreams and passion is the best way to finding the secret to happiness. I’ve always had a love for handwriting and design and decided to pull in all my past experiences together to launch something I’d be most passionate about. I took my background in design, my experience as an independent business owner, my skill set as a project manager, and my love for calligraphy and brought them together to launch Haven & Hasbrook.
I wanted to create a shop that attracts those looking for traditional, beautiful calligraphy pieces as well as appeal to those who may have never considered themselves admirers of calligraphy. I strive to work with my clients to find the perfect fit to showcase their personalities and integrate those characteristics into my work to highlight them on their special days, in their homes, and anything in between!
What's In A Name?
It’s actually not a what, but more of a where. When I was a little girl my grandmother used to sit me down and make me practice handwriting drills for hours. Fast forward 20+ years later and she is who I have to thank for instilling my love of letters and handwriting. Although she’s no longer with me I wanted to pay tribute to those long hours as a little girl and decided to name my company after two streets she grew up on: Haven Avenue (in Ocean City, NJ) and Hasbrook Avenue (in Philly).
That’s enough of me though – I want to know about you! I want to help you create pieces that fit your life so well you don’t know how anyone else other than your best friend could have come up with it.
