I specialize in handmade goodies and curios and since mine are the hands that make them, I’m willing to take special requests. Since this is the case, my products are individually unique. I rarely repeat the same design; thus, your purchase is likely to be one-of-a-kind.  Special attention is paid to the quality of my products. If I’m not proud of it, it never makes it to market.

I love making creative and custom things! It’s time to revel in the alternative and unexpected. Its time to have more fun. So come on and browse my wares to find the style that fits you!”

Meet AMA-Con 2014 Vendor Houchin’s House of Wizarding Wares


Houchin’s House of Wizarding Wares is a local handmade business in Fort Worth, Texas. Husband and wife team Erin and Keri Houchin work together to create products that bring imagination to life and inspire.

Erin is the woodworker and wandmaker. Keri crochets and sews owls and other soft items. Our goal is to produce wands that are as unique as the individual they choose. We do not replicate designs, either our own or someone else’s.

Our wands are made from natural materials – locally found or sustainably grown wood – and are free from toxic stains or finishes. We believe the natural beauty of the wood is important, as is the safety of our customers.
