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.
More than just a store, E9 aims to be the biggest otaku community in Amarillo. E9 is the center for anime and k-pop merchandise in Amarillo. Made by fans, for fans, we understand the needs of our customers and do our best to provide the finest service when it comes to everything Anime related.
I am a local seamstress/designer that has embraced the Steampunk aesthetic. I’ve been sewing for over 30 years and this genre fired my imagination. Steampunk fashion has become my passion. My daughters, Jessica and Mikala, often join me in the creative process. They have inspired some of my diesel-punk pieces and a children’s line. We make everything from clothing to accessories and have recently developed a Steampunk Murder Mystery Party Game.
Cons are my favorite part of this business next to creating. Meeting people and hearing about how they put their costume and characters together is fascinating. So make sure you drop by our booth and show us what you’ve done and check us out. We could have an inspirational starter piece for you or that perfect you final touch.
We’re a little less than a month away from AMA-Con 2014 and we have less than 20 booth spaces remaining! If you’ve spoken to me about a booth, I’ve reserved your space, but you need to have your payment and paperwork to me by July 1st. After that, your booth will be forfeit.
If you’re interested in having a booth at this year’s event and haven’t sent me your application/payment, yet, please do so as soon as possible!
We’re so excited about the awesome things going on at this year’s AMA-Con and we’d love to have you join us!
See you in July,
Amanda Hope Shelburne
Otaku – a Japanese term for people with obsessive interests, commonly the anime and manga fandom.
“My main goal is to create a big anime community here in Amarillo, TX. A place where otakus, anime lovers, or new people can come hang out and interact with other people that share the same interest. I want to be the first anime shop here in Amarillo to create such a community. I’ve always enjoyed watching anime and collecting anime figures, and that’s what motivated me to open up an anime shop here in town.”
