Keith Phelps worked as a manager and designer at large destination Gift, Christmas and Garden Center in Mifflinburg, PA for over 18 years. In February of 2014 he experienced major complications to a very minor surgery. After spending several months in debilitating pain and traveling to UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California for 3 very extensive and difficult surgeries, Keith began designing and creating wreaths as a part of his therapy and has began selling them with the profit going to his extensive medical bills. After realizing that he would not be able to return to the 80 to 100 hour work weeks at his previous job, Keith decided to start a home based business designing and making wreaths and exclusive pieces for the holidays and throughout the year.
Inspired Designs by Keith Phelps is dedicated to creating and selling high quality, handcrafted wreaths and fresh and permanent seasonal items to enhance a person’s indoor and outdoor living spaces. Each item is done by Keith, using individual care and traditional techniques that are no longer used in today’s mass market production.
Keith Phelps has extensive experience in the floral, gift, and outdoor living industry and has spent the last 18 years as manager, head designer and buyer at a large destination gift and garden center. Keith, along with his wife Meg, have recently decided to move in a direction that allows Keith to use his unique talents in a more personalized way. In addition, Keith is known throughout the Central Pennsylvania area for his features on WNEP TV’s Home and Backyard weekly television program. Keith enjoys speaking and sharing about his love of plants, flowers, container gardens and other handcrafted items, and is available for presentations for your club, group or organization.
