Hello! I'm Patty Streber, hailing from Rochester, NY. My husband Skip and I have been married for 46 years and have 3 great sons. We are so blessed with their families and 4 amazing grand-children. After trying my hand throughout the years at many arts and crafts, I happily settled into handcrafting jewelry in 2001, from my home in Long Island, NY, and Wishful Thinking was born. For six years, I partnered with many stores in my area and on Cape Cod, where my family has had a second home since 1985. After moving to McKinney, TX in 2007, I opened my first retail space in 2010, on the historic McKinney square as a dealer inside Home & Garden Trading Co. In 2013, I joined forces with two dear friends from H&G to open The Crystal Cloche.
We continued to operate our three businesses under this successful "umbrella" until it was evident we had outgrown the space. I considered retirement until an opportunity arose which enabled me to relocate to a new space across the square that includes room for retail sales as well as a dream-come-true jewelry-making studio. I feel blessed every day to see my very own sign out front that finally says "Wishful Thinking."
Thank you for viewing this site! Whether you live in the Dallas area or plan to travel here, I hope you will visit Wishful Thinking in person. It is my heartfelt wish to make yours come true!
