Bathe Handmade

Since our first day in business, Bathe has been offering our customers the best selection of products at unbeatable prices. Our online store offers a variety of fantastic merchandise along with unique limited edition and seasonal items that are perfect for you. 

We started out under the name "Mary's Holiday Shoppe", but quickly realized that doesn't fit who we are and what we want to accomplish.

Bathe Handmade is a home based small business. We have a studio that is completely separate from our living quarters, and it has recently been renovated to accommodate our goals.

Thank you for allowing us to make your life just a little bit better.


Bathe Handmade is a one woman show. Mary Kortes is the owner and sole employee of Bathe Handmade. She grew up as a lover of the arts. Her grandmother Sally, would always influence Mary to do crafts. They enjoyed sewing together, beading necklaces, and painting home decor. 

When Mary is not making items for Bathe Handmade, she is in her craft room doing other art projects with her children. Mary is a mother of four children, and also a wife. 

Mary grew up in Chicopee, Massachusetts with her parents and older siblings. Before marrying her husband (Eddie) she moved in with him into his family's home in Easthampton in 2011, which is currently the home of Bathe Handmade! In 2020, before covid really hit the US, Mary's mother passed away from Pancreatic Cancer. Obviously devastated, Mary did  fundraisers to raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer research.  


In 2021, Mary and Eddie tied the knot at her sisters home in Goshen. It was a beautiful ceremony that honored her mother in many ways, as well as their four children who were a big part of the ceremony.
