She’s a mother of three from Lewis Center, a minivan-driving matriarch who shuttles her children to drama club and cooks buttered noodles for dinner. Amy Dalrymple Murphy is also a crafty connoisseur.
The tattooed, mile-a-minute talker who digs the music of Joy Division and the writings of J.D. Salinger runs a clothing line called AmyD, which features “found” materials such as bedsheets, curtains and tablecloths.
With business steady enough for Murphy to extend beyond her craft fairs and online shop, she opened a boutique last month at 211 E. Arcadia Ave. in the Clintonville neighborhood. The store is open Friday afternoons and by appointment.
