Martha Stewart releases replica of the crib she made in prison
Martha Stewart sells replicas of the ceramic crib she made while in prison.
In a new video posted to his TikTok account, the writer and TV personality said that the white figurines, with baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph, make a “really beautiful and special gift” with “a little credit from Street”.
“Inspired by, guess what, the decor I did when I was confined,” she said.
She also showed viewers the original set, in a darker fawn hue, still featuring her inmate number at the bottom.
“These are the exact replicas of the crib I made in my pottery class when I was at camp,” she added, comparing the two sets.
Stewart, a Catholic, spent five months in a West Virginia prison between 2004 and 2005 after being convicted of conspiracy, obstructing justice and making false statements.
Stewart’s latest business venture is hailed as “iconic” on TikTok, where the video has been viewed over 300,000 times.
“Martha Stewart capitalizing on her work in prison is the energy we never thought we needed this year,” wrote one user.
Another said, “Who goes to jail and makes the best nursery in the world?”
“Honestly, with that backstory, it’s worth every penny,” wrote a third person.
Others noted his choice of vocabulary and avoiding the use of the word “prison”.
“‘To camp’. Icon,” wrote one person. Another said: “Only Martha goes to camp and brings back decorations!
The set, which is sold here, costs $ 149 (£ 112). It’s currently on sale before Christmas for $ 119.20 (£ 89).
Stewart opened up about his prison experience in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar earlier this year.
“I knew I was strong on the entry and I was definitely stronger on the exit,” said Stewart.
“It was a very serious event in my life. I take it very seriously. I’m not bitter about it. My daughter knows all the problems that have resulted from it. There are several of them.”
She said that her only “big regret” that came from her prison term was that she could not accommodate Saturday Night Live.
“My probation officer didn’t want to give me the time. This really pissed me off, because I would have loved to have hosted Saturday Night Live. I would like that on my CV.
