I love crafting of all types, and I especially have a passion for upcycling. My favorite upcycle project was my 1960's Schwinn. I found it in the basement of an antique shop (Time Bomb collectibles--if you are in or around the Spokane area, I recommend that you check them out!). The bike was rusted, crusty, the paint was bad, and the tires were completely destroyed. With the help of a friend with mechanical skills, we took it completely apart, sanded it down, polished the chrome, and replaced all of the parts that could not be fixed or restored to working order. The result is a super sweet bright pink cruiser with just a little attitude. I want my etsy shop to embody the spirit of my bicycle upcycle, so I named it after my bike project:
Pink + Schwinn = Schwink.
I love bringing new life to unfortunate looking old and abandoned items. I also enjoy making new items and offer some here in my shop. Take a few...
