Another great purchase from this wonderful shop! Communication with Elaine is right on point....a very easy transaction. This chair is the perfect pop of colour I was looking for. Couldn't be happier 😊 Thanks Elaine!

About

A silk purse and a sows ear..

As you can see in my Bio at even two years old you could find me in overalls ready and eager to work. But really, it was my fathers inspiration that led me to wanting to bring old pieces to life.

One summer he and I re built a boat together which he aptly named the "Elaina Marie" after his dutiful assistant ...me.. Unfortunately that boat sank but my love for refinishing and making a silk purse out of a sows ear did not.

Sometimes out of sheer necessity and sometimes just out of tenacity I will labor over a piece until I can bring it to life. Nothing excites me more than dragging home what is usually
coined as that "old piece of junk" and transforming it to a useful creative work of art. I will admit I mostly work for the kudos...the more the "betterer" as I always say but I think its an addiction. I hear there's help but I'm in denial ..there are just so many pieces to save and so little time.

So until the next time...

Don't just stand there...Paint Something!!!

    Since the first time I helped my carpenter father refinish a boat and have it named after me I was hooked on "Making a silk purse out of a sows ear" I love perusing and snooping around buying and researching interesting finds.

    Before I was two I was in coverall's and what appears to be little work boots..who knew that one day I'd be in my own shop like my Dad sawing and sanding away.

Hi there friend I'm so glad you took the time to drop buy and peruse my shop. I started this little adventure to find a way to share all the interesting things I've come across and make a little income to help support the two of my three boys still at home. As a matter of fact the more I thought about it the more I realized I should have called my little corner of ETSY "The College Fund". So come on grab your coffee/tea sit down and hang out for a while.

Happy Shopping,

Elaine in Canada

I'm going to do my best to describe everything in detail . My items are vintage and retro many hands have waffed over your item before me, expect imperfections. It's not new but it's cool and unique so with that comes wear and tear.

Barring that and we end up having to refund no problem we'll get it done. Please be patient as I'm not a corporate accountant I'm just your average Mom trying to make people happy here. (Hmm where did I hear that before).
Payment
I take all payments accepted by ETSY alternate arrangements can be made for Canadian Shoppers
Shipping
We are happy to offer free local pickup otherwise BEFORE you buy can you please send me an email and I will figure out the exact shipping costs for your item. The shipping I put in is an average only. So I have to bump up the prices. In most cases your shipping will be less.

I am happy to ship International but PLEASE email me first so I can figure out your shipping costs. Please note that I am not responsible for any cross border fees that may incur. I'm just your average Mom trying to make people happy here.

Technical stuff:

All shipping prices are ground shipping. Everything is insured for $100.00
I'll send a confirmation email as soon as I shipped it. Hopefully we don't have a big snow storm that day.

If you want two things from my shop Whoo Hoo! I will probably jump up and down in my kitchen get all excited and say "Hey they want two things from my shop"! So with that said. Your shipping will be cheaper. But PLEASE email me BEFORE you buy and we can adjust the prices. Like I said..."I'm just an ..........happy here" getting the picture?
