About

It began with a love of thrifting...

I've always been in love with thrift shops and vintage. Perusing through old books, atlases, dictionaries... Walking through a vintage shop... These things give a nostalgic glimpse into very different times. In high school I started getting crafty with the idea of bringing back to life some of the relics I've come across in thrift shops, flea markets, and travel. It started as mixed media art and collages. Soon it progressed to incorporating these items into everyday, functional items such as magnets. And so my etsy shop was born!

Out of old library discards, outdated thrift store reference books, broken jewellery, buttons, and even vintage postage stamps, I created handmade cards and magnets. I started with selling occasionally at the local university market, and then started listing more frequently on etsy. The idea expanded into customization after endless requests from fellow students for magnets of places they called home or favourite travel destinations. Eventually it expanded to jewellery and wine glass charms!

Aside from being a relaxing way to de-stress during my studies, it even helped to partially fund my education. Now I still love flipping through the stacks of atlases I've managed to procure to re-visit the places I've travelled and observe how places and times have changed over the years. And it always makes me so happy to hear when a customer has received their package and will be reminded of that hometown, vacation, or special spot every time they use their charms!
