hello loves!
and welcome to my etsy store!

i have been absolutely OBSESSED with vintage clothing, jewelry, knick-knacks, etc. for over 20 years. as soon as my friends got their drivers licenses we would take weekend pilgrimages to thrift stores, antique stores and record stores.

some of the items i am selling have been in my collection for over 20 years and as a borderline hoarder, i can tell you, it is very hard to part with them......
i know where every second hand/thrift/auxiliary/charity/antique store is within a 100 mile radius and i visit them a little too often..

i LOVE history and the stories behind individual items.
i LOVE making my own little stories in my head about specific items.
i LOVE the connections i make with people in these stores and the conversations we have.
i LOVE recycling/upcycling/repurposing and giving new life to old things.

my handmade eco-friendly, upcycled jewelry is available at, :loveycraft:, my first etsy shop.
