We are Karyn and Chelsea, a mother/daughter team from North Texas.

Here's a little about each of us:

Hi, I'm Karyn, and I have about 40 years of experience in the arts, crafts, and design business, and I've sold vintage lingerie online for the past 10 years. I love upcycling vintage clothing and accessories, and making fascinators. I enjoy working with feathers in the headpieces and hair accessories I make, cutting them, shaping them, and arranging them on a piece. I like to use recycled materials and vintage fabrics to create the base of the piece, and each one has a name and a story behind it. When I'm not working with…

I like to use recycled materials and vintage fabrics to create the base of the piece, and each one has a name and a story behind it. When I'm not working with "frilly" things, I'm cuddling with my dog, Sam, hula hooping, listening to music, or spending time with friends and family.

Hi, I'm Chelsea, and I've inherited the love of old things and art from my mom (thanks, Mom!) I have been in the arts and crafts business for about 15 years. I started by helping my mom and grandmother with the family business, and making beaded wire bookmarks when I was in junior high. I still enjoy a good, sparkling bead, and like combining new and vintage beads to create new jewelry, as well as hand-sewing beads to clothing and accessories. If I'm not looking for vintage clothing and jewelry, you'll find me creating Halloween props, face and body painting, doing flow arts, volunteering, or spending time with my family and friends and our little dog, Bee.

We both sing, dance, and watch scary movies together when we're not finding treasures at our local resale, thrift, and antique stores, or garage and estate sales. Karyn has a very accurate built in "sale" radar that helps us find the best sales around, though, so a treasure hunt could begin at any time!
