A long time lover of the strange and obscure, I've been collecting ephemera for over 15 years. I grew up in Chicagoland, but moved to Denver after falling in love with Colorado on my first visit. Ephemera Obscura started out as a way to share my collection and is now my full-time passion thanks to you other Obscurians out there. I love preserving these small bits of history!
My personal collection ( the ones I will NEVER give up) are like a concentrated version of Ephemera Obscura. Certain subjects are apt to go right into my collection and never make it into the shop. Disasters of any type, prisons and hospitals, Interior shots without people, Postmortem and Mourning, Historical Moments, Places or People, the ones that leave me wondering, the most strange, and images that just have that indescribable 'familiar' feeling are the hardest for me to let go. I am inspired by past history, culture, and above all the human spirit…

I make Jewelry, mostly from repurposed vintage pieces. I often make collage, and assemblage pieces. When I'm not on Etsy I enjoy participating in historical reenactments, Camping and Hiking, and paranormal Investigation. Sometimes all at the same time.
I greatly enjoy hearing shoppers' stories and comments so please feel free to write. ~Kari
