Saltys Pirate Den is a collective of artists doing our part to recycle some waste in the world

Saltys Pirate Den is proud to welcome Chris the Silversmith.
Chris just joined the Pirate Den at the beginning of 2014, its a pleasure working with him, he has the skills to make many of Saltys dream projects happen. Like the sterling silver spoon Bracelet, which I had had in mind when I found the spoon a couple years ago.
Chris is in the process now of opening his own etsy shoppe:

Tom recycles, repairs and customizes denim with his <a href=http://www.squidoo.com/2res> Resurrected Jeans</a> line.

100% hand sewn from recycled materials. He draws a matching ACEO that comes with most of the pants.
Tom is a multi media guy and brings a wide variety of experience to all of his work, heavily reflected in his Yokash County line of items.

Steve is our tall ship guy.
He has been in on concept, design, historical reference, building, sailing, curating, if it has to do with tall ships,
<a href=http://www.squidoo.com/salty-steve>Steve is the guy to look for</a>. He has worked on ships and amusements from Anaheim to Sjælland.
Steve is currently doing some historical accuracy work on Cabrillos ship, the San Salvador, soon to be built in San Diego

I'm Tim, the computer guy and a vintage collectibles hunter. I make rusty yard art (hence the RustyDragon, my other etsy shoppe), play with Mad Science,love me some Steampunk Stuff, love hitting stuff with a hammer and anvil, and generally whatever else I find interesting at the time.
Lately I been sewing shopping bags, sailor slops, aloha shirts, steampunk costumes, and have been working on mustache wax, dragonbalm, garden markers and steampunk stuff for the RustyDragon, my pirate ship.


I've a booth at the Clearlake Flea Market where I hang out on weekends.
with all manner of items, similar to that listed in this etsy shop, and more !
Drop on by if you are in the area, mention you read it here !


Vintage items and supplies are another area we can't help but get involved in. Destashing enough stuff to hopefully get my warehouse empty.
I have 5 or 6 pear bins full of stuff steampunky for the Rustydragon parade/pyrate faire boat project, thats a lot of overkill for what the project calls for.

There are several others that don't use computers also in the collective, their names will be added if they decide they want something listed.

Between us, we cover a lot of media, so you never know what might show up.
As a group, we all reuse, recycle and Upcycle as much as we are able.

As I mentioned, I use the computer & the others don't, so here we are. Each item posted will have the artists name liberally smeared all over the listing, sometimes 2 or more work on a project.

Requests for Custom Items are always welcome.
