I pay quite a lot of attention to detail in my work which is time consuming, but I feel it is well worth the effort to produce something that pleases the eye, and will not fall apart a few weeks or months down the line.

Finally, the photographs of my items are large, of high resolution, so you can see exactly what you are getting. But please bear in mind that these items are only small, so tiny surface scratches will be exaggerated.

I also have another Etsy shop here http://www.etsy.com/shop/retrohaberdashery (not active at this time)
