I am intrigued by the variety and choices of excellent handmade and Vintage Items that are available in the shops of Etsy.

The wood parts for the Black Walnut Clutch was once part of the interior of a library of a 1950's Miami Judge. My son and I dismantled the shelving, doors, frames and trim. We then carried the treasure down 5 floors, his reward for the find was furniture for college.
