About

While I've been focused on making music with my band Cat Midway, my mom has joined the shop with her unique crocheted rugs, also known as 'modern primitive floor art'!

I make the bags, altered vintage, and jewelry here in the shop. Recycling is my passion and I love taking cast-offs and sewing them into something different and one of a kind.

Most of my fabric I use and clothes that I alter have been donated to me by friends and family who didn't want them anymore. Other times, I use material from second-hand stores.

The only new things I have to buy are thread and sewing needles. This is why I'm able to keep my prices low and you can be sure you're buying something at least 95% recycled/up-cycled. I also use 100% recycled/recyclable packaging when I ship items!…

I've been altering and designing clothes since 1996. My Grandma taught me how to use a sewing machine, my cousin Ashley showed me how to sew two pieces of fabric together, and I've been hooked ever since!

I started selling clothes in 2001 at a friend's vintage clothing store and have been listing on ebay on and off since 2003. Currently, I have stuff for sale on etsy and locally at Rubie's Paradise Salon in Lansing, MI and The Record Lounge in East Lansing, MI.

Let me know if you have any questions and I love hearing back from my customers!
