About

Welcome to DESIGNS by BLUE SEPTEMBER. By purchasing from my shop you are agreeing to all of my shop policies. Thank you.

Here you will find a large variety of handbags along with handmade and upcycled jewelry, clothing, and crochet items. I also carry quite a few jewelry organizers.

I got the name of my shop from the fact that mine, my husband's and my son's birthdays are all in September along with my anniversary and our birthstone is the blue Sapphire.

My name is Barbara and I'm 53 and have been happily married for 35 years and have one grown son. I also have 2 cats, 4 water turtles, a guinea pig, an adopted sea turtle and an adopted mantee. I do most of the painting and handle all of the vintage, antiques, and collectibles. I also do most of the mixed media and altered art items…

I try to make sure my vintage items are at least 20 years old by looking through antique price guides, going to antique malls, and looking through other Etsy shops. I enjoy going to yard sales, thrift stores, flea markets, antique malls, and consignment shops. If it's used I love it. I find a lot of the items I use in my work while I'm just out and about. Someone else's junk is definitely my treasure.

My husband Darrell does most of the woodworking, electrical and general fixing up of anything that's not working right when we bring it home. It's a miracle that he's still with us as 4 years ago he was hit by a truck while helping accident victims and is now partially disabled. He was in a coma for 5 weeks and in the hospital for 2 1/2 months. He still has a lot of rehab and possibly more surgeries to go through but all things considered we are blessed.

My friend Nikki does the sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting, etc. for the shop. She also does most of the hand painting of items. We enjoy going out on antiquing and junk trips together.

I hope you have enjoyed visiting my shop today. If you have enjoyed your visit please let me know with hearts, 5 star reviews, and by telling your friends about my shop. If you didn't enjoy your visit please let me know so I can try and correct any problems.
