Betsy Jones' Profile

About

Welcome to departmint!

Opening this store helped me make my big transition from Brooklyn to rural Pennsylvania. Yes. Big move.
Departmint started as a way to keep myself sane due to the fact it took quite a while to get my studio back up and running. Since I already had magpie tendencies, curating vintage seemed a natural extension of the kind of work I was already doing.
From this beginning it's grown into a sincere focus and love.

I can safely and with confidence say I am now a rural girl with goats, garden, and an Intrepid Vermonter wood stove.....and a studio!
Guess where all the vintage is. The studio! yay.
Not quite the way I planned, but better than I could have imagined.

How do I find the items in this shop? I travel around…

How do I find the items in this shop? I travel around with my (also) intrepid husband and dig through the jumbles. Always the jumbles, and sometimes clusters and piles.
I comb through lots of strange odd places, and gather all the good items I can. I also wash my hands a lot.

I hope you enjoy the items in my shop as much as I.

As I now have a studio (!!!) I also make my own work.
I've recently re-opened my etsy artwork store.

I also blog! Kind of. A little bit. Sometimes.
