Quirky Cork's Profile

WWW.THEQUIRKYCORK.COM Born and raised in Tampa, FL, I am a girl with dreams. One of those dreams was to come up with an idea for what I could do with all my collected wine corks.

I have also created wreaths (mostly for the Gasparilla Pirate Fest each January in Tampa) informally and for friends the past several years but have recently decided to do Gasparilla/pirate themed items (and wreaths) as seasonal gifts and custom requests.

In addition to my own creations I am pleased to make custom pieces or whatever you like as a single piece or a matching set. Email me at thequirkycork [!at] gmail.com or send me a message through my shop on ETSY. I look forward to hearing from you!
