About

I've been crafting for most of my 67+ years - can't remember starting, but know I was embroidering, doing a little sculpting, and learning to crochet by age 7.
I've been mixing media & doing found art for more than 50 years, but have only recently learned that I do steam punk (as well as lots of other stuff, but steam punk is really fun, especially when I can use moving parts).

I've always bought in bulk and wholesale as much as possible--I do have a taste for sterling and semiprecious stones to mix with my "junque"--and have accumulated more than I can possibly use in this lifetime (though I haven't stopped!), so this shop seemed like a good way to share what I have at good prices and make a few $ to keep buying

I try not to stock things major online retailers carry, unless I can do it for less, as occasionally happens, but my aim is to stock small quantities…

I try not to stock things major online retailers carry, unless I can do it for less, as occasionally happens, but my aim is to stock small quantities of new things that I love, which is often possible before the big stores' orders are completed, and change anything that's not moving or is easily available elsewhere as soon as possible. I try to have unique items, unusual assortments, and other hard to find goodies. The number of Chinese sellers on etsy poses some problems for me as a supply shop, but I try to stay ahead of the curve and, of course, provide great customer service and fast shipping from the US.
