About

Poor Aunt Edna was quite often called a hoarder and eccentric by many a gossipy townsfolk in little old Midland, Washington. That was just plain absurd she would say with her kindly smile to whomever would listen. "I collect a wonderful world of fabulous finds, baubles and trinkets, as I'm an Artist of Many Endeavors." She was also always on the hunt for a good garlic dill, but more on that a tad bit later.

Poor Aunt Edna traveled far and wide, high and low to wherever her fancy would take her. She could never pass up a good auction, estate, yard or garage sale to procure those most fabulous finds. She up-cycled, recycled, and repurposed those trinkets and baubles into her most cherished "Art of Many Endeavors", all the while eating those good crisp garlic dills.

Well those garlic dills were Aunt Edna's final undoing. You see, one very still and…

Well those garlic dills were Aunt Edna's final undoing. You see, one very still and quiet evening while the fireflies were aglow, Poor Aunt Edna had a hankering for one of those good old garlic dills, and as it would happen, while she was reaching to pull at the string to the bare lightbulb swinging in the air which only dimly lit her basement, she simply slipped off that worn top step and down that flight of stairs, tumbling head first right into her big ol' pickle crock. That most certainly was the end of her garlic dill cravings, as it was the end of Poor Aunt Edna. God rest her soul.

Now the time has come to sell Poor Aunt Edna's most Wonderful World of Fabulous Finds, Baubles and Trinkets. Come on in and join The Nieces on our most adventurous journey. Relax, have fun, take a look around, and sit a spell if you may; you never know what cast of characters you might encounter along the way.

About "The Nieces" Lynda and Joyce

My name is Lynda and I'm the creative side to Poor Aunt Edna. I love color and lots of it. I do however have a soft side to my spirit also that does show up from time to time. I am married and Mom to 3 grown children and grandmother to 1 grandson Caleb age 5 who really keeps me on my toes. I am retired from designing and making ice skating dresses and costumes for competitive ice skaters. I took a few years of to finishing raising my kids. and then Aunt Edna hurt herself on that Old Pickle Crock (no she didn't die from that spill but it really slowed her down and she passed away 2 yrs. later) and this opportunity arose. We are happily going through all aunties things slowly and repurposing, up-cycling and reclaiming all of her "Fantastic Finds". Trying all the while to keep everything Aunt Edna had taught us about Artistic Endeavors, Vintage Jewelry and Whatnots as she would call them in mind, but adding our own spin on things. I'm the daydreamer of The Nieces so it is my job to create which is great for me. My head actually explodes with ideas especially at 3:00am. Hope you enjoy everything in the shop.

My name is Joyce and I'm the business brains behind our little shop Poor Aunt Edna. I went to college and majored in Commercial Art and Marketing. I am also married with 3 children and am waiting for a grandchild that is due in the middle of Dec a Christmas baby we are so thrilled and can't wait. I just love woking with Lynda on all the ideas and creative aspects she creates. I also create with her but am much better at the billing, set ups, and written verbiage for our shop . I love to tell a good tale and since Aunt Edna had told us a zillion stories about her life I have a lot references to share from. Aunt Edna was such a character and since she had no children of her own she shared everything with Lynda and myself. We miss her so but through the making of this shop with all her treasures, baubles and trinkets we still feel incredibly close to her still. I think she would be very pleased and proud of the little shop, it was right up her alley.

Please enjoy your stay.
