Welcome to THE MYSTICAL KALEIDOSCOPE. By purchasing from my shop you are agreeing to all of my shop policies. Thank you.

Here you will find a little bit of everything that is fun, funky, and weird. I got the name of my shop from my love of the mystical and colorful.

My name is Barbara and I am 52 and have been happily married for 34 years and have one grown son. I also have one cat, 4 water turtles, an adopted manatee and an adopted sea turtle. I do most of the painting and handle all of the vintage, antiques, and collectibles. I also do most of the altered art and mixed media 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…

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 store, antique malls, consignment shops and flea markets. 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 today as almost 3 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're 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, positive feedback, and by telling your friends about my shop. If you didn't enjoy your visit please let me know so I can correct any problems that need correcting.
