Kathleen Pritchard's Profile

About

I have always loved being involved in nature's creation; whether it was through feeling the rich, dark earth of my garden soil before planting the first seeds of spring, or sewing clothing for my family, (skills I learned from my mother and grandmother as a young child), or experiencing the thrill of birth and care of my own 4 children.

In 2011, after years of taking care of my own children, a home, and a long and satisfying career of teaching, I shifted my creative talents to yet another venue: one that seemed to blend all of my skills and creative energies. I began to rescue abandoned wool sweaters from their dreary states of neglect in thrift stores; and to "de-construct," design, and transform them into gorgeous, "upcycled" purses and handbags.

Consumers can now find these lovely, "Eco-Friendly" handbags that are made from upcycled / recycled, all-natural materials (mostly, anyway) at this website; with the added benefit of looking very G-O-O-D...and doing so rather cheaply! What could be better? Guilt Free Shopping!

In addition, beginning in the fall of 2013, I also began offering a selection of unique Vintage Collectibles. These are items that I've specially selected with an emphasis on vintage tins, hats and ceramics. I hope you like them as much as I do!
