About

I am an adjunct college Instructor of English in Santa Barbara, California. My sales help make ends meet until I can get my PhD and so be able to gain full-time faculty status. I just received the Masters December 2013! So, onward I go!

I take much pleasure in seeing items I've re-conditioned or found in perfect shape, or inherited go to where they are loved again! I would love for all of us find a way to re-use, re-purpose or re-gift (ha!) to reduce the growing piles of useable items in our landfills, polluting our Earth for the next generation.

This is especially important for our oceans which are filling up with plastic trash, choking marine life. Five years ago I started a non-profit, BEACH ANGELS SANTA BARBARA (see our Facebook page) of volunteer local college students and faculty.

We go down to Stearns Wharf every Sunday at low tide for one hour to pick up trash. Over these past 5 and a half years, we have removed over 6 tons of man-made, dangerous to marine life trash from the wet sands there. Additionally, we have rescued Pelicans, Cormorants, Grebes, Seagulls and other Seabirds.

Your support of my sales helps me pay for our burlap bags, gloves, rescue nets and boxes (for hurt Pelicans and Seagulls we rescue) and helps pay for me to take the kids to Pizza and sodas following their hard work!

Take action - every bit of litter you pick up on the street you save from ending up in our oceans!

And remember, by purchasing from me,or others via Etsy and the other sites, especially when you are choosing Vintage or used items over newly made ones, you are reducing post-consumer waste which is seriously polluting our planet. Re-use, re-purpose, recycle!

I have been selling on ebay for a few years and have over 1000 Feedback scores there you can check out. I am listed under “rosebudinsb”.
