Yep, me too! Thanks for visiting my Etsy shop. I am here to serve YOU! I appreciate you looking, admiring, and buying from my shop and I am always happy to talk with you, help you, and put your mind at ease about any item in my shop and what value you might find in it.

Join me at Facebook or on Twitter, too! Look at the top of my Shop section for quick links to get there! Join me at my vintage blog, too! Honestly, I don't have a lot of time to blog, but I try to make the posts meaningful and fun when I do. http://vintageontheridge.blogspot.com/

You can find my original fiber art and supplies in my second Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/folkandfiber

I would love to hear from you and always happy to help you. Without you, there's no reason for me to be here!
