Our past? Both of us had prior professional lives, which were far less interesting. (Brett’s was far tastier, though)

(Very Brief) artist statements.

Crystal: I am a maker. Brett: Bacon.

Full disclosure:
We also have brandvital.etsy.com as a buying account, and operate heckfire.etsy.com and vintagegoodday.etsy.com.
