About

Since I was very young I was exposed to fabric, sewing, and crafting. My family has a background in the old fabric shop, now closed, but once known as Piece Goods. As I child, I remember spending hours in the fabric shops with my family. I used to love playing with fabrics and merchandising goods as a little girl. I would spend hours beading or making new furniture with fabric and a hot glue gun! In addition to my love of creating, sewing, and crafting, I developed a passion for vintage as a teenager when I worked at the Salvation Army in Montana (I even filmed a commercial for the store in early 2000).

Since then, vintage passion has never left my soul. I worked part time at the Bargain Box of Wilmington, where I was trained under and became hugely inspired by the now owner Second Skin Vintage (on Etsy and brick and mortar in Downtown Wilmington, NC). I'm interested in design and education. I am certified in Floral Arranging. I am inspired by watching children, reading old sewing/crafting books, and I love to use re-purposed material mixed in with new material. It is such a joy to share what I make with you; I hope you enjoy my items as much as I enjoy finding them and making them.
