Retro Accessories for the Modern Gal!

Growing up in a close relationship with my grandparents, a love of the 30's, 40's and 50's was ingrained in me at a young age. My grandmother taught me to crochet at the age of 12 and often let me look at the old patterns she had that had belonged to her mother, Johanna Arthelia Ashcroft.
Having inherited my great-grandmothers patterns, tools and talent for crafting things by hand I created Arthelia's Attic and named it for her. I take pride in creating high quality accessories made from vintage patterns and often redesigned by me or inspired by my customer's suggestions.
I only use materials appropriate to giving the item the look of the time period. I use modern materials vs vintage to withstand daily wear.
Hair snoods are our most popular item and I offer them in a number of styles. I also make custom handbags from 1940's patterns.
Hundreds of my snoods have been sold internationally since 2009.
