From Childhood Fantasy to Victorian Parasols on Etsy
My story begins as something akin to a C.S. Lewis novel in a spare room closet. I was four years old in search of a unicorn (my grandparent's over-stuffed plush toy with the floppy horn).
I found instead in the dark corners discarded cloth - delicate, white, and beautiful. Forgetting search all things mystical, I arrayed myself in adventure. I walked down my grandfather’s hallway with a sheer pillow case on my head and a curtain across my shoulders, I was a beautiful bride.
From that moment on, everything was a costume. We played dress-up for hours. As the years went by, my childish obsession turned into a job opportunity as a walking exhibit at our local museum. I was in the paper. I was elated. I was inspired. My friends and I volunteered at festivals and events, all in outfits made from recycled materials. One day someone mentioned Etsy and that was just the beginning!
I work with many materials, fabric, metal, and plastic. Whenever I find affordable vintage, I restore and add it to my shop. I love to work with recycled materials, making something new from something old excites me. Recently, we started a new line of upcycled prom dresses, altering resale shop dresses to create an entirely new look.
Enjoy browsing and let me know if I can assist with a custom creation!
