Announcement   In early sideshows, the term "Bally" was used to describe the person who enticed passersby to come and be amazed, astonished or bewildered by the perfections and imperfections awaiting beyond the curtained door. Once inside, and following the promised show, the audience could often pay a little more for a "Ding", something extra not advertised outside by the "Bally". Because this extra thrill was pitched as too exciting for women or too exotic for children, the players in this form of entertainment often referred to the event as the "Bally Ding Revue".

About

Step Right Up...

I've always been a creative person, and easily bored. My last few years have been full of schooling and raising my 2 beautiful daughters. Now, that my girls are teenagers I have more time for me and I began by creating jewelry out of broken, vintage pieces, and odds and ends I came across. I started doing Indie Craft Fairs and realized how much I loved the creative process and meeting new people.

My shop is an extension of myself. Each piece I create is one of a kind and has a story. That's what I love...the story. When I see a broken necklace, or a brooch, I see a beautiful item that needs a new purpose, and a new life.

The vintage photos, that I now carry in my store, are a continuation of those stories. They are beautiful and sometimes haunting, but always interesting.

Please enjoy The Revue and The Bally Ding.
