About

A Hands-On Traveler

Travel has always been important to me. As a former teacher of English Lit, the spring breaks and summer months allowed me to recharge by discovering parts of the globe I read and dreamt about during the year. While the usual tourist sights and sensations were certainly alluring and though my birding pursuits led me deep into nature, I also found myself drawn to indigenous markets, tucked away city shops, riverside trading posts, remote mountain villages... in quest of vintage, traditional and handmade treasures. And these treasures told fascinating stories of indigenous craft traditions through their colors, textures, designs and history! Smitten, I came home not only with my suitcases filled but with happy memories of new friendships and high adventures. Many of those finds are here on Etsy, along with quality items carefully chosen from estate sales, auctions, thrift stores and my own personal belongings (which need a serious whittling down!). Over the years, I have come to believe that buying handcrafted and vintage items is the preferred way to shop. With a glut of fine merchandise in our closets, trunks and attics, it seems to make sense to pass these things along or to reuse and redesign them. The talented hands of women around the world have worked through ingenious ways of doing this and, thankfully, Etsy allows sellers to highlight this resourcefulness.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 17, 2018
Welcome to BowerHouse! We present vintage yardage, vintage linens of all sorts, select and antique pieces, wearables, ethnic treasures, common household (but interesting) linens for your perusal. We are also eager to share many handmade vintage woven and embroidered pieces of work that are now, unfortunately, often bypassed in favor of mass-produced, machine-made fabrics. It is our belief that these older pieces carry with them the inner strength and serenity of the women of our past. We want to acknowledge their quiet hours spent with a needle and cotton floss or a backstrap loom. Many of our selections show the creator`s love of beauty,her talent for choosing the right color and texture and an exacting expertise. We believe that good craftswomanship from the past continues to inspire us and elevate our sensibilities.
