Hello, and welcome to my shop.

My goal is to offer interesting, beautiful and unusual items at reasonable prices. The jewelry (Now Available at www.etsy.com/shop/dodiesdrawer)I have to offer is all previously owned vintage or antique and will have some degree of wear consistent with their age and having been loved at an earlier time. Personally, I like this about old jewelry. Maybe I'm nutty, but I have thought since I was a small girl that well-loved old jewelry brings good luck to whoever is fortunate enough to have inherited it. I will disclose anything that may be viewed as an imperfection; I want you to be happy.

Many of my Chris Martin Designs handbags are also made from nicely old and sometimes beautifully worn vintage linens and textiles. I carefully wash and line dry all of my fabrics, and I only use the very best pieces. I love love love the softness and faded colors, the fine embroidery,and exquisite laces of old linens; and I have infinite respect for the women who made these gorgeous pieces of art. However, these fabrics have been used in another life and may have small imperfections. I take great care in creating these handbags, it's very important to me that they be sturdy as well as beautiful, and I want you to love them as much as I do!

Collecting vintage clothing has been a passion for most of my life. Again, I appreciate the fine fabrics, laces, detailed designs and careful construction used in times gone by. If a piece of clothing is too damaged to wear, I'll often salvage whatever is still usable and remake these pieces into new garments. I hope you'll have fun browsing my latest finds and creations, and maybe you'll find something beautiful and unique for yourself!
