About GreenGypsies

Sales 25,874
On Etsy since 2010

What’s the story behind the name GreenGypsies? Glad you asked !

Many of my creations incorporate a bit of “GREEN”…rescued, recycled, repurposed materials given new life. The old adage, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” rings true for me! ( For instance: I once scooped up a huge supply of unwanted ceramic tiles found at a yard sale...without a clue as to what I would with them!)
“GYPSIES” describes the love for RV travelling my late husband and I enjoyed for many years. We never passed an antique shop or flea market that didn't warrant a visit! This started my love of collecting vintage magazines.
One day, I had an idea to team up those rescued tiles with some great images scanned from those musty magazines...then, by adding a dash of sassy humor... my "sassy" signs were created! (These eventually led to the introduction of sassy cards, magnets and coasters.)
Our beloved travelling companions, chocolate Labradors Tootsie and the late Tully, inspired the sassy dog saying signs and chenille ornaments.
When our granddaughter was born, a long hidden love of miniatures once again came to court! Dreams of future dollhouses inspired me to start filling those rooms with visions of miniature books, rugs, posters and more that became my line of miniatures.
I eagerly await the next chapters to my story!
Thanks for visiting...enjoy this ever growing shop, GreenGypsies!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

My miniature items are designed with the adult collector in mind. These items are a bit too delicate and/or small to be used as playthings for children.
All dimensions are "approximate." Many may be altered slightly upon request.

Care instructions

My signs, printed on paper and applied to ceramic tiles, are intended for indoor use only and where they will not be exposed to moisture.
