I Absolutely Adore these!!!! So well made and works great :)
I'm just an old duffer who enjoys creating, collecting vintage stuff and making folks smile.
In order to understand how my shop started and works I will have to tell you a little bit about myself. Let's all get on my time machine and travel back. My promise to any brave sole who joins me on this trip... I won't leave you there.
It's 1969 and I have just returned to the states after 3 tours of service in SE Asia and decide to settle down in the woods of Maine. I've always had an inquisitive side and combine that with a creative urge... you end up with an artisan or crafts-person. Let me give you an example of what I mean. I liked to go into the woods and find a pretty stone. I did a lot of that back then. I would find a jasper or a tourmaline and then embark on the challenge to make it better. Cut and polish and now what to do with it? Next comes some silver metal, work it a bit and mix in the stone you just worked and like magic, there is a finished piece of jewelry. A one of a kind that no one has ever laid eyes on before. It is fun to take raw materials and turn them into a usable object or work of art.
If you are still here reading this tome I must mention my love of old things, toys, stamps, coins, books or what have you. It was only natural to pursue collecting stuff that I like. The thrill of the pursuit of a special rock or a rare artifact is much the same.
Back in the present, I don't have the eyes for the fine detail work of a lapidary or silversmith anymore. I still love to create but time and age have found ways to control how much I can do. And since I also enjoy other pursuits, mentioned above, I like to offer a treasure from time to time to other folk. Bottom line is that my store could have just about anything show up.
I hope you will visit my shop when you are in the neighborhood. Take time to enjoy the simple things in life. Relax, give someone a hug... and smile.
