Love it!! Anything vintage from Knoxville makes my heart happy.
I love antique maps and vintage paper. I was a collector before I was a seller. Please enjoy as I do!
I started Etsy when I was graduate student. I quit a decent job in the business world to study Theology full-time. I finished my MA in Theological Studies in 2010. Now, I am the pastor of Marquette Missionary Church and am using Etsy to help me pay back student loans! My wife and I also foster three brothers.
Timothy Adam, the brains behind www.handmadeology.com and Etsy shop owner timothyadamdesigns.etsy.com is good buddy of mine from college. He introduced me to Etsy. It was exciting for me to hear how his business took off. Eventually he quit his job to pursue his art full time.
Winters in the Midwest are cold. November 2008 I didn't have money to pay the gas bill. I decided I had two options. I could liquidate some of my stuff or I could get real cold real fast. I have always picked up old books that had neat maps in them for my own personal enjoyment. I have some framed in my apartment. So I decided to sell some of my old maps. Things have progressed and so far the heat has stayed on!
My wife has also opened a shop selling light switch plates. Check out her work creativeordinary.etsy.com
Selling vintage prints posed a bit of an ethical dilemma for me. For as much as I love old prints, I love old books. However, many of the books I find are unloved. I save them from flea markets and antique stores where they are left to rot or even be thrown away to make room for more popular items. By framing these prints, you will enjoy the the print more than it was ever enjoyed inside the book, only seen a few times!

I ship First Class USPS for all orders. Recent increases to postage on international orders has made it quite costly and shipping delays on top of that have caused me to no longer offer international shipping, including to Canada.
