Announcement   Welcome to our shop! We have been collecting small decorative items from many countries for many years. We especially love unique arts and crafts pieces made with love by the artisans. We enjoy the hunt for vintage treasures to add to our collection and to offer to others. We also love to take photos when we travel!

While living in Mexico, we learned to appreciate the time and effort put into simple everyday objects that not only were utilitarian but also works of art. Lovely to look at, they also served a purpose. An inherited object will have no meaning for the new owner unless it was something seen and enjoyed often! Try to use or at least display your treasures that you find, that will give meaning and sentiment to others so they won't end up forgotten or tossed in the future.

Interesting new and old found items sometimes are reworked into jewelry or art objects in our shop and presented for sale. We have found it to be very relaxing and pleasurable to design these Mariposa Originals handcrafted pieces. Maybe one will remind you of a favorite place, happy moment or just make you feel good when you wear it.

We have been selling for over 15 years on our website, at an antique mall and on ebay. When it stops being fun, we will quit!

About

Keep busy doing what you love!

After retiring, I keep busy collecting and selling vintage arts and crafts that I search for both in Mexico and in the Chicagoland area. I also love to travel, take photographs and then have copies printed that I mat to offer for sale.
