Really dope gift. My lover has yet to take it off.
These colors are one of my favorite combinations but the comments on the charms is what really stands out about them. Would rate as 6 stars if I could.
Really like this ring and the seller is super quick at shipping items.

Enjoying the hand me down, second hand, recycle-reuse life!
I started my shop with direct inspiration from my life.
I grew up with crafty pickers and reclaimed/salvaged goods artists.
My birth mother would reclaim leather jackets from second hand shops and turn them into couture bags. My grandmother went to Welder's School and worked as an equipment diver. It was fun having full sized Heavy Metal Sculptures from reclaimed metals as birthday presents. My family would go picking at nights while I slept (when I got older I got to tag along).
I spent a large part of my life in antique stores and thrift shops. When I wasn't eye-high in stacks of old books and funky silverware, I was on the road looking for the next awesome vintage "honey hole".
I grew up, and became my own person, a Social Media enthusiast/blogger with a passion for Shabby Chic, Crochet, and handmade. But I still live in thrift shops, and I still look at everything with a "what can I turn that into" or "I know someone would cherish that" eye.
I've recently started stamp carving, and learning to reclaim/recycle yarn from luxury sweaters!
Owner, Maker, Curator, Critters, Collectibles, And Crafts
A constant busy-body, I "retired" from a big bad corporate job in Social Media to work for a couple of start-up companies. Overtime, I realized the only way to be happy in life is to do a job that makes you happy! And that's how I ended up here :)
This shop was created with the good intentions of spreading the love of Vintage/Retro/New Old Stock crafty items and handmade gifts made while on our adventures!
I grew up being a "picker" and Vintage Lover. Over time, I've developed a love of the open road and travel. My goal is to share my adventures across America with Vintage and Wanderlust enthusiasts like you!
All my items are stored in a Smoke free Household, that is Dog friendly. Note, Bender Oak the dog does not put on Fancy Vintage Dresses, adorn himself with Handmade Jewelry, and then frolic around my house drinking from Retro Tea-Cup sets. Because that would be AWESOME, and we would probably have our own TV Show.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I use Flat Rate shipping, as it prevents Headaches for me, Saves Time for both of us, and you're sure to get your items safely to you. In the rare event your item does not get to you safely, via my standard Flate Rate, First Class, or Priority Flat Rate, there are some measures in place to protect both the buyer and seller so that no one loses their shirt.
UPDATE: I started a new job with some very unusual hours, so please allow approximately 1-2 business days for me to get your item to the Post Office. If you need something ASAP, message me as soon as you a ready to purchase so I can clear my schedule.
Combined Shipping Costs are approximate. If you'd like to buy more items, message me with what you are interested in, and I'll see how much of it I can "Gently" cram into a flat rate box and get to your safely!
Refunds and Exchanges
As most of my items are Unique/One of a Kind, I am unable to exchange for Like items, and while the value of my items is often higher than what I am selling them for, an exchange for a different item is not possible.
Please contact me first regarding Refunds.
if you have an item that was damaged or destroyed in the mail, I require an image of the damage. This is for documentation regarding Loss/Damage, and so that I can file a claim, if needed on the item. A refund for the cost of the item will be issued. Depending on the extent of the damage, I will try and pursue a refund of the cost of shipping from the Post Office for both of us.
Refund due to loss of shipment in mail - Most items (except books and special requests) are shipped either by Priority, or via First Class with Delivery Conf. If an item is lost in the mail, a refund for the cost of the item only will be provided.
Additional policies and FAQs
PS: Are you a Fiber Artist, Supplier, or Indie-Dyer? Do you produce/sell Fibers, Rovings, Yarn, Stitch Markers, or other Crochet/Knitting supplies? If so, I LOVE YOU, and I am open to trades. Feel free to contact me if interested in something. Before there was money, there was Barter, and after money is gone (Zombies destroy the economy) there will be Barter again.
