Love Dove Trading; A Magpies Paradise.

‪I have always been drawn to crafting, but I could never seem to settle on any particular craft. I tried my hand at various skills including drawing random doodles, making little objects out of scraps of discarded projects, painting, creating jewelry and even creating mosaics out of those little bits.
At one point, I found myself collecting all the beach glass I could find out near my grandmothers, at the very tip of Long Island Beach. I would mosaic them onto old window frames, and doors, anything really. They sold too, but mostly to my father who used them to decorate his cabin in Vermont. Up in Vermont there is an entire cabin bedazzled with Long Island beach glass, and believe me, it is glorious.
Eventually I realized the one common thread of all my crafts….collecting scraps. Everywhere I went I was always picking up treasures, like a magpie. I would squirrel them away until I could create some magical amalgamation, a reimagining of the items they once were. Love Dove Trading was then born as a reincarnation of my attempts to create art. My shop specializes in all things upcycled, raw and vintage materials that form the inspiration of creations yet to be formed.
I offer a variety of items, but my favorite items are always those born in paper. I love the smell of paper, the heft of old books in my hands. When I was a child, my mother would try to put me to bed, but would come back only to find me sobbing. The solution was to surround me with books. Paper was my security blanket, and it continues to be so now. There is something truly enchanting in the reuse of paper, especially when words or notes have been instilled upon them. I am proud to say that Love Dove Trading has been featured in Brides Magazine for my vintage map tags; but I am even more proud to say that I am dedicated to providing a level of customer service you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere. I am proud to celebrate, and help, magpies everywhere find their medium.
