Born and raised in York, Maine, I AM definitely part mermaid! After five years of having my Etsy shop, I have been able to live and work a salty lifestyle full time! I've gone from sitting at a computer all day, to spending sunny days at the beach, and rainy or cold days, crafting and packing orders. I feel very fortunate to have an occupation that allows me to paddleboard on the job!

We wander Maine beaches, listening to the crashing surf and breathing in the salty air collecting beachy trinkets to use for our crafts. Each piece of sea glass, beach pottery, and driftwood has an untold story; some dating back hundreds of years!

Stay salty,
Cherie (a/k/a Salty Girl)
