About

Vintage + Modern= A new kind of Couture

My background is in theatrical design. In theatre you have to know how to do a little bit of everything. Want that chair in a different color? How about decorating the inside of a machine shop? A millinery shop? Working on both coasts and now living in the middle of everything I like to take all of my skills and use them to crate one of a kind items.
My knitting skills can combine with hat making and a vintage holiday quirky style and I can make a one of a kind item that will bring a smile to your face. I love to scour antique shows, yard sales and flea markets for lost and unwanted objects to give them a second life.

    Who says that vintage objects can't have new life breathed into them? I believe that every object has a story to tell; why limit the words?

  • Nippersink Mink

    Shop Mascot, Mink Farm Escapee

    Nippersink Mink is the mink that lives in the pond behind the house at the edge of a forest preserve. Nippersink Mink escaped the mink farm and happily swims in the pond in the summer months. In winter months Nippersink Mink is mysterious.

Welcome to my shop! I hope to provide unique handmade items that mesh together modern and vintage looks.
I have one foot in the city and one in the country and I like to think of the mink that lives in the pond in the back yard (an escapee from the local mink farm) as my mascot; stylish, mysterious, and a lover of everything unique.
