Everyone Deserves Some Pretty In Their Lives

I'm a bit of a tumbleweed with a tendency to wander a fair bit, and I'm currently based in India. I kept finding pretty things and wishing I had a shop to sell them in, so here I am. I like found items because they have a story of their own and have had past lives. Some of my stuff (like the stationery) isn't old or used, but some stuff is.

I also make some handmade things such as the dolls and some of the ornaments; I sew and embroider and I like sharing my work with the world.

All in all this shop will feature my crafts, as well as found items. It's going to be a bit quirky because that's who I am.

I also believe that luxury should be affordable, which is why some of my more luxe pieces are not going to be overpriced or over the top. I think everyone deserves some pretty in their lives.

    Since I sell found items, it's hard to know who made what; it's also why I usually only have one of each item.
