Announcement   I created the Scavenged Parts etsy shop to help highlight our most unusual finds. I am a full time picker with a passion for the bizarre. I travel the Midwest to take part in local and regional vintage markets, fancy flea markets, hearse shows and so on. Feel free to message me if you are looking for a particular item or are interested in a custom piece because you just never know what I might have in stock. I specialize in the bizarre, unique and hard to find items such as antique medical and dental, antique Halloween decorations, rare books, art, funeral home pieces and memorial pieces. Follow ScavengedPARTs on Instagram and Facebook to see all of the new treasures and find out what markets and shows we will be at.

About

My Collection is Now my Full Time Job

I'm Sarah Thistle the founder and owner of Scavenged PARTs.
Even as a small girl I can remember countless days spent wandering around flea markets, garage sales and estate sales. At a very young age I began collecting items, fascinated with objects from the past. The stories and history of pieces intrigued me so much more than buying a new "soulless" object.
Over the years my tastes refined and I honed in on antique medical, dental and funerary items which are a lot of the items you will find in my shop. As my collection grew and more people had witnessed it I realized that I was not the only one that enjoyed these items. This made me want to show my collection to the world and share pieces with other collectors. It lead up to me starting my own business 5 years ago. It started out as a part time job and the more I did with it the more I realized it was my calling. A couple years ago now I took the leap and quit my job and have been a full time entrepreneur ever since. I never liked the idea of being stuck in one place and I love to travel so the majority of my business is on the road doing flea markets, pop up markets, antique shows, hearse shows, zombie festivals and anywhere else my items fit in. I started the etsy shop so I could reach more people and be able to stay in contact with customers I meet when I'm on the road. I also have an antique booth locally so I have a bit of a home base. Owning my own business takes up the majority of my life but I wouldn't trade it for anything. It is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Thanks for taking the time to read my story and explore my shop :-)
