Where creepy meets classy.

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 well as refurbished furniture for the gothic home. 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 7 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. 5 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 traveling the country with The Oddities & Curiosities Expo. 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 a showroom in my warehouse where my collection can be seen while I am not traveling as well as a permanent antique booth at Odana Antiques in Madison WI. 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 :-)
