About

A Little Shop Where We Don't Know What We Are

Cardinal Curiosities was a name born out of confusion. I just like too much stuff.

I love scrapbooking, jewelry making, re-purposing old stuff, fixing and tinkering, and basically any "new" craft that comes along.

I am a teacher (5th grade) by trade - but always had a love of art and music. My grandpa started me early - I tagged along with him as he took classes on everything from jewelry making, stained glass, to photography. He even taught me how to crochet!

My foster parents taught me sewing, gardening, painting, ceramics, and a love for nature and animals. My mother taught me a love of woodworking and natural materials. My dad taught me music - we both played clarinet, and I later learned the viola. He also had a love "for the finer" things - I think he's why I love diamonds.... hmmm....

So now I am here, making what I love with the ones I love. My small family of a husband and two kitties. Life is too short to limit yourself to one love - LOVE IT ALL!

  • Lydia Beth McKinney

    Owner, Designer, Maker, Curator, I Do It All!

    I am an avid crafter, jewelry maker, scrapbooker, and all-around art freak. I am addicted to Snoopy and chocolate. I am a 5th grade teacher. I am married to an amazing man named Dennis who is my inspiration.

  • Minnie

    Designer, Maker, Assistant Designer

    Minnie wandered her way into my heart as a tiny kitten. She was hired after a lengthy 30 sec.interview snuggle process. She will be making her debut, soon, because I have discovered her teeth marks in a metal piece on which I am currently working.

  • Tinkerbell AKA Sargent Tink

    Curator, Security

    Because I often work with valuable materials, a security guard was needed. So, my husband and I (as the commercial suggested) employed a rescue panther. Tink will tear your arm off if you mess with my stuff.

Welcome to the Cardinal Curiosities Store where I offer refurbished, re-purposed, newly created, and just plain "who knows" stuff! You never know what I'll have here, so please visit often! I strive to always provide quality items. I carefully inspect, repair and clean all vintage items unless the patina is part of the charm! I am a self-taught artist, so please expect the handmade quality of the piece to be part of its overall charm and appeal.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment through PayPal. I love PayPal because it's fast, and SAFE! Missouri State Sales Tax (currently 7.725%) is applicable to all Illinois orders.

I also accept payment through Etsy. I accept their gift cards as well!
Shipping
I mainly ship using USPS. Small items may go out USPS First Class Mail and some others go out USPS Priority Mail. I am always super careful about packing because I want the item that I worked hard on to arrive to you in one piece! I ship as quickly as I can. If there are any unforseen delays, I'll let you know ASAP. If an item absolutely needs UPSP Priority or faster, please convo me. I currently only ship to the United States. If you are in Canada, please convo me and we will work something out.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will take any item back for any reason and refund your purchase price less shipping. You'll have to pay to ship it back to me - sorry.
Additional policies and FAQs
SORRY - but if you live in Missouri, you'll have to pay our crummy sales tax which is currently 7.725% where I ship from - the tax is only on the item price.
