Announcement    PLEASE READ - In the next few weeks I will be closing my shop and reopening in February/March of 2019. During this break I will use this time to as a production period to stock my shop. I am changing my shop platform and how I offer my product to my customers. Going forward, all my product will be ready to ship and inventory will be what is on hand. I will also be eliminating my deluxe dress line and focusing solely on my casual cotton dresses and accessories. Currently, I process orders as they come in. Processing as orders come in creates a lot of stress for me. I pride myself on offering quality product in a timely manner. While I have never missed a customer deadline, the thought and stress of missing a deadline often gets the best of me. By offering my product in various sizes and ready to ship, I'm hoping this will allow me to better serve my clients, myself and my family. Outside of running this Etsy shop, I work another part-time job (M, W, F), I'm a mom, a wife, a Girl Scout Leader and a Disney Travel Planner. Trying to balance all of this can get a bit tricky at times. Needless to say, the balancing act is requiring me to rethink how I offer my products to my customers so that I can provide them with a quality costume/dress and still find time for life. The most important thing to me is offering a quality product that both you and I can be proud of. Thank you for your patience during this transitioning period. I do hope you will come back and visit after the start of the new year!

About

Hoping to bring a bit of imagination to you and yours....

Welcome! The Pauper's Castle began in 2010 as a small space inside an antique mall taking reclaimed vintage items, anything from furniture to linens, and re-purposing them for a modern lifestyle. Oh how things have changed.

While I still enjoy re-purposing, I have found a love of creating costumes for my daughter. In conclusion, I had found a second passion...sewing! But more importantly, that passion is about watching her get lost in imagination. While she is acting out her favorite character scenes, I find myself getting lost in imagination with her. I cherish these moments as I know they are short.

I remember a costume my mom made for me when I was little. The very costume I won 1st place in a Halloween costume party. I remember how special I felt twirling in that dress and the hours of fun I had dressing up in my little purple princess dress. I wanted to be able to give that back to my daughter. After much prompting from friends and people we have met, I have decided to offer some of these creations to you.

I am a self taught sewer that likes the challenge of creating detail and optimistically... perfection. Although I know this can't be. Hopefully you will find as much fun and imagination as we have.

I am blessed to be married to my best friend who not only encourages me, but is willing to help with any project I throw at him.

My life is full....I'm amazed and completely grateful to God for all that He brings to my life. My wonderful husband, my beautiful and life fulfilling little girl, and all the opportunities he has provided. We shall see what else this little journey of life will bring.

To be continued....For now, I am along for the ride!

The Pauper's Castle came to be from my love of vintage textiles and furniture. While I still love re-purposing my vintage finds, as time has passed I have found a love of creating costumes for my daughter and watching her get lost in imagination. I hope to share a little bit of fantasy and imagination with your family.
