About

The story of Who Knows What

One night while my husband was watching a game with my boys I thought it might be fun to open a shop selling Who Knows What?
I had an attic full of vintage items ,,,old hats and bags to name a few. I started out with not a clue of what it might turn out like.
When I went in my attic I saw my stash of beads. I had designed jewelry since....well way back, many of the beads had found their way to the attic, and that was only the beginning.
The real crazy part of this silly story is about the beads in the shed.........you see, in the 80's I bought a shed, filled it with old beads. and well... it was a bit of an addiction.They sat and many were used. But even if I stayed up all night ( and many nights I did) I would never use all these beads myself.
Which leads me to the really crazy part.... My darling husband bought a tractor and needed the shed. One day ...cringe..I threw the beads I could not fit in my basement behind the shed. They sat...and sat...and sat...till I was taking "Moxie" my little dog out for a walk in the woods behind the shed. It was winter , I saw these tiny painted metal flowers, some of the paint had chipped, the metal was rusted and they were ...
B E A U T I F U L!!!!!!!!
I could not take the picture fast enough! These little beads were perfect! And now this is the most bazaar part of this true but crazy story. When I would poke around in the dirt looking for a bead..... Moxie would start to dig , and I mean he would not stop till every bead was "unearthed". There were all kinds of beads there, most really dirty...and the cleaning began.
Who Knows What is a little quirky shop with a funny little story. I hope it makes you smile.
