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.

Shipping
I pack and ship all packages with my friend Lynne and sometimes orders take a bit of time to get to if I am busy. I have changed my delivery time to 1-2 weeks so that you will know your treasures might take more time than ordering from a large chain store with several employees. I am hoping you understand it is just us packing your order and I want it to be pretty so it could take a little bit of time to send it on it's way. Two days a week we pack and the rest of the week is spent managing, shooting photos answering questions, counting &washing , finding great supplies and all the other parts of bringing this shop to life.
I pack all packages in the order they come in unless I get a special request for a rush order.


if you would like to insure your package,
please contact me and i will adjust shipping costs for you.
