About

Alternative Designs

When other little girls were playing with barbie dolls, I was playing with dusty, vintage treasures that my grandparents had collected over the years. In truth, they were pack rats. They kept almost everything they ever owned and stashed it away in the various storage sheds (or school buses they had purchased at auctions) on their farm. I am grateful of those fond memories because in retrospect, they are the reason I create upcycled items today. Those days spent on their farm taught me the value of items most people label as useless. To use an item that would otherwise be discarded and give it new value in the eyes of someone else is my main motivation behind my business.
