I love to work with my hands and create. Using (paper) objects that have become obsolete to someone else, I can use to create new, beautiful things. Like a roadmap or a sheet of music-paper: fold, cut and glue it and you’ve got an awesome envelope! How great is it to receive that kind of mail? I visit the thrift store as often as I can, looking for hidden treasures and forgotten gems. I’d love to share them with you, so hence my little shop. Feel free to look around and check out my blog [], where I regularly post about my work, shop and fun tutorials you can do yourself.

I always fantasize about what the previous owner was like, what the object meant to them and why it wasn’t needed anymore. So included, with every item, is a short story I imagine what it was like. Just for fun :)

I’m also always trying to improve my products, so if you think my designs still need something, please convo me your ideas! If you’re looking for a specific item and can’t find it, convo me with what you need and I might pick it up and create it! (custom orders are off course always possible).

Additional policies and FAQs
> Every item is checked before sending to ensure the best possible quality.
> Because I usually don’t know where the objects come from, I can’t promise it’s smoke- or petfree.
> All items have been tested on endurance, and so far they’ve survived everything. Do keep in mind it’s not made to throw around or sleep on :)
> I’m a graphic designer by trade and value quality a lot, I would NEVER send or sell a product I’m not 100% sure of. I expect this from all products I buy, so it’s only natural to me to keep the same standards for mine.

> Ideas and feedback are very welcome, because I want to design stuff YOU like! So please don't hesitate to convo me your ideas and thoughts.
