This Handmade Life

To me it's all about the final act of making things. I come from a family of builders and problem solvers, so it is a family tradition to sit around the dinner table and come up with ridiculous schemes and unconventional ways to solve everyday problems.

I really enjoy giving new life to old things. It always bums me out when I go into these huge stores and see all this new stuff everywhere, I just always felt we had enough already. Which is part of why I started this site! I also run which is empty right now but I am thinking of filling with my photographs. I also really enjoy helping my pretty lady with her shop at

When I am not making stuff, I enjoy hanging out with my pretty wife, petting my two awesome dogs, and swimming in large bodies of water. Not ponds. I don't play that. I also like to work on my old truck, and fix old houses. I used to be a pretty good photographer, now I am good enough for me. I eat a lot of vegetables but not exclusively, once again, I don't play that. I drink coffee, water, beer, and whiskey. On the best days, in that order.

I enjoy this handmade life.

Returns and exchange details

Items for exchange will be accepted within the first 30 days for the following three reasons: loss in the mail; damage to the item during shipping; you don't love the item (each case will be evaluated individually). Please contact us for return shipping address.

PLEASE be sure to accurately measure yourself prior to purchasing clothing. We measure all of our clothing in inches. Feel free to contact us for help or information about proper sizing.
Please pay as quickly as possible after purchasing an item. If for any reason you are unable to pay immediately, feel free to contact us to let us know where you stand and if you need us to hold the item for you. In the event of non-payment, we will try and contact you; if we do not hear back from you or receive payment within 24 hours, the item will be re-listed and we will contact Etsy admin to report a non-payment.
All U.S. orders ship out with USPS First Class within two business days of payment received. Orders received on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday ship out the following Monday.

All of the items we ship come with tracking information, which is available through the Purchases section of your Etsy account. We do not include insurance, but it is available upon request for an additional cost.

If for some reason you need your item sooner, birthday, wedding, valentines, any number of other things that we forget about until it gets super close! Please let us know and we will be happy to give you a quote to expedite shipping to get you gear as soon as possible. In the case of clothing this can be an extra $5-10. Luggage is tougher to estimate due to the size so please convo for a quote. We are here to help.

Methods vary depending on the destination country as well as the size and weight of the item. Feel free to contact us for international shipping quotes if one is not included in the listing or if you feel that the shipping is too high.

Please be aware that you will be responsible for any taxes or customs fees charged by your home country. Check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs. We are NOT responsible for any fees once the item has left our care. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR UK BUYERS! You should be prepared for the possibility of paying VAT plus a Royal Mail fee upon receipt.
Additional policies and FAQs
All measurements are taken with garment lying flat. Chest measurements are measured armpit-to-armpit, then doubled. We try our best to provide the correct sizing information, and given that all of our items are vintage garments, the sizes are measured in inches. You will want to double check your measurements before ordering to ensure a proper fit. Also, check out our exchange policy. When in doubt, contact us for help!

We are always happy to reserve an item for you! We can hold items for up to 10 days. If for any reason you aren't able to purchase during this timeframe please let us know, otherwise the item will be re-listed and available for others to purchase.

Etsy is not a flea market - we put a lot of work into creating, finding, organizing, photographing, and listing our items. We price our items according to the effort it has taken to bring them to the fingertips of you, the customer. You are always welcome to inquire about prices, but please understand that those prices are firm.

Please understand when purchasing vintage and pre-worn items, that in most cases they are used. There may be scuffs and stains from normal use. I think this gives them character and you are helping the planet. If you have specific concerns regarding a piece, please feel free to ask.
