Love this hand made beauty! It is way better in person and has a lovely weightiness to it. I enjoy your packaging, as always! ;)

every item has a story and doesn't mind you if you layer your personal story on top of it. coupled lifestories are good.

for twenty years, i have been having stoop sales (back in my brooklyn days) and garage sales (now in my texas days). purging and restyling my life has always been one of my favorite things to do.

having just earned my MFA in communication design, i started selling my favorite things on etsy to help pay for my tuition through graduate school. by the grace of God, i eeked by without a loan. mind you, i didn't have shoes, but had no loan. haha.

your purchases will help me save up for a printing press. any and every purchase is appreciated. please take a look at my other shop with my creative work to see anything there tickles your fancy.
