dottiedee: mingling vintage and new materials and ideas
Like many people, I have always felt an emotional response to things reminiscent of the early years of my life. Show me a 1950 Ford and I remember the smell of the upholstery and the feel of the shiny stainless steel starter button. Over the past few years, I began collecting fabrics, clothing, and furniture from those days; I explored yard sales, estate sales, and auctions, searching for treasures. I started thinking about other uses for some of my finds, which led to tables and footstools made from old wooden cash drawers, windows with old glass imbedded in epoxy, purses made of vintage neckties, dresses fashioned from doilies. I have enjoyed gathering a few friends together to help them complete some of these project ideas.
The name dottiedee honors my mother, Dottie, and my mother-in-law, Thelba Dee, two wonderful women from those days who were truly my treasures.
Accepted payment methods
PLEASE NOTE that shipping charges include shipping AND HANDLING. I will do my best to avoid/refund any grossly miscalculated shipping costs, but I do include a small handling fee, which helps pay for time, shipping materials, and the gas it takes me to go to the post office. Thanks for understanding.
