About

Handcrafted & Repurposed goods direct from the beaches & Boats of LBI & Barnegat Light. Fill your home with Local LBI Love from my Etsy Shop.

Drifting Purpose, LLC, began with an idea based on our unique opportunity of living on the Jersey Shore. This is where we collect the Ocean's Bounty, while walking the beaches and enjoying the sounds of the waves. We take pride in making sure that most of the items created in our shop are found right here on Long Beach Island. Our Scallop Shells come straight from the docks at Viking Village in Barnegat Light, as well as all of our Genuine Sea Glass and Driftwood. We buy our other items (i.e. Starfish, urchins, etc) from other Etsy Sellers and Small Family Businesses to help support Small Businesses like us.

Re-purposing the Ocean's Bounty has also given us the chance to help keep our beaches clean of debris and trash. This is our way of saying Thank you to Ocean, while giving back to our community we love.

Drifting Purpose, LLC takes pride in providing customers with original work whether it is handwritten or handmade. Kate is constantly challenging herself to create new and unique items, while staying ahead of the trends/desires of her customer base. Kate's Sketch Book is a window into Who and Why, Drifting Purpose, LLC. was created.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Drifting Purpose, LLC. Check back often as Kate's newest obsession is Resin!

Frequently asked questions

If I buy Atlantic Sea Scallops for my wedding or restaurant will they all look the same?

No, they will not look the same. Just like you and me, we are different. Each shell offers something unique. Since they are dredged from the Ocean's Floor, they often have other things living on them causing discolorations, not to mention the muck on the Ocean's Floor. Again, these shells are dredged and will have some chipping on the edges, but can be sanded down. They are not pure white.

Can Drifting Purpose donate an item to our organization?

Currently, we only donate to local organizations who encourage and offer support within our community. While we do appreciate and welcome new donation opprotunities, we would like to continue to help only on the local level at this time. With that said, please do not inquire regarding donations unless you can provide a 501(c)3 Tax ID, a mailing address reflecting New Jersey status, & a Mission Statement from your organization. Thank you for your interest and your consideration.

What are your shop hours?

While Drifting Purpose is always open on Etsy, I may not respond to your conversation after 6pm EST and on Sunday's. Rest assured, I will respond the next business day by 9am EST. As always, I appreciate your interest.

Care instructions

All wreaths sold on Drifting Purpose are for indoor only, unless otherwise stated. Due to the Fragile natural items, whether accents or Scallop Shells used on each wreath, Please do not place on a door or or between a storm door. The glue used is industrial strength, but may deteriorate and discolor if left in direct sunlight and heat.

If your wreath or decorative items require dusting, please lightly dust with a dry rag or feather duster.

Custom and personalized orders

When it comes to personalized handwritten orders, it's important we get it right the first time. So, I will send you 3 photos of "rough" sketches for you to view and choose. This way, you get a choice in what you want and I get to make sure there are no mistakes before creating. I am human, so occasionally this does happen. But rest assured, I won't create until we get it right! After all, I am working not just for you, but with you!

Reserved Listing vs Custom Order Information

A Reserved Listing with Drifting Purpose, LLC is different than a Custom Listing. A "Reserved Listing" is typically a generic or non-personalized item. Therefore, please be aware that a Reserved Listing will only be "Reserved" for 72 hours. Anytime after that, it will be release to the public to purchase.

A Custom Order, must be purchased prior to beginning the work. It will come in the form of a Convo, that only you can see. As always, we appreciate and value you. Thank you!
