Where in the world is FoLKCiTY?

FoLKCiTY is not a place. . . it's a state of mind.

folk

FOLKCiTY is a creative endeavor I began in January 2009, combining various aspects of my life's work — as an artist, as a woman passionate about preserving the tradition of creating things by hand that are both useful and beautiful, and as a treasure hunter who loves the stories that vintage and antique curiosities hold.

Here in my FoLKCiTY Etsy shop, my current focus is on hand-dyed yarn and other fiber-related items—this goes hand-in-hand with my work as a knitwear designer (please visit my Ravelry shop at folkcitystudio). From time to time, I will continue to offer a variety of one-of-a-kind handmade creations including scarves and shawls, herbal apothecary products, as well as a few unique eclectic vintage items that have been used and loved in their previous lives.

In the years since I founded FoLKCiTY, its 'souvenirs' have been featured on websites and shipped to Etsy customers across the U.S. and around the globe — to Canada, Europe, South America, Asia, and Australia. My patrons include fashion designers, interior designers, Broadway theater props masters, gallery owners, magazine editors, photographers, ballerinas, beauty queens, musicians, painters, poets, lovers of vintage & handmade goodness — in other words. . . folks like you.

Thanks for visiting!
