* * * *

Folk City is a creative endeavor I began in January 2010, 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 Folk City shop, you'll find a unique collection of eclectic vintage items that have been used and loved in their previous lives, as well as a variety of one-of-a-kind handmade creations.

In the years since I founded Folk City, 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 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.

I'm excited to announce the launch of Folk City Fiber Studio, featuring hand-dyed and hand-painted yarns in natural fibers, perfect for your knitting, crocheting, and weaving projects. Yarn kits and patterns for inspiration will also be available.

Thanks for visiting!
