    Finding beauty in unexpected places

    My love of vintage started early. When I was six or seven, my dad gave me his old transistor radio. He showed me the dials, and we tuned in to hear The Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine”. That was the only music I ever heard through that little radio; every time I’ve flipped it on since, I’ve only gotten squeaks and squeals and static.

    This object became a treasure for its nostalgia and its aesthetics. With its candy apple red plastic and shiny silver speaker, the transistor looked so different from the functional 1980s clock radio we had in our house. Hearing that one song over the airways became a magical memory. I also remember my dad telling me about hiding this radio under his pillow and secretly listening to rock ‘n’ roll when he was a child. When I see this radio, I see a story.

    This is why I love buying and selling vintage. Vintage items have a built-in narrative, and the unknown story behind them captures my imagination. They connect us to history and humanity.

    Buying vintage also carries an element of redemption. We can discover forsaken or forgotten things and give them a new life with a place of honor in our homes or wardrobes.

    My history with Etsy began when I signed up as a buyer in 2006, and I have sold handmade and hand-lettered goods in my shop HarkIndustries. I love buying and selling in this creative community.

    I have a BFA in art with a concentration in graphic design, and I am slightly obsessed with typography and pattern. I create hand-lettered and illustrated paper good inspired by vintage textiles and dishes, old signage, and the lost art of penmanship.

    I am a singer/songwriter, wife, mom, and nerd, and my favorite night out is Korean Karaoke.

    Hark at Home exists to help you buy what you love, use what you have, and put it together in your own authentic style.
