We're a humble little shop that hopes to spread sunshine one handmade pretty at a time! :)
I began Quirk Shop in 2010 in my unending quest to never apply my Textiles and Merchandising degree in a 9-5 fashion. I’m just a [nerdy] girl with a passion for making things and making people feel special! I believe with a little love, hard work and a splash of sunshine, I can create more than something handmade--I can create memories. THAT is my ultimate goal in running Quirk Shop! It is a wondrous thing to come in contact with a kindred spirit who appreciates our work and handmade treasures! I enjoy using recycled or eco-chic products--to give old things new purpose. I love statement hair accessories, flavored lip gloss, folk music, tea, and the word "wonky." I adore my friends and have the best family in the entire world! Their endless support and feedback have been the glue that holds this shop together! I always appreciate new inspirations and love a challenge so please get a hold of me with custom ideas. Thanks for reading! Thanks for looking! Peace, love, hearts and stars! :)
Around the web
Hello there! My name is Michele (pronounced Mi-kay-luh)! I am the 'owner' of this humble little Quirk Shop! At the end of the day, I am just a girl who loves to create. And a girl blessed enough to be able to do just that every single day! :)
The Official Quirk Shop Mascot!
All Quirk items come from a smoke free, pet friendly home! :) Here is our sweet bully, Gretel! She's around for the entire creative process and likes to help out by playing with the iron and snuggling during a hearty idea round-up on Pinterest!
Gramma / Madaline
This is my wonderful Gramma! She makes delightful lovelies for me to sell (like rag rugs, bags, and lots of crocheted goodies)! The shop is a much brighter place because of her!
This is Dane--microbiologist by day, superhero by night, and the official Quirk photographer! He's also a pretty amazing husband who puts up with my workshop ever expanding into his 'man cave'... :)
In my shop, you’ll find a variety of goods! I don’t have a specialty, but am instead inspired by fabric, friends, and google. More likely than not, the fabric used in my projects was discovered in a clearance bin, at a garage sale, or flea market (don’t worry, it’s all pre-washed!) and turned into something magical! So please check back often for new listings! (It also wouldn’t hurt to like Quirk Shop on Facebook for updates, either!) I’m just a girl with a passion for creating out-of-the-ordinary things for extra-ordinary people. Organza, folk music, felt, my hubby Dane, and Gretel (the bulldog) are a few of my favorite things. I truly enjoy working with recycled and/or unique materials and appreciate inspiration and new ideas from potential buyers/friends such as you, so please feel free to contact me with custom projects. Happy shopping and thank you so much for looking!
All of my items come from a smoke-free, cootie-free, dog-friendly home.
OH! And always remember to whistle while you Quirk…(insert whistle from a chorus of happy dwarfs)!

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS--I love international shoppers so pleas inquire about international shipping if your home is not listed! Due to a change in United States Post Office policy, international shipping has gotten a bit tricky! Prices have drastically increased. I apologize and try to keep shipping as reasonable as possible. Also, I ship to your ETSY address! So please verify it is correct!
Refunds and Exchanges
Please note--In the event a return option is available and discussed, I would appreciate prompt mailing of the item back to me. In the event more than two weeks passes prior to the date we agreed upon a return/refund, the return/refund will be void. On many cases, I will issue a full refund. This DOES NOT include shipping and will likely include a re-stocking fee that varies upon the price of your purchase. Thanks for understanding!
Additional policies and FAQs
Should I upgrade an existing, in stock item to a custom order for you (example, if it is the last item of its kind in stock), you will have 24 hours to purchase the listing. I appreciate your understanding on this one, but last chance items usually have a lot of possible buyers and I want to give everyone an opportunity to purchase!
If we are collaborating on a custom order where custom colors are chosen, I will not ship your order until I have sent photos of the practially finished product and heard back that it is everything you wanted! I want you to love your order sadly sometimes things don't turn out exactly how we think...I'm a doulbe check-er! Again, I appreciate your understanding and patience!
I cannot be held responsible for a delay in the shipment of a custom order. I want each custom order to be the best it can be and if a snag arises (such as unavailability of fabric, change in design, complication in execution, etc) I will not ship simply because a date was set. Quality is more important to me! I will do my best to work everything out and still get your order shipped by the agreed date but I do appreciate understanding and patience should such a snag occur.
Whewy, that is a lot! :) I am hopeful that makes custom orders smooth, exciting and fun! As I said, I really enjoy them! So if you see anything you like and want to add a personal twist, please get a hold of me! I look forward to it.
