Welcome to Little Marigold Shop!

I have been making things most of my life. I can remember looking through a kids craft book when I was very young and deciding that I wanted to make every single thing in the book. I would show each page to my mom asking her if we had what would take to make each item. Even though some of the projects were unrealistic for my age or what we had on hand, it didn't stop me from always trying to find something else to make. Animals from felt scraps, popsicle stick creations, woven potholders (on those little kid looms), then on to sewing barbie clothes and then an afghan of knitted diamond shapes from scraps of yarn. I helped my cousin make "perfume" with flowers and water and made tiny homes out of mud, sticks and grass. My desire to make all kinds of things was never ending.

One thing I have discovered in all this making, is that lots of people value the creative spirit and goods that are handmade. It's the homespun uniqueness and the care given to well made items that makes them desirable. Many shoppers are steering away from mass produced merchandise, and moving towards supporting the craftsperson, the entrepreneur who provides quality over quantity. And you are appreciated!

I have also learned that lots of folks don't have the time to craft the things they want, or find it frustrating, but still love having their own handcrafted possessions. That's why I'm here! Little Marigold is the shop where you can get a variety of lovingly handmade goods as gifts for others, or something you want for yourself. With every item I create, the ingredients are carefully chosen by me. Whether it is a special yarn for a baby blanket, a special color of crystal for earrings or the organic oil used in my homegrown calendula salve. I strive to choose the ingredient that is best suited for the project. The skills I have learned throughout my life are my essential tools when creating each item. My products are made with you, my dear patron, and your satisfaction as the foremost goal.

Many of my items are shipped free and if you have any questions I can answer them in the messages. So take a stroll around Little Marigold Shop and find something you love!
