Announcement   At the Mad Fish Market you'll find handmade bags, purses and pouches, as well as accessories and vintage items. I also make hemp jewelry and polymer clay beads. I like to use vintage and reclaimed fabrics as well as new, but taking something apart and making it in to something new is my favourite. I try to have a little of everything at great prices, and if you're looking for something original, different and unique, you're in the right place.
I sew on a 1911 treadle sewing machine that uses no electricity. This machine has been in my family for three generations, I love it!
I appreciate my customers' patience with shipping, updating, and custom orders. I have a disability that causes me chronic pain and can delay my ability to work or get to the post office, but I do my best to keep in contact and have items ready on time.

I do custom orders, please message me for availability.
Want to swap? I'd love a trade!

I always appreciate feedback, and please read the message to buyers when purchasing, as well as my shipping policies.

Proudly creating from Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA.

Thanks for visiting!

About

What I Had Lying Around

I really started making things out of stuff I happened to have. Then Gramma gave me boxes of fabric and it just took off. Gramma still hunts for fabrics for me, and I dig through piles in discount bins and thrift stores for the most fun and interesting fabrics I can find. I like to make that thing that's just right. I keep trying different styles because I know everyone wants something different, and so do I. A bag for every occasion!

    I inherited my grandmother's sewing machine and a pile of fabric. I use bags a lot and have always had a hard time finding one that was just right, so I figured I'd make my own. I love playing with colour.

Hi there, thank you for your interest in the Mad Fish Market.
I sew on a vintage treadle sewing machine, and acquire most of my fabrics though garage sales, thrift stores and antique stores. I upcycle and recycle all kinds of items, and I also hand-draw or create many items. I love to create, and when I sit down to do it, I never know what's going to come out next.

Additional policies and FAQs
All Mad Fish Market creations are one of a kind. I will not copy a previous creation exactly (sometimes this is also not possible), but I will make something similar to a previous creation.
I love custom orders! I'll try to make your idea a reality. Have a look at items I've previously created to get an idea of what I can do.
I am not able to make modifications to the hemp necklaces I sell. I weave them with knots and to make changes means I would have to undo all the knots. This is entirely too difficult, I apologize.
