Nice piece and quick delivery. Thank you. I really like this item because, when I look at it, I can't help but think of the folks whose hands this scrip passed through and the backbreaking work they performed day after day after day. It's difficult for me to even imagine a world without paid vacations, pensions, sick days, or disability. Makes me grateful to be living in our corner of the world as it is today. Looking at scrip truly is a bittersweet kind of thing.

we're just a couple creating necklaces from strange and old circulated coins, with an emphasis on coal mining scrip from the early 1900's-1910's.

the name oatie's comes from a mis-transcription on an old 1920 census. while doing research for a genealogy project, kaelen saw her great g-ma dottie's name listed as 'oatie', and the name stuck.

besides selling on etsy, we (kaelen and tom) love to browse around and have already gotten so many new ideas for projects. we want to go back to the land, buying as many local/handmade goods as possible, and learning how to be as self sufficient as we can.
