About

Creative Retirement

I am a creative 81 year old independent entrepreneur; born and raised in Texas and still in Texas. My shop, Old Wellhouse, has a wide variety of handmade and vintage goods.

Old Wellhouse opened June 9, 2011, to help get rid of my 80 year accumulation of collectibles. I have always been creative and since retirement; I have put these creative juices to work by adding handmade potato and carrot jewelry and leather accessories.

My workspace began on a card table and the kitchen counter. I needed more room, so I sold a trundle bed and took over a small bedroom in my apartment.

My inventory still includes vintage items and potato and carrot jewelry; a forgotten art form. I began working with leather and added leather accessories to the shop.The leather pieces are custom made for the individual. Each is one of a kind, hand sculpted and painted. My flower garden inspires me because of the beautiful colors, textures, and shapes. New pieces are added as current trends and colors evolve.

When purchasing supplies and vintage items, I look for reasonably priced, quality supplies made in the USA. The feel and smell of leather are enjoyable to me. I look for soft garment leather in rich, vibrant colors to create beautiful accessories for men and women.

I strive to ship as soon as possible and try to meet my customer’s request. I find myself wanting to work 24 hours a day as the designer, creator, office staff, purchasing agent, marketing director, event planner and janitor. There are no other employees in my shop and I love every minute of being an Etsy shop owner.
