About

Fabric, prints, paper goods, vintage items, and more, crafted and curated with "modern vintage" flair!

When I was 10 years old I had a small store in my bedroom, where I sold things I had made, from stickers (images drawn with marker on hand-cut Avery labels) to stationery, baked Play-Doh jewelry, and more. I would make weekly newsletters for my customers (the other kids in the neighborhood), and give out discount cards and coupons to "regulars". This was all before the age of home computers, when Pong was the only home video game, so everything was done by hand and on my parents' typewriter, and I liked it that way. I usually saved any money I made and kept track of it in a ledger, but sometimes I would "splurge" a little and spend some of it at the local drug store on...you guessed it...penny candy!

After 20 years working in the design industry, I decided to go back to my roots and open up a "real" shop, where customers around the world are in my neighborhood, and I sell not only things I've made, but things others can use in their own crafty projects.

My work is usually bold and colorful, for at least two reasons: 1) In real life I'm a very quiet, private person, so the creative process helps me express a part of my personality that I might not show otherwise; and B) I live in Seattle, where the sky is almost always gray and the light almost always dim, so the more color, the better the psyche!

Welcome to my Etsy vintage shop!

When I was 12 years old, back in the early 1980s, I had a store in my garage where I sold handmade stickers and paper items, and my customers were my sister and kids from the neighborhood. With my Etsy shop, I am going back to my roots, after years of schooling and work as a graphic designer.
