pilgrim cottage collectibles

I live in a small country town in northeast Tasmania which doesn't even appear on the etsy geolocator, so I'm listed under Launceston, the nearest city.

My husband is a wonderful support and a silent partner in the business, as well as having done all the renovations to the building in his spare time.

We are also agents for kit sheds and homes - you need to diversify when you live in the country!

IMPORTANT - as I have a 'real' as well as a 'virtual' gallery/shop, some items sell on site. Those that sale offline are moved into the section of that title. Please do not purchase, as they have already been sold.

Please note that I use 90% upcycled packing materials, thus helping our environment by reducing waste and landfill.

    I am a collector, artist, teacher and business operator, not necessarily in that order. My business is run from a gallery and studio where I display and sell my textile art, host exhibitions, run/organise workshops, and (of course) sell collectibles.

Shop policies

Last updated on January 28, 2013
I love collecting, and the bonus is that through Pilgrim Cottage Collectibles I can now encourage everyone else to collect too.

All the items I sell here are things I love. I couldn't ask you to love them if I didn't feel that way myself!

Please also see my favourites to see what else I like, and visit the wonderful etsy shops that offer them.

Additional policies and FAQs

I will make every effort to present each listing as realistically and honestly as I can in its description and photographs.

I will also undertake to package each item with great care to prevent any damage in transit.

Please note that online listings will be deactivated if they sell outside of this etsy store, as I also sell on site through my studio/gallery retail business.
