Creating new treasures from old

I can't bear to throw away a good book, magazine, stamps, comic, postcards, letters - anything really! Just because it's a little damaged or out of date doesn't mean it doesn't still have value, so I love to take parts which can be reused and turn them into unique pieces which keep part of the original influence.

I opened this shop to share these unique treasures and finds with other crafty people. Whether you enjoy scrapbooking, card making, collage, altered art or other crafty pursuits I hope you find something you can create you own new treasures with.

All pieces I cut up are unwanted, damaged, outdated or otherwise not useable anymore; if they weren't used for craft they'd get thrown away. I don't like to take useful items to pieces so you know that your crafting is helping the planet too.

I have two other shops here on Etsy too, if you're interested in looking:

    I've always loved collecting old books, stamps, postcards, magazines... well everything really. It seems such a shame to throw them away when they've gotten torn, drawn on or are just out of date so I've always liked to rescue them.
