DsTrove.etsy.com My other etsy shop is my Trove of Vintage Collectibles...
I think we can incorporate purpose and function within our limited space and still reflect the things we love with personality and a lot of creativity. Everything in my shop is One-of-a-Kind, reflecting elegance in the practical things in life.

In 2007, Practical Elegance came into being. I am not always satisfied with trends, and duplicating what everyone else is doing. Whether handmade accessories or Vintage Finds; Silverplate, Brass, Porcelain, Figurines being 'Unique' vs. being 'Normal' should be embraced, bringing out your own personal style,

Practical Elegance pincushions & hat stands with the hands-on memories you've put into it, are intended to be an 'heirloom quality' reflection of your personality, passing them down to the next generation crafter in your family.

Customer Feedback says it all: This hat stand is a stunning piece of art! I hate to even put a hat on it! Thank you so much. It is beautiful!

The same creative quality is applied to all of my handmade accessories.

I have 2 etsy shops:
practicalelegance.etsy.com
DsTrove.etsy.com

If you are interested in other items in either of my two etsy shops, DsTrove.etsy.com and/or practicalelegance.etsy.com I will combine shipping and hopefully save on combined orders. Please convo me for combined shipping costs

Thank you

This is a nice item and was shipped promptly, with excess shipping cost refunded - but it is one size fits all, and that size is HUGE. I have a large head but it still covers my face by falling forward. Nicely designed and made, though!

About

Practical and Elegance combined

Practical Elegance started 5 years ago, as a definition for my loving the practical and elegant things in life, realizing that the two are equally important to me. I don't like to dust pretty and useless possessions; everything has to fit into a why, how, and what-for category. Keeps life creative, and reasonably relevant. I get bored with the elegant, and practicality is a necessity. Pincushions were my first effort at giving a new life and purpose to old shelved treasures, Some have evolved into hatstands. Kids esp. are fascinated by them. Magnetic wearable flowers can be worn as a brooch; in your hair; on bags and totes. They originated from a thought that I wanted something to dress up a nice old leather coat, without damage to the leather.

A few years after Practicalelegance, I opened a second etsy shop to seperate the handmade from the Vintage finds at DsTrove.etsy.com;
