Our Fishtory

When we opened our bricks and mortar store on beautiful Cape Cod, I had been a graphic designer for over 20 years, but I wanted to move beyond the computer. We are recyclists by nature, so that's where we began. Picking up wood destined for the dumpster or finding furniture beyond repair, we were inspired and challenged to making something beautiful.
Our surroundings spoke to us and so did our customers! They wanted pieces that reflected their beach life—colorful, relaxed, and fun. Fish, whales, lobsters, and rustic signs began emerging from piles of collected wood. It was and is exhilarating finding something discarded and turning it into something beautiful.
We love the way the paint catches on the old wood and pools around the knots, the nail holes, and the rough edges, not covering the flaws, but enhancing them.
As we work, each one of us, pulls in a slightly different direction, experimenting with design, shape, and color. We are always trying to come up with a new design or process, and in turn, make happy customers.
Etsy has been a fabulous extension to our bricks and mortar store. It gets us to people beyond our shore. It gives us a rich community of fellow artists. And it makes us work even harder to design something eye-catching.
Thank you for visiting! Stop back soon to see what's new!!

  • Cynthia Nolan

    Owner, Designer

    I've been a graphic designer in the UK and US for 25 years, but I've always loved making things by hand, and recycling is in my blood. I love the challenge of using what I have to create something unique and beautiful.

  • Mike DiNatale

    Designer, Creator

    Mike finds and hauls home every piece of reclaimed wood. Using very simple tools he finds the whales, fish, and other creatures that hide within it. His infectious energy and crazy imagination keeps our store fresh and exciting.

  • Mel Nolan

    Designer, Creator

    Mel worked for 30 years as a freelance editor hiding her creative side until her bossy younger sister forced her to help out at Sodium. She now brings her unique style and vision to every piece she makes.
