Saltwater runs through my veins...

Hi! Welcome to ..."Saltwater Mercantile."

My name is Michele and I have a love for all things handmade. To me, any item is more special when someone has put their ideas, designs, time and love into creating it.

After retiring from the handmade soap business and moving to the fabulous Atlantic coast area of Myrtle Beach, I found myself still making various handcrafted items. Some of my friends and neighbors encouraged me to open an Etsy shop again so I could offer my handmade goods to here I am!

This little shop is my way of sharing my love of handmade crafts with all of you!

I look forward to adding various handmade goods and artisan items as time goes on. Check back often to see what whimsy I have created!

Because of the individual handcrafted nature of my items, some of them will be offered in extremely limited (or one of a kind) quantities. Just convo me for more info if you have questions.

Thanks for supporting my small business! See you again soon! I am headed off to spend another looooong, grueling day at the beach...hunting for beach treasures! 😉

Beach life is the best life!

Additional policies and FAQs
All of my products are handmade individually or in small batches, therefore there may be a slight variation in color, texture, etc. from item to item. This is completely normal and should not be considered a defect. In addition, there may be slight imperfections that do not affect the value or use of these items. These minor imperfections are inherent in all handmade items, and should not be considered flaws. Rest assured that I personally create every one of my products by hand in order to achieve the highest level of quality I can produce for you.
