Everything Old is New Again

I have loved and collected vintage since I was a child. I always dreamed that one day I would own my own business. I also had another dream; to move to Maui. After three years of saving up cash, I made the move, and was even able to get a job transfer with the company I worked for at the time. I spent about a year on Maui and it was magical and life changing. I started my Etsy shop while living there and that is how my shop got its name.

So, what is it like to really own a shop? Its starts with merchandise. I am constantly hunting for new inventory for my shop. I am lucky enough to live in a very culturally diverse area that offers over 15 different thrift stores within a 45 minute drive. That is how I get such a unique collection of items in my shop. It can take me hours to go through a thrift store; looking at everything, inspecting it for flaws, imagining how I will photograph it and style it, etc. The new goodies then travel home with me where they are washed and tended to. After that, photos are taken at my home on a day with good light. These are edited to the perfect 5 pics that Etsy allows. Then comes the other fun part: the research. What company made this? How old is it? Or sometimes, what is it? Then I measure, write the description, and list the new item. Easy, right? Well, it can be sometimes. But it does take work and time. And passion. You need to have a real love for older things and real dedication to your shop. I think of each vintage item I sell as a little time capsule from the past.

My jewelry is a whole other story. I LOVE jewelry and accessories. I think they make your outfit and convey your style. I will create an entire ensemble around a necklace. The jewelry I make is also often created from things I find while thrifting. In addition to that, I get beads and stones from gem shows and bead suppliers. I often find ugly jewelry while thrifting, but then I think about how I can tear it apart and make so many other beautiful things from that one piece. Because of this, my jewelry is very one of a kind.

My personal style and tastes are quite varied; from Mexican folk art to vintage 1960s surf culture to Japanese textiles to mod fashion to bohemian lifestyles. You will find all of these things when you wander through my shop. I hope you enjoy your visit through my wonderous and slightly wacky world.

Welcome to my wacky little world!! I grew up in Baltimore, MD, moved to the metro DC area, and even lived on Maui for a spell. I love jewelry, clothes, art, junk, tiki, kokeshi, southwest design, mid century modern, various tribal and ethnic arts, and pretty much any kind of random old junk. You see examples of all of that in my shop.

As a thrifter, I have been collecting odds and ends and vintage clothes for years. Usually, I sell on ebay or to consignment shops. That was before Etsy came into my life. Now, I am passing my curious finds on to you through here.
