Last updated on May 10, 2022
I'm an Apparel Industry Professional by day and etsy hobbyist/adventurer by night. I love creating all sorts of things but I live in a very small house. And I'm fickle so I'm constantly moving on to the next new thing but I don't have a lot of storage space so it's "in with the new and out with the old"...

I consider myself an environmentalist so I refuse to throw perfectly good supplies I don't use away. I take great care in my things, I've traveled to many countries where people have so little so I appreciate the things I do have. Everything I sell is in excellent condition, I wouldn't sell anything that I wouldn't buy myself!

I'm not out to make tons of money here, I'm just trying to find a good home for some of my collections. I provide shipping options that are reasonable. Many of my packing methods are from repurposed items that would have otherwise been thrown away. I wrap things carefully and ship promptly because I buy many things online myself and know waiting is painful and paying high shipping costs is even more painful!

Many of my items are vintage or preloved. I do my best to describe the item's character but feel free to ask for additional close up photos.

I will ship anywhere, just ask for a quote!

If you ever have a question about anything, feel free to contact me. I'll be happy to hear from you.
