HOLIDAY SHIPPING (mid-October thru December 24, 2015)
During the busy holiday season, orders usually take the maximum time estimated before shipping. Always check SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT (right here!!) for shipping time updates, which are updated weekly if needed. If you need an item by a certain date, please contact me directly! ♥︎

NOVEMBER 20-25 The Mermaid Studio is getting crazy busy for the holidays!- but orders are still running on time, although usually the maximum time estimated.

Come wander through my collection of handmade vintage-inspired treasures. All my items are made with loving care, one at a time, and no two are exactly the same!

Each book is my original design and is lovingly assembled by ME! I handcut my own acid-free archival boards and then cover them with beautiful papers that I collect from my travels around the world. My first love is vintage and vintage-look papers. Each book is delicately and lovingly cut, sewn and bound by hand. Please allow 5-7 BUSINESS DAYS for these books to be made and shipped.
✩✩✩Antiqued Journals: Each page of the Antiqued Journals are delicately treated and dried to give them a lovely vintage look. There are ragged edges, light distressing, and other details added that make it look like it's been sitting in the corner of the Antique Book Store for centuries! Made with the highest quality bookmaking materials, they are works of art in themselves! Each book has a theme with a variety of vintage illustrations, quotes, folklore and facts throughout their pages. See listing of each book for specific details. Almost any book in my shop can be "antiqued".

The wonderful and whimsical APOTHECARY, where you never know what you will find in a bottle!! All of Mermaid's Magical Bottles are filled with a variety of fun and beautiful materials, often things from my own garden, AND, of course, your imagination! I have "retired" several bottles so if you don't see one you really wanted, please send me an email and I may be able to make one for you if I still have the materials.
RETIRED: Vampire Bites, Butterfly Kisses, Fairy Whispers, Fairy Dust.
SEASONAL: Ice Princess Tears, Snow Queen Snow, Angel Wings

✩✩Did you know all the sea shells and sea glass in my bottles have been collected by ME! - and never purchased in a shop! See where my seashells and glass have come from by taking a world tour by peeking at my blog:

These mysterious, unique cards have mystical images on one side and antiqued paper fortunes on the other side. Cards are on sturdy matte board and cut by hand. There are several themes to choose from and new ones coming all the time! A fun and unique idea for your next party or special event.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE NOTE THAT THE POCKET TAROT CARDS LISTED IN MY SHOP ARE A MINI DECK OF THE 22 MAJOR ARCANA ONLY! I have listed photos for perspective as well as given dimensions in the listing description. PLEASE do not purchase these if you are looking for a regular size deck. This is a mini-deck of antiqued tarot cards-Major Arcana only. PLEASE READ LISTING CAREFULLY BEFORE PURCHASING!
