About

Tale of a Wandering Mermaid...

I grew up on the beach in Malibu and began traveling to Europe at a young age. Although my heart belongs to the sea and life at the beach, I loved the history and old-world feeling of Paris, London and Athens compared to my sunshine filled beach life at home and I would find myself searching through antique stores and vintage shops while on my travels. Dusty leather bound books, vintage handbags, luggage, and old apothecary bottles were my favorite things to collect. After attending colleges in California, Hawaii and England I graduated with a degree in illustration and I planned to become a children's book illustrator, but then I took a course on bookmaking and letterpress at Otis College of Design in Los Angeles and I began making my own books. As my handmade book collection grew I decided I really wanted to recreate more of the beautiful antique books and other things I remember finding in the little shops in Europe and thus WANDERING MERMAID was born. I like to think of my ETSY shop as the mysterious little vintage shop you find down a hidden alleyway . You never know what you will find ❤

I am a stay at home artist and mum to my beautiful twins, dividing the year living in both California and England. I have been an artist and craftsperson my whole life and trained as an illustrator in undergraduate and graduate college both in America and England. I worked many years in the museum world and have now found peace and harmony in my home studio, creating and working with my hands- and imagination!

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
Paypal is my preferred method of payment. Payment, of course, must be made in the full amount before any items are prepared and shipped.
Shipping
I try to ship Fortune Teller cards within 5 business days of purchase unless otherwise stated in the listing and ship handmade books within 7-10 business days. Multi-item orders take longer and shipping times vary. I ship via USPS First Class Mail for most single items. I will ship Priority or Overnight upon request and agreed shipping price quote. Insurance is not included in any of the shipping costs, it is an option. If you are ordering glass items (bottles, framed art, etc.) and would like to insure your package, please send me a message and I will bill you separately. Insurance is usually very inexpensive, around $4.00 for up to $200.00 coverage for domestic shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me and I will make every effort to rectify the problem. I value my work and reputation and want every customer to be completely happy with their item(s) and comfortable to purchase from my shop again.
