Tell us a little about yourself and what you sell.
I spend my days at home with my young daughter who attends a virtual charter school. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we will soon celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We live on a small acreage, where we garden, have a few critters and try to live a simpler, greener, but still connected lifestyle. I spend as much time at yard sales, thrift stores and flea markets as I can searching for treasures that I can use, repurpose and/or sell in my Etsy shop.

I decided to work with upcycled/repurposed/vintage items because I enjoy vintage items and the history behind them. I like to repurpose items when I can and it gives me an outlet for my creative streak. The massive consumerism in society in this day and age bothers me and I want to reduce my contribution to that as much as I can.

My favorite thing about running my etsy shop is the people I have met, all of the fantastic things available on etsy, and when someone is excited by a purchase from me whether it's a vintage item or something I have repurposed, that makes me feel good.

I get inspired by the items I come across, and my desire to preserve vintage items and their history. Even if it means revamping those items into something else. We are in the process of building a new workshop here at our home, so some of my projects are on hold for a little bit, until the new space is ready and then the possibilities will be endless.
