I have been making things out of things since I was a little girl. I really started to have fun with “repurposing” when I was in my teens. We didn’t call it that back then. My girlfriends and I spent our weekends shopping in thrift stores for vintage dresses and plaid blazers to wear with our Chuck Taylor’s. My Nana called it junk shopping and was appalled that I wore used clothes in public. I used to love to update an old dress from the 60’s or 70’s.
It was that dress that catapulted me into making other things like curtains out of silk scarves and purses out of denim skirts. So here I am, some 20 years later, with some new things I made out of other things.
Every wallet, clutch and purse has a story. The fabrics and accessories that make it what it is today have been reincarnated. They have a new life but they come to you with history. Each creation will include it’s own tale. I can’t promise you the story is true; it’s just my interpretation of the life it might have led.
I also have a decent collection of vintage items that I plan to sell on this site. Everything from shoes to kitchenware. So stay posted and thank you for stopping by.
