I will post here and on communities when I will be selling at places or events.  Right now it looks like I will be selling at a two house yard sale on West Center St. on Sat and Sun June 28th and 29th.  So I will be selling some regular garage sale stuff as well as my handmade stuff.

After that my next scheduled appearance is hopefully going to be the Rosendale Street Fest on Sat and Sun July 19th and 20th.  I just sent the checks and application so hopefully I will hear back on that soon.

More details to come on both of those events soon.

I will also make sure to update of I post new items on etsy..com

much love
After years of making things and saying I was going to sell them, I have finally done it.

I have loved working with beads ( i really like shiny things) since my friend got me into it in 7th grade.

Later in life after being an environmentalist I have become obsessed with the idea or reusing materials, and reducing waste and never throwing away anything that can be reused.

I also really really love to decorate things. So in as many creative ways as I can I will be combining both of these obsessions by decorating reusable things.

Not everything I make is made from reusable materials, right now only the candle holders and the books are mostly made from reusable materials.

Some of the bags are made from old clothing, some of the beads are from old jewelry discovered at the salvation army or garage sales that were terribly hideous however had some nice beads that could be used. some of the materials I have used in the bags and beads are items that others were going to discard, beads or jewelry, clothing or fabric that was going to be thrown out and wasted instead of made into something great.

My friends are all pretty well trained now to consult me before throwing anything away that I might possible make into something or decorate with. Tissue paper from gift bags, paper gift or grocery bags, small glass jars etc.  

So some parts of some of the other items are reused but mostly the beads and yarn and cloth are still in their virgin materials states. Oh well you can't win them all.

I will continue my search for things that can be decorated, reused, turned into new things.

I have been toying with the idea or making beads to be mixed with the glass beads out of reused items or materials. We will see what I can come up with.

This is come at no additional shipping and handling cost. I have right now limited amounts of keychains (they were from a make you own key chain kit that someone was going to throw away! Gasp!) So feel free to request a keychain (while they last) or a patch.
