About Vintage Street Market
"I have always been a crafter, but have found my true calling in working with vintage materials-there's nothing quite like it. I enjoy the challenge of creating something new from something old. The textures add such depth to projects and evoke strong memories of a bygone time. Each ribbon, button, or scrap of paper is, in essence, a miniature time capsule. Remembering and sharing these special periods of time is so important and including them in a creative way, is truly a treasure."
"I am thrilled to share vintage-inspiration, and techniques, through Vintage Street Market. I hope that everyone who enjoys going to antique stores, flea markets and tag sales will try their hand at creating something new from these found materials, and craft their own vintage treasures!"
