Coming soon to My Etsy Shop

Fair warning: extraordinarily pic-heavy post

The items I have shown here will be included in a shop update on Friday; vintage items, postcards, earrings, my handmade ceramic items, etc. Prices listed here are often at a discount from what I would list them for in the shop and purchasing from me as a reader prior to placement in the shop allows you to get these things free of shipping charges (for U.S. delivery that is. I may have to ask a small sum if you wish for international delivery depending upon the item).  Larger images are available upon request. If you are interested in purchasing an item, please email me and we will work out payment through PayPal.
