Over the past few months I’ve developed a desire to reuse and repurpose clothing and various household items, rather than throw them in the trash or recycling or donate clothing to a place that will most likely mark up the price, making it difficult for the less fortunate to afford anyway. So, I busted out my sewing machine and began fashioning original fashions, making things like skirts out of mens’ shirts and hats out of sweaters. It’s been relieving to know that I’m finding a new use for things most people would probably throw away.
I am currently selling my creations on Etsy and am in the process of filling out applications to set up a GOOT table at farmer’s markets around the capital region. Please visit my site to check out and purchase my goods. I’ll be sharing updates on this blog with new and exciting creations!
