the beauty of necessity
as a single mum with autistic twins, working outside the home is not easy.
when they are home so am i.
money is always tight.
being able to sell on etsy has been the only way of making ends meet many a time.
so thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping keep our family afloat!
we work as a family at renaissance faires, sca events, steampunk gatherings and anime cons.
costuming is so cool!
so is vintage.
our vintage shop is http://alchemy2.etsy.com.
even more patterns & trim as well as clothing & jewelry.
look for us on facebook too.
Alchemy2 is our name & our icon is a very large cat with a remote control!
