The best ideas are the unexpected ones!
I had no plans to open another shop on Etsy. I already have one shop with handcrafted jewelry and gifts and one shop with vintage costume jewelry and more.
However, some day I realized that I had accumulated lots of vintage craft supplies and would probably never have the time to use them all in my projects. It would have been a shame to keep them tucked away, and so I decided to offer them to others.
I am glad I did! I have so much fun with this shop and a lot of my customers are happy that they could find something at Yester Finds, which they had been looking for in vain for quite some time.
So please look around in my shop to rediscover craft ideas that you were enjoying many years ago or combine vintage supplies with contemporary ones to create something truly unique!
Around the web

Frequently asked questions
What if I buy multiple items?
The Etsy checkout will calculate the shipping charges for you. After you placed the order and I packed it I will adjust the shipping costs and refund any overpaid shipping charges if they are at least $ 1.
Do vintage craft supplies come in their original packaging?
A lot of the vintage craft items in my store are found in their original packaging. However, due to age and storing, the packaging is in most cases stained, creased or darkened. It would be difficult to take pictures of an item while it is still in the package.
It would also be difficult to tell if an item has flaws. Therefore I remove the packaging, but will include it – or parts of it – if it contains instructions or other important information.
Will the colors of the item be exactly like in the image?
The actual colors may vary slightly due to computer monitor and/or device differences. Subtle variations in color and surface texture may not be fully revealed.
Is all the fabric in your shop vintage?
I buy the fabric at estate sales or similar events and do not always know the origin of the fabric. If I am certain that the fabric is vintage I will list it as vintage fabric. If I am uncertain, I will not.
What does "vintage" mean?
The items in my shop are vintage. By Etsy standards everything that is at least 20 years old is considered vintage. Vintage also means that the item is pre-owned and was either used or stored. Used items will show - more or less - signs of wear from use. Items that were not used will show signs of wear from storing. In both cases the items will show signs of wear from aging. I always do my best to detect any flaws and mention them in the description or capture them in one of the pictures if possible. Therefore please also look at the pictures to determine the condition of an item. In any case, a vintage item can never be as flawless as something that was produced recently. But isn't this what makes up the charm of vintage goods?
