Oldies But Definitely Goodies - Unique Artisan Handmade


Whenever someone mentions “Oldies But Goodies,” most people think of old songs, vintage cars, antique furniture or, possibly, themselves (after - ahem - a certain age).  “Oldies But Goodies” can also refer to items in handmade shops that have been around for longer than we would like.  Whenever something is created and then listed in our shops, we always think it will sell right away.  But, for whatever reason, the beauty sits there . . . and sits there . . . and sits there some more. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that particular item - not at all!  It just hasn’t found that forever person to give it a forever home.


I asked artisan friends to share two items from their shops that they considered “oldies but goodies.”  Many of the items are one of a kind creations and would make a perfect gift for a birthday, anniversary, Christmas, or just because . . . I hope something catches your eye and that you visit the shops of the artists below.

Many Thanks for These Oldies

Lots of beautiful works of jewelry to choose from; hard to believe they are still in stock, but maybe all of these extra boosts will get them to the perfect home. Thank you for including my blue flower necklace and red rose bracelet. Have shared and pinned around the world! Many treats to our fav desert dog from silly time-out Harry who just dismantled some of my latest creations when I turned my back on him for 15 minutes. Cheers to all!
