Vintage by Crystal

I had so much fun visiting Crystal's shop, her pieces are fun, unique and whimsical!  
Take a peek in her shop, where you'll find fanciful handmade creations 
inspired by ornaments and objects from the past. 

In the Artist's own Words:
I was born and raised in Saratoga Springs, NY. My father is a hardworking dairy farmer and my mother is a talented artist. My diverse childhood environment proved to be the perfect conditions for a budding artist. Also, my parents always lived modestly which meant scoping out local garage sales from time to time. That was all it took for me to be hooked on all things old and whimsical. Treasure hunting and collecting is now my greatest passion aside from creating "old" and whimsical treasures.

I live in upstate New York with my wonderful husband Ben, kitties Paige and Sophie, three birds and fish. I work full time as a crafter out of the studio on the third floor of my historical home and am pleased to come up with a multitude of new vintage inspired designs each holiday and everyday for you and your loved ones to enjoy.

Crystal specializes in spun cotton, a century old technique used for making holiday ornaments and figures in old world Germany.  She uses many vintage materials and other 100 year old techniques when creating her quirky characters.  Each piece made is either one of a kind or part of an open edition, depending on what materials are available, although each item is unique, being handmade by Crystal.
