I started Recovered Treasures (now Re-covered Treasures) in 2002 as a way to sell items on E-Bay. Originally, my goal was to re-purpose and re-use items to give them a new life and a new home. Most of my items were things I already had - and I either just sold them as-is, or a few I did make into new/different things and then sell.
Now that my daughter is a bit older, I'm more strongly motivated to do more with my business and my artwork. My original goals still stand - to re-purpose and re-use items giving them new lives and hopefully new homes.
I am currently selling my products through Etsy at my Etsy Store: RecoveredTreasures4U where I am having a lot of fun creating different items to sell. Currently, I have a line of postcards, greeting cards, Button Jewelry and Accessories, and World Globe Lampshades and Bowls available. I also have a line of personalized products to sell as well (including rustic signs, "We've Moved" postcards, and a variety of seeded paper cards and products).
I am excited about my new ventures! My dream is to be able to provide enough extra money for my family that I could work on this business full-time. I also dream of employing other stay-at-home moms - I'd love to be able to help them earn some money while still being able to stay at home with their kids. I know I have a long ways to go - but I've taken the first baby steps and I can't wait to see where I end up!
