Hillside Home Arts
Jane’s love for shopping at yard sales and local thrift stores has been an inspiration for her Etsy shop. She is always looking for things from the 50s, 60s, and 70s that remind her of her childhood decades. When she started bringing too many things home she decided to share her findings with the world. The items then evolved to her Etsy Shop. Most of the items that she purchases have to be cleaned, repaired, repainted or repurposed. She has learned a lot with this hobby, and really enjoys keeping busy and feeling productive.

I am absolutely excited and ready to share my new Flowing Creekside Memories Collection with everyone. I plan to add some personalization to my items this year and offer custom designed stamped jewelry . I love to reuse and repurposed things and I also love to use nature made products like rocks, gems, and pinecones. If you would like to check out my shop I would love for you too. http://etsy.me/2fT3bc0
