As a 60-something year old gal who has been crafting most all of her life, I’ve found joy in doing craft & art festivals as well as my antique & craft booths!! I’ve had an antique booth somewhere for the last 30 or so years, owned my own shop for a while… and started doing shows in 2006. My mother asked me, not long after we started doing shows “If you had a better job, do you think ya’ll could stop doing shows?”– which I had to laugh, as I’ve met the nicest people and count many of them as my friends as I look forward to seeing them at shows! It is like mini family reunions where you catch up once or twice a year! I can’t imagine NOT doing them, despite all the hard work that they entail!
At RandomStuff, that is EXACTLY what you’ll find– a lot of Random STUFF!! My craft booth employs found items that are made into new, functional items, such as lights, clocks, jewelry and accessories to name a few. My store booths have a mixture of those handcrafted items, as well as fun vintage & antique pieces!
I LOVE doing custom orders for people! My customer base is made up of a LOT of Disney, Peanuts and Pop Culture fans for whom I’ve made plenty of things for them or to be given for that hard to buy for person. Its pretty much guaranteed that a handcrafted gift from RandomStuff is NOT going to be found ANYWHERE else! Turnaround times for custom orders may be longer than the 3-5 days- as it depends on what’s wanted! I have a plethora of vintage children’s books and other ephemera… but I don’t always have ‘it all’! It does excite me to start searching for people’s wants and interests! I learn SO much from my customers! While I don’t speak Geek fluently, I gave birth to a couple who do– so don’t ever be afraid to ask! haha!
