Re: Do you care about buying hand made?

Yes!..even thrift is still re purposing! As long as we just keep what we have (resource-wise) than these big companies can go suck a bowl!.lol

I hate companies like Guess, personally...they only speak to women who club and charge loads of money for it. Ewwww

Re: Rhinestone skull sweater clip

Oh my!...They were used the in the 1950's and usually to keep your cardigan over your shoulders, but these days you can wear one one your denim pocket (which I do), on your suspenders, in your hair, on your purse, anywhere really! That's the real beauty of them!

Thanks for taking an interest! <3
