Oh, hi there. Shop Girl is happy you stopped by!
Here at the shop, we use all upcycled material to fashion our fabulous menagerie* of urban and otherwise awkward or misunderstood animals. Deer, rats, squirrels, wild turkeys, chickens and pigeons are just some of the critters that gather round the table.
Unwanted knits, threads and yarn bits, upholstery material, needlepoint and fun surprises from local art reuse centers*.
Hand-stitched with love, each animal has a personality that can be expressed with their poseable bodies.
