I love to make simple necklaces that can be for a guy or a gal....but I do try to get the guys to wear necklaces. Some of the necklaces are in my HOT DoGGER STuff etsy store. I also like to find interesting tie clasp...it's just another thing to find and buy!

So my partner and I wanted to move the counter but the phone jacks don't work. Either way I made so changes. We are stocked full of wonderful sweaters, coats, dress and blouses...OH man so much. We also have lots of jewelry that would make great gifts.
Oh and thanks to The Sacramento News & Review for a little blurb about our store.

Same location different name.....I am partners with Nicole of Flaming Hag. She has such a great sense of finding the most amazing vintage finds. She also creates upcycled charm style jewelry and make these cute reconstructed lace/doily appliqued clothing. You can find her clothes at Needles and Pins and of course our store!
We are very happy with the transition. We look forward to keep the Atelier aesthetic alive.

I searched and thought man I really like clog heels. I found some on ebay....kind of out of my price range,of course ETSY. Either not my size or way to much money. Vintage of course! ALAS the search was over, came to work at Atelier and they were up on our self...I thought please let them fit.....YES! I just have to get pads on the heels. I will be wearing these all the time!

I am part owner of a vintage and handmade store called ATELIER. I have posted stuff up before about the store but now I am really part of the store! The owners are Melissa and Amy(they are sisters), Nicole of Flaming Hag Folkwear, and myself.
So far the changes and energy have been very postive. The store looks great, I have been moving things around like crazy. We all create handmade, upcycled items.
We plan to have a GUNNE SAX fashion show soon.

The main reason I opened this store, cause I love NICK KNACKS. I started thrifting and going to antique stores when I 16. I think I have a good eye for good quality items and some cute kitchy items as well, i.e OWLS & UNICORNS.
Right now I have a thing for strawberries, unicorns, tins and owls. The store's name stems from my PORKCHOP RULES line, you know PORKCHOPs, HOT DOGS.
I am trying to list new items everyday, I have more to come.

So if I did collect OWLs these would be part of my collection. I try to find different owl stuff that I would want. I have made some jewelry using vintage and new charms "UPCYCLED". I have even made a baby design on some little tshirts. I spraypainted some figurines, I thought at first no one would buy them. They sold quick and cheap....in the end I didn't make that much money cause the shipping was expensive. Either way, OWLs are timeless. Check out my etsy store hotdoggerstuff
