My Aunt Debbie

Energy & Sustainability

I’m not sure how I even came across the My Aunt Debbie shop, but it’s a load of fun–colorful, clever, and kitschy. Her offerings run the gamut from jewelry to clothing to housewares, with all of it made from repurposed and thrifted materials combined in new ways. Some of my favorite items in her shop include the Granny Chic Crochet Belt (pictured above), created from rescued thrifted crochet squares and vintage buttons…
The Vintage Thimble Necklace, fashioned from vintage thimbles (duh) and shiny black snaps…
And the Tennis Bug Coffee Cozy, stitched from a thrifted, felted sweater and a vintage patch.
