Welcome To Hastypearl. A Shop and Blog where You and I can explore Vintage Parts and Heirloom Art, Together.
I’m Laura, aka Hastypearl !
I’m so happy that you found my shop!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you have, that I may not have addressed below in my shop policies. I’d love to Chat 🙂 You can find Contact on the top bar of my front page.
Hastypearl’s Mixed Media Art begins long before I ever get into my studio. My husband and I love visiting estate sales where we always seem to find Vintage Treasures. It surprises me what people will sell. Sometimes, I feel elated to see a papers, receipts, a feather collection, a book, or photos of a life gone by. It’s like they are saying…pick me…I have a Story to Tell!
I can’t wait to get them home and sorted to see what happens next. I’ve always been captivated by the history and the life of an object. Listening hard, every item works its way into the Art. I do my best to start a New story and then turn it over to You, to finish it…
If you are purchasing Gift Items, be sure to let me know. It’s important that you give me the Recipients Shipping address, so that we can get the item to them as fast as possible and I’ll be certain to include a gift card. I Love to be in on a good surprise!
Some of my greatest sales have been from customers who Asked me if I could create them something special and custom; don’t be shy, I’m happy to create something just for You! All you have to do is let me know, or send me your memento and I’m SURE that we can come up with something. Lets Adventure, Together !
My wish for You, is that you find something that sparks a special memory in Your life or for Someone very special to You.
