Meet the Vendor: Mugwumps
Who are you and what do you do?
I’m a recovering elementary school teacher turned entrepreneur. Just kidding – I still substitute teach the little ones and really enjoy it, but creating accessories is now my full time job. I love kids’ literature so I use a lot of it in my creations. I make handbags, wallets, and other accessories from reclaimed materials. I have accessories for men, women, & kids from books, gameboards, album covers, and maps!
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
Love Vintage? Mugwump has new tote bags created from Vintage Sheet Music.
What was your first memory of making something?
Well, being a crafty kid and all I once tried to make a pair of ‘clogs’ out of cardboard milk cartons. (shuffle, shuffle, shuffle)
What do you love most about craft show vending?
I love seeing familiar customers that have visited UCU as many times as I have!
What do your customers love most about your product(s)?
The nostalgia! There are great memories and stories to be shared as folks look through all the products.
