Spotlight on OldSkoolProductions

I love this shop!  It's like she's been rummaging in my mom's attic and pulling out the best stuff!  She's also in the process of opening a supplies shop...details to come soon!

What sorts of things do you offer in your shop? A wide variety of vintage and antique items, but I specialize in 80's pop culture like video games, toys, and more.

How did you first start selling on Etsy? How long have you been selling? Do you sell anywhere else? For as long as I can remember I've been selling stuff on Ebay. When I came across Etsy less than a year ago, I knew I had to open shop. I still sell on Ebay and flea markets from time to time but I love Etsy and I devote most of my time to making my shop the best that it can be.

What are your favorite materials to work with? Anything vintage!

What got you interested in your craft? I love old stuff! I like to learn the story behind items, and I think its awesome when you can take something someone once cherished and give it a new life.

Are there other creative projects you are involved in outside of your work in your Etsy shop?  I'm always doing something. Right now I am working on making my backyard the Oasis I always wanted.

Besides art/crafty stuff, what else do you like doing in your free time? I enjoy spending time with my lovely girlfriend, and our four legged babies. I also love being outdoors, at the beach, playing games, watching movies, or just chillin with some tunes.

Does your queer identity come into play in your work? I think my queer identity makes me who I am. I find that being a butch, helps me relate to a broad spectrum of people, and the items I sell appeal to men and women alike.

Is there any advice you have for our readers? If you are passionate about something, then go for it. Never let anyone or anything stand in the way of your dreams.
