Her art is a mixture of vintage, reclaimed, metalwork, fibers, and upcycleness all rolled into one. Lindsay Rae started out majoring in photography before finding herself in applied design at San Diego State. After college the need to create hit her and she started making jewelry.
Then she found Steampunk….
The fun of reusing vintage and working with many new techniques led to creating hat pins, hair sticks, and the curious collection of creatures she calls “Bugs”. Today you can find her work at conventions, vintage shows and local art shows.
Handmade Steampunk, Victorian, and Wonderland items; including clothes, jewelry, journals, hair and hat accessories.
Kyla uses vintage pieces, feathers, and old jewelry parts to create her artwork. She does custom work, troupe pieces, and special occasion pieces.
We provide to the general public several entirely non-fatal experiences, as well as Escape Rooms: Rooms full of puzzles that you and your friends are locked into and must find the key to and escape from before time runs out. Solve the mystery and get out before it’s too late, else-wise you may just be locked inside forever.*

They also have available for purchase an assortment of genuine mid-19th century photo cases of various size and design.

” Besides sewing and creating original items, I love to rescue previously owned garments and upcycle them into one-of-a-kind unique items, giving them new life and purpose with a Steampunk aesthetic. I clean and examine each garment and handmake all upcycled modifications. The upcycling I do may include altering a garment, adding trims, embellishments, new buttons, lacing, overdying, etc. See what’s new in my Etsy shop.”

Perpetual Motion Creations
With life-long theatrical & artistic experience in just about every possible related medium, Paula began designing jewelry made from found, upcycled, or donated materials about five years ago.
Paula shares her tiny studio with her Super-Genius hubby, Andy (Cameron Theatrical Designs), and their two-rescued canine-kids, Stella & Gonzo.
Specializing in strange or unusual requests, Paula thrives on challenges, and considers herself a true rebel & maverick crafter.
Paula’s love for all things Halloween & Upcycling seemed to go so well with her love of the combined romantic Victorian with Punk Rock leather & spikes. Once called “weird” for her unorthodox pairing, years later Paula came to find out that her favorite style actually had a name – “Steampunk”.
So – whatever you’re able to dream up, Perpetual Motion Creations (sometimes partnered with Cameron Theatrical Designs) will be able to make those dreams a reality!

Haunted Memories Changing Portraits
Inspired by the spooky changing paintings in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion attraction, artist Edward Allen took the concept one step further by creating his own spooky changing portraits based on real antique photographs. Mr. Allen’s macabre artwork is photo-realistic and nearly all of his characters feature multi-stage transitions, which makes them extra spine-chillling. If you’re looking for the best spooky changing portraits on the market, you’ve found them at “Haunted Memories!”
From an early age, S.B.K. Burns recited Shakespearean sonnets and would sneakily read Broadway scripts from her parents’ theater magazine.
Having worked in the world of oceanography, bio-medicine, and aerospace engineering; she brings these experiences to her sci-fi paranormals and imbues them with her idealistic philosophy that merges science and spirituality.

The Bearded Potter
Handcrafted ceramic pottery is a long and prestigious profession that reaches far back in all cultures in history. Unfortunately, because of societal demands, the art of hand crafted pottery has become a thing of the past. These days, one can purchase a large variety of inexpensive ceramics made by the thousands in far away factories using molds and cheap labor to fulfill the needs of growing populations.
“Hand Made” is a thing of the past.
As The Bearded Potter I have come to the conclusion that this needs to change. There are those of you out there who appreciate a beautiful, and functional, hand crafted vessel and it is my goal to bring back to life the dying art that is Handmade Pottery.
