Hi, I'm Sarah...

and those two cuties are Emerson (Emmy) and Josephine (JoJo) - the best helpers ever. The pups and my husband (above) are my most incredible cheerleaders and assistants on this crazy maker journey. I started Collectanea [*collec-TAY-nee-uh*] toward the end of 2017 and am loving the process of developing my own style and really harnessing that mid-century “vibe.”

I've always been a maker. I'm continually trying new art / craft mediums like wood burning, macrame, knitting, book making, watercolor painting, acrylic... anything I can get my hands on. I thrive on keeping my creative spirit busy and sharing my passion for handcrafted art, housewares, and especially mid-century and modern designs.

It's so nice to have you here and I hope you find something that you love or that inspires you to make something yourself. I enjoy meeting people in person too, so if you're in the Seattle / Puget Sound area, we should grab a drink (coffee, wine, whatever)!



Find out more about local events where I’ll have a booth set up here or on Instagram @collectaneashop. These events are SO awesome and have a ton of other local makers to shop from. So not only can we connect in person, but you can connect with a ton of other Puget Sound makers too! Shop local, support small business, and do your local community some good!
