WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND AND THE STORY BEHIND WHY YOU STARTED toomanysparkles?

toomanysparkles was born out of my collection of vintage and unwanted fabrics. After working in the fashion industry for decades, I amassed a diverse fabric assortment full of fun prints, patterns, and color. I love upcycling the fabric into one of a kind notebooks, art, and now, scrunchies!

 

 

WHAT ONE PRODUCT DO WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT AND WHY?

My one-of-a-kind notebooks have become collectibles. Once you fill up one book, you need to come back for more!

 

 

 

IN THREE WORDS, WHY DO YOU LOVE PITTSBURGH?

Family, topography, kindness.

 

 

HOW CAN PEOPLE FIND OUT MORE ABOUT YOU?

Best way to see what I am up to is visit our love, Pittsburgh shops. I keep us stocked with my latest creations.
