Local Featured Seller: Good Girls Studio

Who are you?
Johanna Ely of
Good Girls Studio and the destash/vintage shop: Some Girls Horde

Where are you located?
North Raleigh

What do you create?
Revamped vintage jewelry

What is your favorite place to visit in the "triangle"?
The Cupcake Shoppe , for obvious reasons ! : ) {their Plain Jane cupcake is the yummiest!}

What is your most cherished handmade item?
A quilt my late grandmother made for me for High School graduation followed with a close second of a Mothers' Day card made by my son!

Why did you choose your medium?
I love to give new life to old forgotten treasures. To take what I can from the past & add to it or change it to make it even more beautiful.

What inspires you?
nature...God, the greatest & original Creator!

Why did you choose your shop name?
I am the middle child, the peace maker, sandwiched in between an older stinky brother & younger wilder sister...I am, by order of my birth, the good girl ! Always have been, always will be ; ) & as for Girls (Good Girls Studio) being plural, well, I must have been feeling a little bipolar (Me, Myself & I ) the day I named my company!

What do you do when you are not creating?
When I'm not busy creating you can find me at the park with my son, teaching Sunday School to a playful bunch of pre-k 3yr olds or reading a good book (while munching on cupcakes!).
