About Lulu Bea

I first started making upcycled goods a number of years ago because I simply wanted to create.  I had always wished I grew-up in one of those families that made their own clothes… or spent my summer days at my grandmother’s heels as she taught me the wise old ways of the handmade world.  I was in awe of people who could make things.  Then it dawned on me… why can’t I do it too?  I decided to buy myself a sewing machine (used of course) and simply have a go.  Next, a friend showed me the basics of knitting, I checked-out crochet books from the library, watched “how-to” videos online and I was on my way!  Eventually I started to build up quite an inventory of my finished projects that I didn’t know what to do with; thus became the birth of this website.

I make these products from mostly upcycled, recycled, and repurposed materials.  Ideally I would like to use 100% upcycled materials, but sometimes that is just not feasible.  My primary source of materials comes from thrift stores, followed by donations, scraps leftover from previous projects and items that I already have in my possession.  While the raw materials may come second hand, they are laundered (when applicable) and come from a smoke and pet free environment… so have no fear!  Second-hand goods are just as nice (if not better) than newly purchased ones!!

I love experimenting and trying new projects, and I strive to offer as wide a variety of items on my website as possible.  Please check back with me frequently, as I plan to update my inventory as fast as my little fingers can work.  All of my items are made with enthusiasm and joy, and I hope you will love them as much as I do.  I am honored that you have stopped by my lounge.  Feel free to stop by anytime.
