About Grateful Heart Marketplace

Welcome to Grateful Heart Marketplace! My name is Lynn.

I was fortunate to have a grandmother that spent a lot of time sewing, crocheting and doing needlework. She taught me some of her skills and I am thankful that I was old enough to have an interest and learn from her. I am been making crafts, crocheting and sewing for as long as I can remember. Over the years, I made items for friends, family and to give as gifts.

In the summer of 2014, I experienced a personal medical issue that nearly ended my life. I was extremely blessed and against the odds, I survived. That experience changed my life in every way imaginable. In 2016, I sold my house, the majority of my belongings and I headed off in my RV to begin the next chapter of my life. I now travel around exploring new places and taking in the beauty of the United States. One of my goals is to eventually visit every National Park.

I love sewing and creating useful items. I decided to develop an online website and Etsy Shop to sell the items I make and Grateful Heart Marketplace was the result. Sometimes I don't add new items because I am traveling or do not have electricity for the sewing machine since I am boondocking (camping without being connected to utilities.) However, I will always ship out an order from the nearest Post Office.

All of my items are handmade and many are one of a kind. Generally the products I make are smaller and light weight because I have a small work area and do not have a lot of storage space in the RV. Special order products (sizes & colors) of any of my current products are available. Just ask! One of the fun aspects of items I make is that it may have been made by the ocean, while listening to the waves, in the mountains surrounded by tall pine trees, next to a lake or under a Saguaro Cactus.

My RV is smoke free and I do not use fragrance sprays or candles. Most of my cooking is done outdoors. I take care in storing finished products and keep each one in a sealed bag and sealed storage containers to keep them free from dust. I do have a small dog with me so if there are allergies, please be aware of this fact.

Thank you for visiting Grateful Heart Marketplace. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
