Hi, and Welcome to Michelle's Variety Shop. 

My Dad was an avid collector of everything old. I guess that is where I got my love of Variety. I can remember tagging along to many sales and auctions with him. Even though my Dad is gone now, I still can't pass by a sale without stopping. In all those early morning trips to sales, my Dad taught me the value of Vintage items and how important it is to keep our history alive. Now I'm always on the look out for vintage items I can share with others that also want to hold on to a piece of history. 

I started making bird toys shortly after I got my first bird. When I realized the toys in the pet stores were overpriced for what you got, unsafe and some are made overseas in a factory. Over the years I have taken in a "few" birds that really needed a new forever home where they would be loved and cared for, so I started offering my line of toys to other bird "parronts" to help take care of the crew here. Any toys seen pictured with a bird were either distributed to the birds here or are pictures customers sent in. Feel free to send us a picture of your feathered friend with their new toy. 

From one of my favorite movies: My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys " What are you doing up there?" "Just trying to stay above the crowd." "What are you doing down there?" "Just trying to get by without shoving." That pretty much explains my life. I'm just trying to make a living and support my family. You never know what new idea I'll have to share with you. Thanks for stopping by, please feel free to convo me with any questions you may have.
