Hi! I’m Penelope Quinn and I’m a freelance journalist, TV presenter, craft addict and upcycling fanatic currently living in East London.
I’m passionate about reaching out to the a new generation of thrifty, resourceful crafters and constantly on the hunt for fashion and beauty inspired ‘crafty life hacks’. I love to create beautiful, practical pieces that are kind to the wallet and the earth, without sacrificing style.
I also run craft demonstrations and workshops, craft parties for hens and babies showers, and write for a variety of publications including Lifestyle Channel, Style Hunter and Yahoo!7. And when I’m not doing that, you can usually find me at a market, hanging out with my Miss Pinup Australia pinups, crafting dream catchers and making my cat Steve (above) pose for pictures.
If you have an event or product you’d like me to write about, you can contact me at penelope_quinn@y7mail dot com.
Thanks for visiting darnsexysecondhand.com!
Below is a little something I put together with the help of the amazing Matt Tomaszewski from Triton Productions. 🙂
