Hot New Find

Café Libertalia, a Mico Mall featuring an Internet cafe in the heart of Hillcrest has a new tenant. As of November Mostly Magpie by Darcy Stumbaygh has taken up the front vendor space of the cafe and is offering unique reclaimed jewelry and components, fun screen prints, and exceptional leatherwork. I had a blast sorting through her selection of watch parts used and new and eclectic assortment of beads. 

“We have lots of vintage jewelry at low prices, ideal for either accessorizing or for making new treasures, and we specialize in old pocket and wristwatch movements and parts for repair or steampunking. We are fully stocked with leather, supplies, and tools and are available 1pm-9pm (and often longer) for do-it-yourself leatherworking, with free instruction, assistance, and use of awesome tools. Make bracelets, watch bands, belts, buckles, leatherbound journals and more. Our steampunk supplies include mechanical watches and parts, brass rivets snaps and findings, glass vials, butterfly wings, feathers, old coins, old brooches, and shiny things. We sell real Victorian antiques. We're also full of beads and findings with tools available to make your own jewelry on-site, so come on in to learn and create with us!"

As of mid December Café Libertalia is offering access to a kiln and ceramic classes. December 17th the cafe will host a Holiday Extravaganza. Come by from 12pm to 11pm and check out this the Shop-a-Thon with local artist works for sale and a Holiday party with 3 bands. Check out events for more info or send an email to Mostly Magpie at
