Welcome to Powder Monki!

In my shop you will find handmade retro badges/magnets and retro keyrings, as well as other craft items including jewellery, makeup bags, sparkly badges and greeting cards.

I have a love of photography, am a self taught web designer and a keen genealogist. Along side Powder Monki, I run a 1980’s-90’s toy collectors website called Ghost of the Doll, and my genealogy site Tracing Ghosts.
