Hi! I’m Penelope Quinn and I’m a journalist, TV presenter, craft addict and upcycling fanatic!

Passionate about reaching out to the a new generation of thrifty, resourceful crafters, I’m constantly on the hunt for ‘crafty life hacks’ and new ways to upcycle fashion, jewellery, homewares and furniture while treading lightly on the earth.

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, classic car meet, at the beach or hanging with my cat Steve (above).

If you have an event or product you’d like me to review, you can contact me at penelope_quinn@y7mail.com.

Thanks for visiting darnsexysecondhand.com!

Below is a little something I put together with Triton Productions. 🙂

    Lovely blog. I live in Newtown and as such have a great appreciation for the retro look (Retro-Town is more like it). However, the shops have become quite expensive and I just can’t find the bargains anymore.


  5. I agree roomstogrow! Seems like anything “retro” or vintage comes with a price tag these days – things are only worth what people will pay for them after all! Try antique and op shops in smaller regional towns – fingers crossed you’ll find some undiscovered treasures! Thanks for following xPQ
