Come on in and look around at Marky's Market your online consignment store. Here at Marky's we give you an opportunity to go back to a time when shopping was the day's entertainment. When a child could wander the isles searching for the treasure that mom promised, if you were good and behaved yourself, while she went into the bakery. The smell of fresh baked bread filled the air and a huge dill pickle could be purchased for a nickel.
Marky's online consignment store is a cooperative effort of fine artisans of Utah and Arizona. As an online consignment store we bring you unique, mostly one-of-a-kind creations.
While you are looking about in Marky's online consignment store let your mind fill with the stories our artists have given you. Each creation has the warmth and tenderness of the artist at its core. Our hand thrown and painted pottery tells its own story or maybe shares in yours.
Our photographers have captured a moment in time that touched them and tells a story.

The foot of the purse is supported by a matching fabric hard board adding to the strength and functionality of these fun and fanciful purses. Her Pretty In Pink has been washed and dried. It has a thready edge adding a softer appearance.
They are machine washable if you remove the foot piece and line dry. Top to bottom measures 6 ½ x 6½ " with an approximately 3 ½ " depth.
10/23/12:These are the answer for those sporting longer hair. The first two who purchased one got together and dubbed them, "sheanies" rather than their counterparts, beanies. They fit snuggly over the ears and have a finished edge opening in back for a ponytail or long hair to fall freely but held back from the face. They are great for keeping hair back on your motorcycle, bicycle, quad or convertible. Besides they're cute. These are hand knit, with a little crochet thrown in and are machine washable and dryable.
