Estate Shoppe Now Open

August 1, 2017

Peg Saintcross joins the new Chautauqua Team bringing pieces of the past turned into treasures for today.





Peg has always had a passion for crafting and creating. Throughout her career she has expressed this passion doing everything from owning her own catering company to working at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. Peg also has a heart for nonprofits and our nation's veterans. This lead her to join Legacy Corps, a branch of AmeriCorps that serves veterans and their family members. Peg lead Legacy Corps dutifully for five years before leaving to return to her one true love-crafting. Now Peg has her own company, Thirteen Ladybugs, and she creates recycled and repurposed one of a kind crafts and projects. Thirteen Ladybugs has allowed her to do what she loves while meeting kind, like-minded individuals."This should definitely be fact checked and grammar checked, but hopefully this will do what you need it to do. Let me know if you need something different/more formal.


Peg loves to take items no longer wearable or usable in whole and give them new life. All Thirteen Ladybugs items are made by hand from materials that are vintage and/or repurposed.


All Thirteen Ladybugs items are made by hand from materials that are vintage and/or repurposed.  All Thirteen Ladybugs creations are one of a kind; no item will ever be duplicated.
