  1. I’ve been to Tin Can Sally’s workshop to view her handiwork firsthand…. and it IS handiwork! Each piece is cut with heavy-duty shears or punched out (as I recall?)…. carefully making sure that the tin is not distorted, crimped or rippled in any way….the pieces are then assembled with tiny rivets (and glue?)… TCS’s various hand-crafted items are colorful, whimsical and most imaginative. (Rumor has it that she’s working on a clothing line??!!)
