Hi, I’m Ana Collado and I run City Tinker. I am based in the beautiful and bustling New York City. As sole owner and designer of my shop, I create and tend to every handmade piece that lands in my supporters’ hands and home.
I believe positivity is contagious and I infuse all my good vibes into my work. Everyone should surround themselves with beauty and it’s and honor for my pieces to be part of your world. I also find joy in curating various unique items I add to City Tinker.
City Tinker was created in 2016 as an idea, and sort of spirit animal. Taking things apart, fixing, rehabilitating , and creating, is what City Tinker is all about. Creativity is its own catalyst! A piece that has lost its life can be up-cycled into something better, something that will spark an interest or idea in someone else. That someone might breathe new found inspiration into what ever they love to do. Creating is what being a tinkerer is all about and the “city” gives it a bit of a rough edge. Being a City Tinker is a state of mind, and definitely something to embrace.
