Gothic Martha Stewart

I first heard of Gothic Martha Stewart while I was living in England though at that time I had never heard of Martha Stewart. Flea Towers is packed to the rafters with curios and ethnographic miscellany making an "opposite of minimalist" Victorian look a virtue of necessity.

This site sprung from the hypothetical question: "What if Martha Stewart was a goth?" For the uninitiated, Martha Stewart is a phenomenally successful domestic arts champion and stylemaker who advocates an upscale but not ostentatious style of living which has a lot to do with making things yourself and finding new uses for the old, instead of just buying everything new.

Inasmuch as goths are the most domestic subculture I've ever encountered - they pair off neatly, take pride in their homes, decorate obsessively, cook well - a goth Martha is almost redundant.

*sigh* This is one of my favourite websites. I consult Gothic Martha Stewart all the time. Rick, that's what I'm talking about ;)
