I am a collector that is passionate about vintage items from jewelry to furniture and everything in between. Offering vintage or antique pieces allows people to have a one-of-a kind item that not only has the craftsmanship and durability but is also eco friendly. My personal collection is ever changing as I find, learn and fall in love with new pieces. As with many collectors turned sellers, I love & buy more than I collected. I started selling in local groups & markets and the decision was easy to open my Etsy shop in 2014.
My treasure hunting started with lessons from my mother who was also a collector, of antique furniture. She taught us not to be wasteful, to try and repair or up-cycle something before getting rid of it and donate unwanted items before adding them to the landfill. I have great appreciation for those lessons she taught us!
Today, I frequent garage sales & thrift stores along with estate sales, markets and antique stores. I love the memories that flood back when I find something from my childhood or something I remember my grandparents having. I'm excited when I find that piece of history or that item I know is different from anything else I can find mass produced today. I am delighted that I am able to share this passion with my family and my customers. I incorporate vintage fashions and home decor with new. I appreciate the detail and beauty of vintage items that have stood the test of time and add them to my everyday life. It's one way I recycle, reuse and up-cycle while getting many more years of enjoyment from these amazing pieces.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my shop and maybe find that treasure you're looking for!
Happy shopping and happy collecting!
