About

I grew up very poor during the Great Depression. That period of my life gave me a great love for beautiful things.... beautiful jewelry, beautiful clothes, hats, purses, accessories. All of these things were indicators of a better life, happiness and contentment.

I also continued to collect beautiful things. My vintage jewely collection includes Sarah Coventry, Lisner, Weiss, Eisenberg, Trifari and other bright, sparkling pieces! I have Vintage Clothing from the turn of the Century (1900's) through the 1970's. That quite a range of styles. In addition, I have hats, purses, gloves, scarves, furs, cloaks, coats, shoes and more!

At this point in my life, I realize that I need to downsize. I am preparing to move to Texas to live closer to my daughters. So, all of my treasures need a new home. Perhaps with you!!
