I have many passions in my life, family of course but I also love finding vintage treasuries it really gets my blood pumping from the night before to standing in line to get into a great old estate sale the anticipation to getting in there and searching is so much fun and has really turned my life around.

Up until four years ago I was a general Manager for a Restaurant for 20 years and then I was in a serious car accident and things went down hill not only was my body broken but my spirit was also, not only could I do things physically anymore but it effected me mentally and spiritually, Then I found this and while some think it is only Etsy to me it is a life saver it gets me up in the morning gives me something to be passionate about and while I still can not do…

Hi,

Up until four years ago I was a general Manager for a Restaurant for 20 years and then I was in a serious car accident and things went down hill not only was my body broken but my spirit was also, not only could I do things physically anymore but it effected me mentally and spiritually, Then I found this and while some think it is only Etsy to me it is a life saver it gets me up in the morning gives me something to be passionate about and while I still can not do very physical things that is where my hubby comes in I can do all of the connecting with people and picking out the treasuries that is what is important. He can do all the cleaning and lifting and carrying. It has brought us alot closer to have this in common so it is a win double win in my world.

I have always loved Vintage have had a house full but now sharing those treasuries is so much more rewarding. Finding something that is going to go into someones home their collection's and have their children play with gives it a special place for me I take it personal and make sure everything I pick out would be something some one would want to have but just cant get to finding it right due to raising children or working, I am your personal vintage shopper.

So how did we get into Selling on Etsy well we rescued some birds a few parakeets Stella, mamma, gargomel and two big birds a cockatoo Sophia and Rosco a Yellow nape Amazon and was going to sell some of my collections to help pay for their care and once I got started I was hooked and the saying that is all she wrote applies here.

Once I got started I really liked having that connection to people and feel needed and appreciated and felt like I was contributing even in a small way was worth while.
