Here's a bit about me:
My parents used to drag me around to antique fairs, thrift stores, and auction houses when I was a kid. I'd complain to no end about the dusty paths at the outdoor markets, the heat of the summer as we'd wander up and down those endless aisles, the stink of the old stuff and the crazy people we'd see.

Funny thing, though, now those are the things I love. Not only when summer rolls around, but all year long. I get an itch to go in search of the best antiques and vintage stuff around! I love meeting interesting people along the way and finding dusty, dirty treasures to pass along to others! I've been collecting for years and have an eye for great stuff…

I've taken this love antiquing and treasure hunting and combined it with my other passion which is decorating. I have a background in home decor and love to incorporate old with new, shiny with chippy, and rust with chrome. The juxtaposition is magical and brings a home to life.

When my youngest son went to school full time, I found my self a little rattled and lost as a stay-at-home mom with nobody to stay at home with. I needed to find my way back into the work force. I knew where my strengths lied, and I when I found Etsy.com, it was a natural fit. This shop has given me joy, solace and focus - that's why I named my shop CALM, COOL, & COLLECTED Vintage! Enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!
