About

Hello and Welcome!

I've been a devoted collector of paper ephemera for 35+ years. I opened my first internet store at that huge auction site about 8 years ago where I’ve built up a consistent inventory of fun and interesting items; a mixture of truly vintage paper items such as sheet music, maps, book pages, etc.; repros of vintage images via postcards, notecards, playing cards, etc.; new and vintage game pieces such as mini dominoes, bingo dots, puzzle pieces, etc.; scrapbooking stickers; printed collage sheets; digital collage sheets scanned and designed by me; watch parts and watch crystals; and lots of other fun stuff!

I began scanning in images from my collections of Victorian trading cards, vintage postcards, antique and vintage books, magazine covers & ads, labels (e.g., cigar, crate, perfume, and more) and other items about…

Hello and Welcome!

I've been a devoted collector of paper ephemera for 35+ years. I opened my first internet store at that huge auction site about 8 years ago where I’ve built up a consistent inventory of fun and interesting items; a mixture of truly vintage paper items such as sheet music, maps, book pages, etc.; repros of vintage images via postcards, notecards, playing cards, etc.; new and vintage game pieces such as mini dominoes, bingo dots, puzzle pieces, etc.; scrapbooking stickers; printed collage sheets; digital collage sheets scanned and designed by me; watch parts and watch crystals; and lots of other fun stuff!

I began scanning in images from my collections of Victorian trading cards, vintage postcards, antique and vintage books, magazine covers & ads, labels (e.g., cigar, crate, perfume, and more) and other items about 7 years ago; taking a few digital graphics classes along the way. I now have about 250,000 images in my digital archives; most scanned by me and some scanned by others for me - that's a lot of discs! About a year ago my sister told me about a very wonderful and unique website called Etsy, so I decided to check it out and that’s where I discovered that artists and craftspeople were looking for the types of images I had been so carefully preserving all these years!

So I opened this Etsy Shoppe and began designing and selling digital collage sheets. I now have a second shop where I sell my unique and beautiful images as prints, note cards, and postcards.

I feel that most of my success in this business has to do with wanting to provide the best products and customer service I can. Keeping my inventory fresh and varied and offering new and unique digital items is a top priority. I also get my orders out in a timely basis and always notify my customer if there are any delays – after all, life happens!
