About

When I was five, I attended an antique auction with my dad.The peacocks at the site interested me much more than the auction items. Eventually I became bored and wanted to go home. It's one of my first memories.
Fast forward too many years. My dad and I are sharing a space at Round Top. This is a ginormous antique show where thousands of dealers (and buyers) come to spend a couple of weeks. We did this for two years. It's one of my favorite memories.
The fascination with cool old stuff is genetically coded within me. For years I collected items that for whatever reason just caught my eye.

Except: I'm not two young dudes. I am a "woman of a certain age"
I don't drive a cool van. Everything has to fit in my Honda sedan
I don't travel around the country. But I do know Central Texas fairly well.
I'm not on the History Channel. But you are welcome to watch my Etsy site.
I don't have an apparently bottomless pocket of cash. I have a yard sale allowance.
This isn't how I fund my lifestyle. I am quite passionate about my "day job". But I enjoy sharing the unique and quirky items that I find. I also enjoy selling them. I think that my son would like to move from the shed back into the house. Please poke around, and convo me with any questions. My items are vintage or antique.This means that they are old and used. Honest to goodness *people* enjoyed these items. I promise to describe and photograph any flaws that I find.

Thanks Y'all.
