I inherited the shopping gene from my mother - she always took the kids out for walks - at the shopping centers and night markets! Mom's version of "exercise can be fun" has had a lasting impact on all of her daughters!
Hence, I am an avid shopper - totally into retro, vintage and kitsch! Strong believer in the 3 Rs - reduce, reuse, recycle. I find older items fascinating - they bring back happy memories of the days spent shopping with Mom.
I live in Virginia with my husband and I'm a mom now to 3 wonderful cats (goodbye sweet Nestlé - 12/22/08 - you will be in our hearts forever). My cats have no interest in shopping, so it looks like the gene stops here! We are a non-smoking family.
DandelionGirl is a way for me to showcase and find good homes for some of my own treasures collected over the years…
