About

DearJane Vintage reflects my love of salvage and recycling items from the mid-twentieth century. When I was a kid growing up in rural Minnesota in the 1970's, my grandmother took me to rummage and estate sales. She collected pretty items--dishes, fabrics, jewelry--and then resold them as a side business. She called herself a "junk collector" but was really a recycler ahead of her time. She instilled her love of the items from the past and the stories they tell us today. Etsy gives me the opportunity to share great vintage pieces and their stories with a large online community.
