Donna S.'s Profile

About

Hello! I am the shopkeeper of Eau Pleine Vintage! Let me explain a little about who I am.

My roots are in Wisconsin but have traveled as far away as Spain and Germany and lived/ worked in various locations. I retired from the healthcare field 8 years ago when we settled here in Central Wisconsin. We live near the Eau Pleine Flowage so hence the name of my shop.

My mother taught me a love of gardening and plants tho my love of old things began with my grandfather. My mom thought he collected 'junk'! I knew better! It was cool stuff! I went thru a period of young adulthood where 'new' was better but I went beyond that long ago! I am a total history buff, whether in what I read, view or acquire. I love everything from the past and vacations are often spent in areas of the country that are full of historic places to visit…

Hello! I am the shopkeeper of Eau Pleine Vintage! Let me explain a little about who I am.

My roots are in Wisconsin but have traveled as far away as Spain and Germany and lived/ worked in various locations. I retired from the healthcare field 8 years ago when we settled here in Central Wisconsin. We live near the Eau Pleine Flowage so hence the name of my shop.

My mother taught me a love of gardening and plants tho my love of old things began with my grandfather. My mom thought he collected 'junk'! I knew better! It was cool stuff! I went thru a period of young adulthood where 'new' was better but I went beyond that long ago! I am a total history buff, whether in what I read, view or acquire. I love everything from the past and vacations are often spent in areas of the country that are full of historic places to visit.

I love to recycle and re-use old things whether in my garden or in my house. I love to browse rummage sales, estate sales and old crummy shops with hidden rooms! I love a good mystery and like to imagine the story behind the items I buy. Of course with my own family items, I have many of the stories and always share them in my listing.

I stopped putting all my antiques in my ‘cupboard’ and started to actually use them years ago. As I have learned in my garden and in my life, LIFE is too short not to enjoy all these lovely things. I am a Cancer survivor. Besides gardening I love to read, enjoy nature especially the large variety of birds that call my 3 acres home, the woods I live in and I love to travel with my husband when we can.

So please stay a moment and wander thru my Eau Pleine Vintage Shop. I always put my customer first because that is how I want to be treated. If you have a shipping preference or are in a country I don't quote, please convo me with the request before purchase so I may address the question.

I hope you stay and browse my shop: you might find that perfect item you can't live without!
