Hello and Welcome to Elephant on a Wire!
Starting at a young age, I went thifting, antiquing, and flea marketing with my family. Before my sister and I were born, my mother was known to buy pieces of antique furniture that were still being used by shop owners and she was no less determined after she became a mother. She often enlisted my sister and me to search for an elusive item but also encouraged us to find our own treasures at the market. As I grew up and developed my own vintage aesthetic, my mom taught me the tell-tale differences between true antiques and mere reproductions.
As such, I’m reshaping my Etsy shop from a jewelry-making hobby to a bona fide vintage store. I hope to use the funds I make to save for and then float myself through a graduate program in social work…
