About

As a child who spent much time in New York City, I was fascinated by Art Deco work in the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Grand Central train station, and The Plaza and Waldorf-Astoria hotels. It was there I began to see how exquisite and refined fine serving china, a stylized elevator door, colorful tile work, or even a hallway vase could be.

Design has been an integral part of my life.

Everything in HamiltonBay is from my own personal collection. I decided these wonderful things should come out of the closets and drawers and cabinets -- and have a new life in a new home -- to be used and admired once again!

My shop is named for Hamilton Bay in Bermuda -- a place dear to my heart.

I am a member of Etsy Vintage Team (EVT), Vintage Etsy Society Street Teams (the VESTIES), Etsy Success, Vintage Lovers, the EJ Art Treasury Promotion Team, and Shop Your (heart) Out Team..

Thank you for visiting HamiltonBay! And visit periodically, as I am constantly adding great and interesting vintage pieces!
