WELCOME to my shop; please browse listings and contact me with any questions about any of the items! If I don't have it listed, I may still have it, so ask away!

Like many, I love ALL things vintage. Reminds us of loved ones or times gone by, special places and people who touched our lives ….. or back to a simpler, easier time in our life. Whatever the reason, there’s nothing like that instant connection when you find something sitting dusty on a shelf or in a pile of yard sale clutter that resembles a memento from your past ..... or you just “know” is a valuable find!

Early inspirations: My Aunt Mae and Grandma Lydia. Both kept old trunks, storing “valuables” ~~ old trinkets, hankies, linens, jewelry, pictures, bric-a-brac ~~ full of birthday and other gifts they NEVER used, Heaven forbid; they only took…

Early inspirations: My Aunt Mae and Grandma Lydia. Both kept old trunks, storing “valuables” ~~ old trinkets, hankies, linens, jewelry, pictures, bric-a-brac ~~ full of birthday and other gifts they NEVER used, Heaven forbid; they only took them out to admire them from time to time. Sometimes they would let us look at their plunder (always keeping a close eye on us, of course, and never leaving the trunks open too long!). The contents seemed magical and we loved seeing/touching the items and hearing stories of who they came from, when, and why; neither trunk held anything of great money value, but each and every carefully stored piece was dear to both of them.

Became mildly obsessed (an oxymoron?) with antiques after my Mom passed; maybe keeping her memory closer with things she at one time had/used; spent the next 30+ years going overboard. Thrift shops, flea markets, auctions, and yard sales were regular haunts; I came to know many of the people there on a first-name basis (a true sign of the collecting bug). Now my entire house resembles the insides of those trunks; they could barely close the lids because they were so full and the same could be said for my doors. When your collections become clutter and you can’t enjoy them, it’s time to purge and let go (or at least reduce your quantities); hopefully someone else will enjoy my things as much as I have. Aunt Mae, Grandma, and Mom would all approve!!
