I have another Etsy shop called "My Mother's House" full of vintage collections, unique items and family pieces. I love vintage but need to start down sizing! Etsy is the perfect platform for me to feel good about finding buyers who really care about history, art, style and decor.

Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me! I hope I get a chance to get to know you, that you like my shops and will come back again.
