Amanda~ I love pretty much anything that is vintage. Fabric, trims, accessories, and all things to do with sewing.

Eileen~ Amanda's Mum. We are blessed to live in what has been called 'The Gateway to America' with our dear family. Not only do we get to enjoy its rich heritage and history, but we also get to "hunt" for some of its hidden gems. There is a treasure trove of vintage and antique items tucked in homes throughout our area.

If a textile is damaged, I now have a daughter who not only loves textiles and sewing, but who also loves repurposing them into treasures for your home. Talk about recycling! This cottage store is actually the fruition of a dream that began years ago thanks to "Victoria" magazine. To be able to do this with my talented daughter is priceless. We are happy to share our love of textiles, china, and unusual items to help you create precious memories for your family as we have been doing for years. Enjoy your hunt through Mandatory Treasures for some special treasures for your home. May God bless and keep you and yours.
