Elizabeth's Profile

About

Hi! Welcome to MostlyMadelines, a shop where you'll find everything vintage, some in it's "found" condition and others that have been given a "makeover" or repurposed. Some pretty cool stuff!!

My name is Elizabeth and I've been collecting for many years. I love things from days gone by! My house is decorated with things from just about every decade, but there's only so much a person can keep (as I am frequently reminded of!!).
Thus, the opening of our Etsy shop to share some of the "finds".

My shop is named after my favorite "hunting" partner, Madeline. At the young age of 8, she began going to auctions and sales with me and now at the age of 12, has developed quite an eye for the "good stuff"!! She knows that if she finds some vintage treasures for me to sell, she will more than likely…

Thus, the opening of our Etsy shop to share some of the "finds".

My shop is named after my favorite "hunting" partner, Madeline. At the young age of 8, she began going to auctions and sales with me and now at the age of 12, has developed quite an eye for the "good stuff"!! She knows that if she finds some vintage treasures for me to sell, she will more than likely benefit from the proceeds, probably in the form of "itunes" or something else she "needs"!!
When she has the time, between school activities and sports, she helps me with various aspects of our Etsy business.

After attending estate sales, tag sales, & auctions for so many years, it becomes somewhat of an addiction. The "hunting" is a big part of the fun! A couple of friends and I have even been known to do a little "dumpster diving" if we think there might be some treasures awaiting us!

Here are some facts about me:
Name: Elizabeth, Izzy to some, Betty to others
Age: Never mind!

Location: Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. We're in beautiful Door County, in a wooded setting, with cherry and apple orchards for "neighbors". Door County is a summer tourist destination, especially for those from neighboring states of Illinois and Minnesota.

Children: One son and one daughter

Hobbies: Collecting vintage, reading, a variety of different art mediums, repurposing, being outdoors, walking in the woods

My biggest fear: Falling head-first into a dumpster, and being left there to perish, knowing I have lots of projects at home to finish!! Well, it COULD happen, couldn't it?

Enjoy looking through our shop!
