About

I have been going to garage sales and antique shows since I was very young. I come from a family who appreciates the old things in life and have always felt like I was born in the wrong time. I love the hunt whether it is at estate sales or the thrift store. I love a good deal, and most importantly, I LOVE passing on a good deal.

I have recently started broadening my horizons by creating my own objects from vintage materials. I never have considered myself a crafty person. Can't paint, Can't work a potter's wheel, and truly, can't draw a straight line, even with a ruler. So when I started attending "junk shows" and thought... I think I can do that. I opened up a whole new world for myself. Now I can't shut it off. I am looking for patterns that I like in shower curtains and dishtowels for goodness sakes!

I am starting to see everything in the world as it's own piece of art. It is a blessing and a curse. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with ideas!

So this is my shop, filled with good deals on awesome vintage(typically 1950s and older), and a few little homespun goodies I made myself. I want you to come back often, and I want you to always be thrilled with your purchases. Talk to me about a price, if you think it is too high, and I will do my best to accommodate you. If you are looking for something specific, let me help! If i don't have it, maybe I know who does- and I am ALWAYS happy to be on the lookout for whatever you want! I am not doing this to be rich, I am doing it because I love it. Best wishes to you all-
