About

Previously I had an antique booth in a nearby town and then this wonderful tool came along called " the internet" and it changed everything. Etsy gives me greater exposure to many places and areas in this big, wide world, and I have more traffic or views, than I ever had at my little shop.

It all started with My Mother who loved to go to Church Rummage Sales and would bring me along. Together we would always find such great things. My Father always called it "stuff" but he was pleased and proud that we could find such good stuff and not break the bank. I mean there were eleven (11) of us living in one home and we went through a lot of things, so having hand me down clothes and second hand things never bothered me.

Call it an obsession, call it a compulsion, call it hoarding, call it anything you want - but I LOVE doing it and I can't help myself. I just love to find old things that have a history and are still useful. My house is overflowing with things that I have found at Rummage Sales, Estate Sales, Garage Sales, Thrift Stores, heck I've even found things at the curb in the garbage pile. This helps me to put food on the table and pay a few bills. Someday I would love to donate all my profits to benefit the men and women who come out of jail and prison who have to start over. Sometimes society does not treat these folks well at all and they deserve better.

SO When all is said and done and when I am out and about looking for the Next New Find....IT'S NOT WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR, IT WHAT'S YOU FIND and it's all about the Hunt isn't it?
