Oldbird's Profile

About

I am blessed to live in the Foothills of the beautiful Canadian Rocky mountains.

I started this 'Etsy thing' years ago, so if you're wondering why the shop has been up for awhile and sells small random things and doesn't have tons of listings, it's because all I have done is buy stuff... What a wonderful stage for incredible artisans!

I love corvids and just like the old bird I am, I collect 'pretty', or interesting things. I also love auctions and over the years have accumulated a lot of 'stuff''. My nest is running out of room, and so I've decided to open up my eclectic world and offer some of the unique and lovingly collected treasures that I have found and enjoyed for decades.

I have owned my own shop for years as a retail outlet and because my 'stuff' is all vintage, antique or collectable,…

I love corvids and just like the old bird I am, I collect 'pretty', or interesting things. I also love auctions and over the years have accumulated a lot of 'stuff''. My nest is running out of room, and so I've decided to open up my eclectic world and offer some of the unique and lovingly collected treasures that I have found and enjoyed for decades.

I have owned my own shop for years as a retail outlet and because my 'stuff' is all vintage, antique or collectable, I am accustomed to taking offers. I will not be insulted if you email me with an offer on one of my listings. Warning... I am also accustomed to telling people they are too rude or too cheap to shop in my store I love collecting, and part of that joy is in meeting the people who share my passion and appreciation for antique treasures.

The internet is a global communication, but I would like to try to keep my shop as personal as possible. Andy Warhol had 5 warehouses full of wonderful 'stuff'. I'm not Andy Warhol, but I do have a huge collection of 'stuff', so if you have been looking for a special thing, and can't find it, feel comfortable emailing me and you just never know....if I don't have it, I may know where to find it....I welcome your inquiries. .The internet selling thing is very new to me, so please have patience...I get braver every day.I seem to be very brave when it comes to buying...

If you want to look at a lot of 'stuff' , feel welcome at my website, www.crabgrassprops.com.

As I get more organized and accustomed to selling things, I will be adding original art works and handmade designs to the shop. But for now....just 'stuff'. I love that my collections have travelled from Australia, to Texas, to France....I'm a tiny shop, but I'm global.

I love it.

I hope you enjoy poking around in my shop as much I have enjoyed collecting it.
Little warning....I want to ONLY deal with payment by Paypal. Etsy has changed their working program and if I can't figure out what or why they are doing this, I may just close my little shop. Update: I have been TOLD that I either use the new Etsy hooked up payment plan or they will close my shop. I'm going to save them the trouble. I will close it myself. Very sad....but it seems that Etsy has become more important than the people it is supposed to be supporting.

I hope not, because it's been great fun!

Thanks for stopping by 'The Rookery'.
