I first set up my store to find new homes for the many “Treasures” that once belonged to my mother and grandmother; the treasures that I have brought home over the years. With no one to leave them to, I wanted to give them the opportunity to be enjoyed by a new generation, or transformed into objects of art. It cleverly took me no time at all to realize that this applies to all of the things that are in my own treasured collections as well. AND THEN I made the best discovery of all. Having an Etsy store gives me an excuse make more things, and to continue to add to my collections as things move out and leave more room. I can buy those wonderful things at the antique stores, you know the ones that make you screech to a stop and say "Oh man, my grandmother had one of those, why did I give it away, I ought to have another one!" Geez, it's a never ending cycle. Ahh, an Etsy store is a beautiful thing!…
