About

I am recent to the love of vintage. It all started when my husband practically dragged me to a flea market a year ago. At first, I saw a lot of "junk", but then a pretty vintage hat caught my eye. Well, one thing led to another, and now I have a virtual shop selling vintage items on etsy! I would love to have an actual shop, in a rose covered cottage, in a quaint town somewhere.....maybe someday:)

Hats may have been my first love, but I have to admit that vintage purses have stolen my heart! Formal, evening or daytime, beaded, satin, mesh or vinyl, black, white, silver, gold, pink.....I love a vintage purse!

And don't get me started on jewelry or gloves! Oh, how I wish we could return to the days when ladies wore hats and gloves!

Vintage glassware is my latest discovery - how fun to find pretty things from days…

Vintage glassware is my latest discovery - how fun to find pretty things from days gone by and give them a new life.

The best part of my vintage conversion is that my 14 year old daughter, Kyla, has joined me! She is learning along with me and we have fun going to yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores together.

Recently I was bitten by a "creative bug" and started making jewelry incorporating vintage elements like earrings and brooches. I also "up-cycle" vintage purses. I have enjoyed this process a great deal. So, I decided to open another shop on Etsy with my pretty creations. It is called, Gilligan's Island (because it is populated with "castaways" hoping to be rescued. You can find it here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/GilligansIsland?ref=pr_shop

I hope you enjoy browsing through my pretty things. Thank you for visiting and come back soon.
