Since they hold a history, a past life, I love collecting vintage items of all kinds, especially American made pieces. While getting my fine arts degree, I began searching for objects to express ideas. Soon I was grabbing other cool stuff from the shelves, like a vintage diner mug for my morning coffee that somehow made it more fun.
I see beauty in American household items from the early to mid century. I enjoy connecting people to these things. I have a fondness for the colors, designs and the quality of items made back then. Restaurant ware is my favorite to hunt for and collect. I sell it, keep it and sometimes give it away. I'm responsible for addicting others to this sport too.
