Milla Fury's Profile
I (RetroGirl) grew up working in an antiques shop with my grandmother since I was 12. I dusted endless shelves of glassware, worked behind the counter and listened to my grandmother's stories of where things came from. Millefiori was always a favorite. It's Italian art glass. It means a thousand flowers. My name comes from the phonetic spelling - the way I heard so many Americans pronounce it.
I love rescuing the past and preserving it for the future. Can't help it. Thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets, dumpsters...I love them all. FutureBoy is a very patient and easy-going guy, but he would prefer that I sold the items and not just collected them. Since we met 15 years ago, we've lived in 3 states, 4 cities, with several moves in between. It's time to let go. So here I am.
