Jo Dorado-Clair's Profile
Thanks for stopping by my shop! For the past 20+ years, I have been an avid (some might say "rabid") collector of retro and funky items, especially anything mid-century (50s, 60s, 70s) or Art Deco. Seeing as I don't live in a McMansion, I have run out of space so I am doing some house cleaning. My loss is your gain.
I adore vintage items and often wish I could hear the story of an item's history...if only they could talk! In today's disposable society and mass consumption, things are just not made the way they used to be. Some of the items I find are 50+ years old...and, save for a little wear and tear, have managed to survive in remarkable condition. To me, a little chip or crack only adds character to an item. It tells me the item was used and most likely well-loved. How many of today's things bought at the big box stores will be around 30, 40 or 50 years from now?…
