About

My name is Maureen and I've been a lifelong vintage shopper. Back then we called it junking/schlepping/thrifting and lots of other names but today I'm thrilled to be able to participate in a site like Etsy!
We used to ask my mom - back in the 60s, "Why can't we have new furniture like all our friends?"
She'd blink and look at us and say something brilliant like, "Just wait. Someday you'll understand."
Someday is here and I do understand and I've passed the tradition on to my daughters; one of whom you may know as LustNLux here on Etsy.

I'm very proud of the successful shop she runs here on Etsy and I'm very proud of her!

Every day - first thing I do is check her shop, her finds, her sales, her testimonials and I continue to do it all day long, obsessively, compulsively.

Because of this I thought I'd get in on the fun - I hope she doesn't mind - and go in a different direction than her beautiful clothing and lingerie - I want to do vintage "darts".

Do you know what a "dart" is?

A dart is an "objet d'art". That's fancy french for "object of art".
Wiktionary describes it as "A work of art with some artistic merit/An artwork exhibited for the purposes of decoration or the reflection of social status."

That's me and my darts - works of art (as in "You're some work of art.")
;)
I hope you enjoy my shop.

P.S. The picture is of Maureen O'Hara. She was beautiful, wasn't she?
