Elizabeth Elliott's Profile
I've always loved the search. It's in my blood.
Born in 1974 to a Dutch school teacher and Irish antiques dealer, I was practically raised in auction barns and junk shops. My parents had an antique shop attached to our house so I played early witness to the arrival and departure of every object that we'd found and that had been painstakingly brought back to life. I helped with what feels like hundreds of antiques shows all over the province - from simple to black tie. Always getting a buzz when peering into dealer's booths to get a glimpse of what they had for sale.
I grew up in a restored Georgian home surrounded by old and beautiful things constantly being curated by my father, who has never failed to volunteer the complete history and origin of each. I find comfort in this.
I love walking into dusty shops and country barns, not knowing exactly what I'll find…
