About

Being brought up in a family of master tailors and dressmakers, i fell in love with cloth early in life. In the antique world i have been a dealer of vintage clothing, linens, and quilts for the past 15 years. As the years have gone by, i have found my own niche in my family's legacy, that is, restoring the beautiful old pieces i have found. The restoration process is fascinating and fulfilling for me. In my shop you will find lovely textiles that have been "rescued" and brought back to their original form. To my surprise and delight, I have lately enjoyed extending this process to wood, paper, ceramics, paintings. However, my special area of interest will always be textiles, everything from from Americana to Italian lace and linens. Of all the mediums, I have found that textiles tell the unique story that women have in history.
