I'm a midwestern gal with an eye for great vintage, and I am delighted to share my finds with you. As a kid, I dreamed of being an archaeologist. Then as a teen I wanted to be a department store buyer. I am now combining both careers - digging in thrift stores and estate sales as the head buyer for my Etsy department store!

I live in a wonderful cosmopolitan college town with my hubby and two school aged sons. I work part time at the local university, arranging my schedule so that I can maximize estate sale and thrift store shopping. I have been a thrift store shopper since the 1980s and when I think of the stuff I used to see back then that I passed on (what I called B-52s purses --long, skinny pastel bags, 1950s-60s party dresses and printed skirts and atomic retro home decor)...sigh!

What became of all that stuff? I am still trying to find it! I opened my shop because I find more cool vintage things than I know what to do with and wanted to share the love.

When I am not thrifting or doing Etsy stuff or working at my "real" job, I seem to spend a lot of time doing laundry and looking for the missing sock.

Then I'd have more time for garage sales and trips to Goodwill.
