I was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, and moved to the US with my family over 40 years ago, leaving all our possessions behind. The loss of the tangible objects from our collective past, inevitably drew me to old things—that’s all we had in our house. Furniture, housewares, even clothes, were repaired, recycled and reused. Talk about being “green”!
I became a collector, creating a "new past" out of the unique and the old. I spent my adult life in the business world but lived for weekend auctions my husband and I attended, which became my training ground in all things antique and collectible.
At Alegria Collection you may find a connection to your own past, something to bring you joy! And that’s what Alegria Collection is all about—"alegria" means "joy" in Spanish!
