About

I am a third generation antique dealer. My grandmother loved antiques and had her own store in the north woods of Minnesota long before there was an antique shop in every town. She was independent and hard working. She mastered everything that she did and slaved hard for pennies.

My mother was molded after her mother yet she worked hard with a "midas touch" you might say. She entered into the antique world on the cusp of its' popularity and was one of the first antique dealers in Stillwater Minnesota which is rated one of the top antique towns in the country. As a housewife she started by finding next to free (or sometimes free) pieces of furniture and would magically turn them into showroom, front window items. As for me, I am a combination of my matriarchs and simply strive to someday have a generation below me show the same appreciation for my hard work and integrity as I have for the women who paved these paths before me.
