About

I have a love affair with all things vintage and I honestly cannot remember a day when I didn't feel this way. I grew up and still live in Northern New Jersey right outside NYC. I am a first generation citizen and grew up surrounded by really cool parents and grandparents who not only appreciated the look and quality of older items, but celebrated them by having them throughout our home. And we truly have things from all over the world! It was completely normal for me to see a 100 year old African ivory statue next to antique bed coverings handmade by my grandmother from Brasil and brought here when they came to the US.

Living in this area has only fueled my fire! I am surrounded by old beauty in every way: gorgeous architecture, museums, and of course all the clothing, jewelry, and decor that we are lucky to have access to living here. Anytime I want a fantastic old dress to wear to a…

Living in this area has only fueled my fire! I am surrounded by old beauty in every way: gorgeous architecture, museums, and of course all the clothing, jewelry, and decor that we are lucky to have access to living here. Anytime I want a fantastic old dress to wear to a party or a fun, unique gift I have more than enough options!

Vintage is also fun! I have a great time finding really cool looking items that just make me smile and smile. I never know what I am going to find and people never know what they are going to get from me for their birthday!

I wanted to find a way to bring this passion into more of my life, so in 1998 I decided to begin selling some of my finds online. Although I have been buying on etsy since 2007, in 2009 I decided to make the move to etsy as my only online selling venue as well. What a treat it has been! I have met some of the nicest, coolest, and most creative people ever (which is even starting to bring out MY creativity!) My ride has only just begun and I am loving every minute of it!
