ItsNewAgain's Profile

About

It all began when I was 6 years old. My mother inherited her Great Grandmother's Lace Edge collection and together as a family we would travel to New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, & Upstate New York in a tireless search to complete every last bit of the collection. A year later my father left for two weeks to attend the Mendenhall School of Auctioneering in North Carolina & upon his return my mother, brother, father & I diligently began building our own antique & collectibles auction business. A few years later we were a full fledged auction company with over 5,000 customers. 20 years later we continue to have auctions today & are very lucky to have so many dedicated customers. Many of whom remember me selling my drawings at auctions for a penny (I've always been one to have my own business, even at age 6!).

I grew up in antique shops, auction halls & spent many weekends in old cluttered houses helping my parents package up estates for auction. In the process I've fallen in love with all things collectible, historic, & nostalgic. A few of my many obsessions are Jadite, Fire King glass, cake plates, chinese propaganda posters, and old botany prints. You will not find any of those items here as I will keep them all myself (sorry!)

I am a photographer by day and a baker, collector, and auction dweller by night. I bring to you here those items that have style, function, form, and in many ways are timeless. Its new again! Enjoy!

I also operate an adorable cupcake shop: http://thecupcakemint.etsy.com
