Growing up in the beautiful valleys of rural Pennsylvania taught me to value the character of old things.

My shop is a product of these lessons. I hand select vintage and antique treasures that have stood the test of time and are still going strong. I examine each item by hand and describe its character, as well as wear and tear. Once the items find the owner they have been waiting for I pack them up for shipping with reused materials whenever possible. I believe in giving second life to boxes, newspapers, bubble wrap, shopping bags and other materials that are clean and still capable of cradling your treasure on its way to you.

I have met so many warm-hearted and inspiring people since joining the Etsy community. I am always happy to hear from you, so please don’t hesitate to send your questions my way. This is a great community and I am glad you found your way to my corner of it.

I thank you for your time and wish you all the best in your journey,
Jessamy
