Sandy Millman's Profile

About

It has been my lifelong JOY to rescue, restore and rejuvenate pretty much aything. Guess I've been green before such a term existed. Why? Due to a limited budget; the satisfaction of making something new out of something old, and for the thrill of the hunt. After having been a dedicated textile collector over a number of years, I dove into my stash, choosing a few favorite bits to create handbags, totebags, scarves and pillows as gifts for friends and family. They proved to be popular and ultimately led to a small cottage aka basement business named Yours Truly. I've spent the last decade selling at boutiques, art/craft shows, museum gift shops, summer markets, trunk shows and personal home parties. For me, it's not only been a source of supporting two fashion minded daughters, but at the same time fulfilling my passion and JOY of working with bits and pieces of the past.

Short story even…

Short story even longer...while on the road, I found that customers were equally fond of the vintage 'props' that I used to support my Yours Truly products; i.e., luggage, hat boxes, mirrors, books and clothing. Hence, I have created a vintage themed shop which supports not only a 'green' lifestyle but a truly unique one. You'll find tableware, barware, linens, books, fashions, jewelry and many other items to add charm, character and JOY to any lifestyle. Thanks for stopping!
