Bestelle Vintage's Profile
Growing up in the Philadelphia area, with access to lots of museums and antique shops, as well as in a family of many collectors, I feel fortunate to have been around many wonderful vintage treasures most of my life. I sell on Etsy as a hobby and as a way of sharing my love of vintage.
Bestelle Vintage is named for my great-aunts, Bessie and Stella, two strong, interesting women, who owned a successful business many decades ago under the same name, Bestelle's. They designed custom lampshades that were hand sewn here in the USA. They represent another era. An era that is preserved today by the efforts of all the wonderful vintage and antiques sellers out there.
By trade, I am a public school teacher. I also have children of my own that keep me very busy…
