LL Pyles' Profile
What can be better than unearthing a long-forgotten treasure, holding it up to the light, learning its history -- and making it available for the next person to enjoy?
New life for old treasures -- that's the thing.
My taste is eclectic. I love things with character and a little wear, things that tell a story or offer a glimpse of a moment in time. Old photos, postcards, books and magazines (especially the ads!) are wonderful for that. I particularly enjoy small things that I can hold in my hand and wonder who else held it in their hand. I love humble things, workaday tools, everyday items from by-gone eras. Show me the patina.
I am also on Etsy as lisepyles, as owner of SavvyCoffer, where I sell handmade items made by my clever alsmost-daughter-in-law, and a few by myself…
