About

I've been dealing in antiques and vintage items for the past 20 or so years,and have been a collector for twice as long. I have worked in the family business-a handcraft gallery for over 30 years,and had a gallery of my own.I have been marrying/refinishing/reworking/recycling/upcycling /loving objects for as long as I can remember. I love good design,thoughtful execution,and eloquent materials. A gypsy at heart,I am absolutely mad about jewelry,and like the Magpie,am attracted to bright shiny,sparkly things (My personal collection of jewelry ,is vast). I live with antique and vintage things- I like the history, and the patina of time. I am proud to be the temporary guardian of these wonderful things,and relish the opportunity to pass on the guardianship to others.
