Welcome!

It's so nice to (virtually) meet you. Thanks for taking a peek inside my shop.

I confess, I love rust AND rhinestones. I also love fur and the smell of mothballs but that is another story….
I can spend hours in an antique store. I love anything and everything old, especially things that can be worn. When I’m looking at a limp, dingy, lifeless Edwardian tea skirt I can sense the excitement of the girl who wore it for the first time. So I buy it and wash it four times before it’s really clean. Then I spend the better part of 3 days ironing hundreds of knife pleats and as it returns to the breathtaking little confection it was when new I feel an amazing sense of wonder.

And then I think, isn't there something....SHINY... somewhere around here to wear with it?

Actually...

Yes!
I think there just might be a rather LARGE selection of vintage jewelry, LOL!

Curl up in your chair, browse around a bit. If you don’t find something for yourself there is a good chance you will find the perfect gift for someone special.

I’ll even gift wrap it for you. Just ask.

Thank you for coming by,
