Hello Vintage Lovers,

I loved vintage when vintage wasn't cool (to paraphrase the song). Yes Dear Collectors there was a time when "old" was tossed out. But time has now made the 1960's and 70's vintage.

I am lucky to live in Petaluma, Calif. which has many Victorians of all sizes, bungalows and cottages mixed with ranch-style and modern homes. I am fortunate to live in a home built in 1939 as my favorite period is the late 30's to the late 40's. It even has it's original stove from 1940. And I am so very lucky to own a 1948 Plymouth 4-door sedan which was my only means of transportation when I was working in the 80's and 90's. Now that I am retired, she doesn't get out as much which makes her cranky!

I've collected all manner of stuff since the 1960's and feel it is now time to release my loved ones to you…

When you receive a purchase from me, you may be surprised to find it is like a gift. When I was a child we were not poor, but we weren't middle class either. Purchases were very dear. When you purchased something from even the most practical of stores (lingerie shops, household goods shops), your purchase was wrapped in tissue, placed in a box and many times tied with string. This made the purchase important to me and valued. The extra wrapping of your purchase from me, adds to the padding for a secure delivery. I use recycled material (you'd be surprised what you can find at estate and yard sales) and material from the Dollar Store. Besides you deserve a gift!

Here's to no sharp corners, lovely patina and beauty in design even if it's utilitarian - in other words, Vintage!!!
