Now retired, I recently moved to Bali, Indonesia. From here I have access to wonderful vintage items available throughout Asia.

My approach to business has always been to treat you as I would want to be treated. My goal is to ensure that you will always be totally satisfied with your purchase and the service I offer.

I have now been on Etsy for a few years. My feedback record will give you a good idea of how my customers feel about their buying experiences.

So please relax, sit back and enjoy your journey through my offerings..menikmati!
