Thirty 37 years ago when I was a very young 23 year old, I opened my first store on Thayer Street near RISD and Brown University in Providence RI. I had that store for 14 years until I sold it in 1981. I opened my second store in 1982 on Water Street in Stonington CT, which I kept for 12 years. During this time I also consulted for several Museum Shops, purchasing & merchandising their inventory. After helping to usher my parents through their elder years, I realized I was a born caretaker, so I went back to school and now I work with special needs retired gentlemen whom I love dearly. I have a antiques booth in Stillwater Antiques, in Greenville, RI. I sell “by appointment only” in my lovely little cottage home.
