About

Many of my vintage items are from my relatives, things found in trunks in the attic from years gone by. When you have so many things and no room, I feel it is better to share them than have then boxed up and back in the attic. My children don't seem to be appreciative of these things, so I am hoping to find folks who truly love vintage and antique items and will display them with pride.

I have been sewing since I was 7, love to cook and garden, study herbs, essential oils and healing plants and herbs. I was a soapmaker for 15 years, SoapMeister.com, and had a brick and mortar as well as internet websites, with sales around the globe. My favorite customer was from Dubai, United Arab Emirates. If you are out there Vladimir, drop me a note! Fun business, met a lot of wonderful people, made thousands and thousands of bars of soap and never lost the thrill of dumping the mold to see which soap creation was the best.

Spent many years as a Master Preserver and Master Gardener with the Washington State University Cooperative Extension service, volunteering my time assisting clients with home preservation of food products and gardening questions and problems. I also spent 20+ years with the local Chamber of Commerce holiday bazaar, SummerFest and other community oriented activities. Two friends and I created a local farmer's market in our town, and I am currently on City Council, and I volunteer every Friday at the Wenatchee Habitat for Humanity Store. As you can see, I do a lot of volunteering.
