Kathie's Profile

About

I have always been a collector. When the collections began to outgrow my house I became an antiques dealer. Therefore, I could still purchase things, but they did not neccessarily have to all come home with me! I did that for twenty one years but retired from that venture three years ago. Now I sell on Etsy!
What I especially like are vintage, shabby chic, and repurposed items. I'm not above hanging a folk art painting over the early 19th century chest. The yard sale buffet,1920's, in my dining room is treasured along with the two true early 19th century case pieces. It all works for me.
I like to give new life to pieces and use them in different ways. Things that show their age are fine with me. I sure show my age!
