Beautiful antique portfolio of The Architectural orders of the Greeks and Romans. There are 100 one sided loose book plates in this portfolio all suitable for framing! Decorators don't miss out on this one! Less than $1 per print at just $89 for all!
Perfect little glass display cabinet. At your request it will come with the wasp nest for an additional small fee or maybe you already have your own natural curiosity to fill its space. It's up to you!

About

Old Souls, New Lives.....

The man running the estate sale inquires, "What exactly are you going to do with that ancient electrical cord?" "I think it would make a fabulous necklace!", I reply.
Another asks the same about an old brass outdoor faucet handle. "Now this will be perfect in my assembled candlestick creation!"

ALTERED ARCHEOLOGY is where unexpected elements from the past are reborn into curious bodily adornments and functioning art for the home. Only the more unusual or hard to find vintage pieces are offered here....

I swim through seas of everyday household banality at yard sales, estate sales and flea markets before encountering that one amazing old item. I create in my studio on a daily basis. I breathe new life into the old and unwanted and find new adoring fans for the treasures of the past.

    I can't believe it's been 2 decades since I was bitten by the vintage bug. I've owned a brick and mortar shop and have been a mid century furniture middleman, but this, my virtual vintage wonder world is where I've settled and become the happiest.

    My boy my boy! He's 6 years old and has already developed a smashing sense of humor.
