So beautiful! I made cloth bookmarks from it and sold out! People specifically said the fabric is what attracted them. Thank you!

How it all began.....

My Mom taught me the art of junkin' at an early age.
She was an elementary art teacher, raising 2 children on a tight budget.
She learned how to stretch a dollar.
Mom was one of the early junkers, before junkin' was so popular.

When Mom was a young Mother, she took my brother and I garage sale-ing. It began there.
I have decorated my home in garage sale finds, most of my life.

My background consists of retail management.
A few "hundred" years ago, I managed the one and only candy store for Jolly Rancher Candy , which was so much fun!
After that, Mom and I opened up a gift store in Denver Co. We sold vintage and up-cycled merchandise, as well as hand made crafts and home decor.
I also was a floral designer, visual coordinator ( creating vignettes in retail stores) and proprietor of a hand painted glassware business.
I'm at full circle, selling vintage finds.
I've enjoyed some interesting and creative jobs....but this one, is becoming my favorite!
I love it!

My Mom would be so happy that I am continuing on with what she thought would be her legacy. Her legacy is soooo much more than junkin'. However, It was her passion and it has become mine.

I enjoy this job.
I love to treasure hunt and find something that brings joy to someone else.
It's the best.

If you have purchased a vintage find from me, thank you for your patronage! I appreciate your business. Greatly.

    I love to treasure hunt! At an early age, my Mom taught me the art of junkin. My home is decorated with gently used , upcycled articles. Junkin' is one of my favorite things to do. Selling treasures is one of my other favorite things to do!
