This duvet is absolutely breathtaking. I couldn't be happier. The shop owner was delightful to work with and had the items lovingly packaged.

A Passion and Need Transformed into a Business
I've always loved the charm and character of vintage items. Originally I started buying "antiques" out of need when I moved into my first apartment many years ago. My friends and family called my finds "used junk" (LOL) - but they just didn't see what I saw. Of course, times have now changed and junk is no longer a bad word and is now considered as "junque". So, I've stuck with it all these years and now that I've moved across the country and am retired I'm doing it fulltime as a business on Etsy.
I mostly handle everything myself - with some occasional assistance from family. Specifically, my mom (proud age of 88 and a 5-year cancer survivor) has fantastic sewing talent and has been the source for the custom pillows and ottomans that I've offered. And not to forget my "big brother" who has a critical engineers eye and can be counted on to honestly critique my creations when asked.......and sometimes even when not asked (LOL). He also assists if I need some minor furniture repairs. But I selfishly leave the best parts of the business for myself - the shopping, the painting and the creating.
I'm so thrilled that others love my items enough to purchase them. I can't imagine a better compliment, or more of a validation of my personal passion, and it just spurs me on to find more "stuff" and to create more vintage treasures. My biggest problem is letting go of my finds. I want to keep everything for myself - but alas, have to limit myself to what will fit into my already overcrowded home.
