About

Preserving Treasures from Yesterday

When I was growing up our home was filled with antiques. We never took a vacation or a road trip without stopping at every antique shop along the way. My mother taught me that the old is usually better than the new. I inherited her love for antiques and later developed a great love for mid-century and retro. As a baby boomer, I treasure the memories evoked when I see items that were once such a part of everyday life.

It wasn't until my husband and I put together and worked an estate sale that I began doing research on vintage. It was at that time that I found Etsy. I was so excited to find a venue for selling vintage that in 2010 I opened my first Etsy shop.

I love everything about selling vintage. Nothing is more fun than the treasure hunt itself. All week I look forward to Saturday when my husband and I leave home early and head for Starbucks before heading for the estate and yard sales. He begins his search in the basement of each house and I begin in the kitchen. Later that afternoon we head home with our treasures and I begin the process of cleaning them. I begin the photo shoot the first of the week and try to list as many items as I can.

My inspiration comes from my customers. I love getting personal notes from customers, letting me know how much they love an item they purchased. Many of my customers are drawn to an item because they remember a similar item from their past. Just yesterday I received a message from a customer who said the music box he purchased was identical to one his great grandmother had given him as a child. Those kinds of stories make my day!

To me, selling vintage is all about preserving treasures from yesterday and making them available to those who will truly treasure them.

    I have been in love with vintage as long as I can remember. When I was a little girl, nothing was more fun than going to my grandparents' house and going through drawers and closets to see what old treasure I might find. The love continues...
