About

43 Years Later

I opened my shop after having shopped on Etsy for some time. I've created and sold found object art since the age of 7, I just never thought about really showing my work to a wider audience than my small home town outside of Northern Chicago.
I have a love for vintage items, and especially handmade vintage items.
My assistant and I found three plates while salvaging that were stamped Royal Copenhagen. I didn't know much about them (and thought they were hideous!), but recognized the B&G on the boxes they came in. I bought them all for under $1.00.
I researched them later and found that to some people they were worth up to $200 each. I listed them on Etsy and in a few weeks , I earned my first $100 dollars here. My customer who bought them, put me on the look out for more items. That's how it began for us. It feels like we are really serving.
