My Antique & Vintage Etsy Store is a dream come true.

My life has always been full of vintage and antique pieces and collectors. I grew up loving vintage items, and ever since I was a teenager wanted my own antique store. The years I have successfully had my online shop, show that I am dedicated to having a reputable store, and providing excellent customer service. Not only am I a dealer, I am also a collector and decorator just like you. I love living with vintage and antique items, and treat every piece as if it was going to live with me.

I take the time, that you do not have, to hunt down and restore display worthy antique
and vintage treasures. When they are ready to mail each is wrapped up nice and tight to be shipped safely. Shopping at my place means you can relax and enjoy yourself, knowing each item has been treated with care.

Information about our items is accurate from experience and research. Growing up with a family who enjoyed knowing about the background behind their antique and vintage pieces taught me how important correct information is. This experience also gave me a lot of vintage and antique knowledge. When I have an item that I am not as familiar with it is thoroughly researched in order to provide the most accurate information possible. When you shop at my place you know you are getting exactly what you see and read. You often also get some extra details about the history and provenance just for fun.

Stop by my blog for vintage fun and information. Also visit me at these places for even more fun:

Lulu & Lolie interviewed me about my vintage plate collection, and it was so much fun.
