About

Hidden Treasure

I started my shop because I enjoy shopping on etsy and online, almost as much as I like tromping around the city looking for 'buried' treasure.

Often, in both cases, a glorious item can be found quite by accident - I love the serendipity of 'stumbling' over an unexpected gem.

It's not so much that an item may be valuable, but that it strikes some chord with me - it's old, it's interesting, weird, beautiful, unique or historical. I think that's what is fascinating about old things - they have a story to tell.

I often have to ferret out information on a found object, and sometimes discover a complex history associated with something rather ordinary. Research is just another 'treasure hunt', really.

Oh, and the little fellow on my banner? He is a four legged 'thing' made of wood - one of the many weird little things I've acquired over the years - I don't know what he is - a toy perhaps? Frankly, I don't care much what he is, but that he IS.

Enjoy the hunt!

    Panda is a bit of a vintage find - she's a rescue dog that came from the house of an animal hoarder.
