The hunt for vintage and antique treasures.

I am a hunter and collector of treasures. It started with my first miniature porcelain dog figurine, a collie I named - Lassie, of course. Thereafter, I searched for as many miniature dog figurines as I could find. Over the years, I amassed hundreds.

After the dog figurines, my passion turned to beads. Then seashells. At age 15, during my first trip to Europe, I began to collect jewelry from each country I visited. I decided jewelry was the perfect souvenir; small, easily transported, and something that would remind me of my travels every time I wore it.

As an adult, I have been fortunate to visit many interesting places, such as New Zealand, Slovakia, and Tunisia. Everywhere I go, I search for little treasures.

Three years ago, I started collecting vintage and antique clothing buttons. Buttons have become my latest passion, and in the near future will most likely be the dominant items in my shop.

But who knows what I might discover next?!

    I think my love of vintage items started when I was allowed to play with my mother's costume jewelry. Instead of wearing the jewelry myself, I would adorn my numerous stuffed animals with sparkly rhinestone earrings, necklaces and bracelets.

Most of the items I sell are either from the estates of my grandparents, or from my travels to countries such as Slovakia, the UK, and France. I will describe the origin, age and details of each item to the best of my ability.
