Announcement   Our Grandma's Hope-chest is filled with collectibles, antique and vintage, as well as our own hand made items.

Many of the vintage items we offer might have some imperfections, due to their age, use or the way they were manufactured or made. Additionally, there may be scratches, dings, marks, rust, tarnish, discoloration, wear and more. Glasses sometimes have small imperfections along the rims. These are not chips. Vintage china may have light crazing, which is a sign of its vintage state and authenticity. In some cases minor straw marks or manufacturer's flaw may be present. Some books and magazines may have a slight musty scent, but that will go away when exposed to air for awhile. There may be foxing and discoloration as well. All of these flaws and provenance give the aged pieces charm. Please read the descriptions and view the photographs carefully.

We will make every effort to represent each item as is, picturing or describing any obvious and significant flaws verses damage. We use natural light when photographing an item, but the colors you see on your screen may be slightly different than the true color(s) of the item. We are happy to e-mail additional photographs or answer any questions you may have.

Our Grandma's Gallery is currently inactive. Please visit http://arlene-carmel.artistwebsites.com/ to view and purchase our fine art photography.

Welcome to Our Grandma's Hopechest!

From Arlene: I've been a collector almost all my life. I've always treasured items with a history; wondering who may have owned it and where it has traveled. I've been drawn to books and post cards in particular; the handwritten inscriptions and how the owner must have felt receiving or purchasing the item. Did they treasure it as much as I do? Did they treasure it as much as I hope you will?

From Yakira: As a little girl I loved going through my mother's hope-chest. The ceder lined trunk was filled with delightful treasures like grandpa's love letters to grandma, some of her collectibles, hand embroidered linens, and family pictures. As an adult and mother of five I still draw pleasure from these items. It's tangible history and I love it.

Come along with us on our journey through Our Grandma's Hope-chest.

But wait ~~
We founded a sister store, Our Grandma's Gallery, when we discovered that Arlene's photography and Yakira's fiber art just didn't fit in with the vintage genre of Our Grandma's Hopechest.
