Incurable collector of 20th century modern art and design

The store began out of necessity to thin the collection. I moved from a suburban area in Tucson to the city of Minneapolis.
Because inner city bungalows are much smaller than suburban ranch homes, it was by necessity I started Prairie Decorative Arts to sell a good portion of my collection.

As an incurable collector I also kept evolving and buying. So every new item that comes home requires another treasure be sold.

A collection is a living reflection of its owner. In order to maintain its vitality it must change. My Etsy store helps me facilitate that change by provided an outlet for items I can no longer display at home.

I am a collector selling to collectors. I buy what I like whenever or wherever I find it. It's honestly no more complex than that. :-)

If after some number of weeks, months or years I run out of room or my taste moves in a different direction then I list it here.

So should you choose to buy one thing or become a regular customer, I feel in some way we must be alike or even connected.

My passion is infectious and I feed off the joy of both collecting and selling to fellow collectors on Etsy.
