About

Saving Old South Florida, One Vintage Piece @ a Time

I moved to South Florida in 2005 from the Mississippi Gulf Coast. All of my ceramic art equipment was put away into storage because of a lack of studio space. As every artist knows, you must create for creation's sake. So, I started scouring the many flea markets., thrift stores, estate sales and yard sales here for vintage jewelry.
I was on a mission to deconstruct & reconstruct these vintage pieces into new vintage marvels. There seemed to be an influx of really nice items due to the wealth that migrates here every year. I have never seen so many sweaters in thrift stores, in such a hot climate...it's actually quite funny.
Then, I began to notice the other items. The clothing, scarves, tableware and such. At the same time, my husbands interest came into play as well. He was bidding on storage units and liked the bigger ticket items. I, on the other hand, found the smaller treasures amongst the bigger ones. And on it went. Now, this may bring to mind the word "hoarders", but we are very organized in our storage of items and absolutely love the idea of recycling, upcycling, reuseing and repurposing all items that cannot be used "as is". He sells his bigger ticket items through different venues and I, well, I have......Screaming Cockatoo!!!
And that is another story. Didn't know I was a bird girl. Fell into guardianship of my umbrella cockatoo, Zazou, by chance in 2006. Since then, 3 other exotic birds and a hen have joined the family. Two of them are umbrella cockatoos and both of them are screamers...its just how they express themselves...I say go fo it!
I have recently moved back to my hometown of Ocean Springs Mississippi. Nestled on the upper Gulf coast, it is a quaint artist town that is one hour away from Mobile Alabama and
1 1/2 away from New Orleans or as we call it down here...NOLA!! Its harder to find the types of treasures i love so i have to travel a bit to find things but I get the opportunity to do that often.
I love being able to do what I do with Screaming Cockatoo and hope to save my special finds and have others relish the treasures I find!

    I scour the plethora of estate sales & thrift stores of South Florida to find the most interesting, exquisite vintage finds. I truly enjoy this process of treasure hunting, knowing that someone will ultimately possess & appreciate them!!!

Shipping
I can add insurance if you request it before you purchase so that I can add it into total.
Although I have shipping rates set, if you are located out of the United States, or would like to know a shipping charge from a specific zip code then please convo me first with your shipping address, before making your purchase, so that I can get the exact shipping costs to ship it your way. I will then set the shipping amount for the item you are interested in purchasing so that you can continue one with your purchase.
Please be aware that in some countries customs does not allow for shipping of some items...please check with your local shipping regulations before you purchase!

Also, with some items, I cannot fit more than one item into a priority mail package so I do not have a shipping price for shipping "with another item". If you want order more than one item, please convo me first and depending on the items you have purchased, I will choose the best size of package for shipping and then post the exact same price that I will have to pay. Be sure and check with me prior to clicking on the purchase button and I will reserve your purchases. I do not try to make money off of shipping charges.

I make every attempt to fully represent the item I am selling through the photographs and description. Please ask questions BEFORE you make a purchase if you are not sure about an item. I would rather answer many questions before you make the purchase rather than have an issue afterwards!!!
