About

From One To Another

As a child, I grew up in a home full of antiques.
Both of my parents have a great love for old things.
My mom would "slam on the brakes" for a yard sale and my dad would come to a "screeching halt" for a flea market.
I have now turned into both of them and I love it!

My weekends are spent traveling in search of all things old.
The Back Shak is filled with childhood memories and ones in the making.

I am just fascinated with the history of each piece.
As I'm looking at it, cleaning it or photographing it,
I'm wondering:
How many families were served their dinner on this?
How many trips has this old suitcase been on?
How many things did he fix with this?
How many guests used these glasses?
How many people gazed at this picture?
How many kids have played with this?

I work full time as a zoo keeper, and have done so for almost 20 years now.
I have had the pleasure of working with a wide variety of species.
It's an awesome job that's always exciting with a twist of danger.
However, as I age, I'm starting to realize I can not do this job forever.

My love for vintage items and antiques will be my next stepping stone through life.
I hope to open a cute little shop in a quaint little town someday.
Until then, I continue to spend every spare moment on my weekends working in my Etsy shop.
I love absolutely everything about it.
