About TheGoldJellybean

On Etsy since 2012

Sharing my adventures in treasure hunting.

I am Shaleah Soliven, the curator and owner of The Gold Jellybean - a collection of vintage home decor. I started my shop as a place to share my love, and obsession, for finding great vintage treasures.

I live in Chicago, but thrift wherever my travels take me. I am very nostalgic, and I appreciate the design and quality of items of yesteryear. I studied Interior Design, and went on to work as a Hospitality Designer at Gensler. I am now a stay at home mom, blogger, and residential designer. I have always dreamt of opening my own store, and still plan to do so one day, but for now Etsy has allowed me to realize this dream through the web.

I love discovering unique items that tell a story. Items that were once well loved, and are now in need of a new home. Everything I select fits with my own style and design aesthetic. If I don't love it, I don't buy it. Every now and then I have a hard time parting with some of my finds, and I must admit I have a few items on display in my home that were originally intended for my store. Maybe they'll make it in the shop one of these days!

In addition to thrifting, I also love to create. Currently I have been making hand sewn ragdolls and insect magnets. I plan to add more handmade items to my shop in the near future. So stay tuned!

I feel so fortunate to be able to continue working as a designer, and now entrepreneur. It has allowed me to share my passion with others while still staying home with my daughter. I have also been able to share my love for design with her. She inspires me in everything I do, and is currently learning to thirft!
