There have been some amazing estate sales in my neck of the woods lately.
Don’t these tiny stoneware vases look good displayed together? They’re all available now in the shop.

Seeing the Sacred in All Things

First, a bit about the name of my shop. I was sorting through a box of vintage postcards, train tickets and other ephemera one day when I began to think about how these items weren't just discarded pieces of paper, but sacred little things: stories, memories and expressions of love. A few days later when I decided to open a vintage Etsy shop, the words "tiny sacred things" kept running through my mind, and I had a name for my store, even though I sell sacred things of all sizes.

On weekends I go to estate sales and thrift shops looking for old, unusual and adorable items. I love rusty whatnots, found objects, frayed edges and threadbare cotton.

My love of vintage continues to grow. When I need something new for my own home, like cereal bowls or a table lamp, I can't bring myself to go to a department store and buy it new knowing that there are so many beautiful and well crafted vintage ones waiting to find a new home.

Thank you for visiting. Please convo me if you have any questions or just want to chat.
