On Etsy since 2008

I'm Susan, a designer, collector, stylist and maker who works and plays in my home studio: a happy oasis brimming with all of my favorite things.

I live in a cozy cottage in the seaside village of Rowayton, CT with my husband, John. We have two grown children and two grand puppies. I am a designer, collector, stylist and maker who works and plays in my home studio: a happy oasis brimming with all of my favorite things.

I was born in Cleveland, OH to entrepreneurial, immigrant parents. From an early age, I loved to create things. When I grew up, I became a graphic designer and I worked in New York City before founding my own design company. Twenty-four years later, I was ready to try something new…

Collecting and selling antiques had long been my passion and I dreamed of having a shop of my own. I was inspired by the women of the 1920s whose search for independence led them to create tea rooms right in their living rooms during Prohibition. Many borrowed the abbreviated “T” from the temperance campaign and called themselves T-houses. I liked the historical significance of the “T” and hoped to use it in my shop’s name someday.

That day came in 2003 when T-Party Antiques and Tea Room opened its doors in an 1890 farmhouse in Darien, CT. For five memorable years, my partners and I provided our loyal patrons with afternoon tea and treats along with an eclectic array of wares. Today, the T-Party spirit lives on in my Etsy shop, where I sell antique, vintage and handmade goods for the home.

In my studio, I am surrounded by cheery things that never fail to elevate my mood. Providing a welcome escape from the complications of the modern day, I like to think about who owned these items decades ago. And when they sell and are sent off to new owners, I am pleased that they will be enjoyed once again — a beautiful connection of past and present.
