Donna Harding's Third Life

After high school I joined the military in 1979 and retired in 2002. I also attended undergraduate, graduate and law school while in the military so I am used to working hard and staying focused. I started my own law firm in 2004 and have continued my practice. In 2009 I bought a "cabin" retirement home and that's when it started.

While I have always loved antiques and have owned some pieces for 30 years, I was not a collector until I found auctions in north Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina. I began collecting in a serious way and subconsciously I suppose I was preparing for this day. After the auctions people would ask me where my shop was. I didn't realize I did have one, just not open to the public. My daughter told me about Etsy years ago and I opened an account in 2012 but it was not until April 2014 because I decided to open my shop.

Everything I bought over the last several years are things that I love and could see in my home. Each piece spoke to me. I didn't research, I just followed my heart. Now my inventory is huge. Between my business being slow and the massive inventory I have I decided to start selling. I research each piece I list to find out and provide as much information as I can. I love the history of the items..

My shop is about the continuity of vintage items. I have items that are rustic, mid century, and regular vintage décor. I don't collect lavish items, I want to be able to imagine the item in the eventual place it will live and be comfortable. I will continue to collect things like McCoy, vintage kitchen items, etc., but I'm learning about my collection of items and sending them off to a new home.

I can only I hope that each item brings as much joy to the buyer as it did to me when I bought it.

My cabin has become my shop. I have antiques placed in every crook and cranny and is a great inspiration. It also provides great back settings for the things I sell. I've had to learn about photography and how to get that perfect picture when it's reduced to a 2" by 2" picture and I am still learning but I wake up every day with something to look forward to and isn't that what life should be about. I hope you appreciate the items I have and if you are looking for a specific item in the context of my products, message me, I probably have it or can find it in my travels.

    I have always collected antiques as far back as I remember. Everything I offer comes from either my private collection or from auctions of items coming from estates. I've retired from 2 careers and am now enjoying what I love the most.

Frequently asked questions
Can you ship by parcel select / ground services

Extra large or heavy items can be shipped by parcel select or ground services, all other items will be shipped Priority Mail when cost is comparable. Parcel select is much harder on the items so the package has to be extra durable. I ensure all my items. Please convo me if you have a question about a specific item.
