Note from shop owner The holidays are coming. And Hurricane Ian has struck. While my home is 6 miles from the Gulf, my home was not harmed, But the majority of the area is destroyed. I am off to wait for my granddaughter's soon-to-be birth and the holidays. See you in January.

WhatnotGems a source of original, and collectible finds

Do you walk into a room and love the feel of antique and vintage items? I do, silver and silver plate have a lovely shine, crystal and china give an elegant feel, art and figurines lend dimension, books and sewing patterns lend a bit of texture. I even display a vintage gown on Tilly, an antique mannequin I found in an old theater, many years ago.
As collections grew, I began to share. As items sell, I share new items, changing the feel of my shop with each addition. If you don't see something ask I may have something. I will continue to add carefully selected original, antique, vintage, collectibles, along with my handmade items. The search goes on.

As my husband's health continues to deteriorate. I have begun limiting my love for vintage. To relax, I concentrate on restoring vintage and antique images. This led me to use all or part of my original art to create ornaments, books, cards, clothing, and more.

I turned my collecting and artistic side to my shop you will never know what you will find. Sewing since I played with thread the day my granny handed me a needle. Art I learned at my grandmother's knee as she painted quilts and other textiles.
