Stray Dogs and Stray Antiques

I started selling antiques to pick up a little money after I lost my 25-year editing job. I fell in love immediately with the telltale signs of old wood, old hardware, old crazed porcelain, lamps with big paddle switches, and so forth. And i found that by learning to repair things i could find really amazing antiques at prices i could afford and savings i could pass on to customers. So a lot of what I do is restoration. And my philosophy--being a dog lover--is that rescuing an antique from neglect and the resultant deterioration that occurs is a lot like rescuing a pup from the pound--once he/she gets to your house, grows comfortable, and realizes life has just improved, you have a whole new dog on your hands. The same is true of a venerable antique.

I want to tell prospective customers that my prices are not cheap because I sell quality items. I search high and low for them and if they need repairs I do them carefully and with love. You will--hopefully--always get what you see and read about on my site. I often have the experience where something I purchase disappoints me. I never want my customers to have that experience and I think I can confidently say that I have stayed in business this long because I have secured a reputation for imparting quality antiques. I hope you will feel this if you purchase something from me. I want you to be happy.

    I am a life-long writer who, after a 25-year editing career, decided to make a change. Antiques turned out to be the perfect choice for me. This is the greatest job I've ever had. And I love selling on Etsy. The people are so great.

Thanks so much for visiting my store. I believe sites like etsy are critical in this day and age of the big box store. We are giving crafts people and vintage dealers a place to peddle their wares. Wonderful! I try to find the best stuff I can at reasonable prices.
