Highly recommend this shop. : -}"

About

Artist, Preschool teacher, etsy shop owner,

....I started my etsy shop with vintage books and objects, thanks to the inspiration of a couple of mentors. One was my grandfather who used to browse estate sales of homes here in NJ and salvage every possible antiquarian book he could find before it got thrown out. Up to the attic with those books, on to the bookcases, plop them on the coffee tables...he loved them all~ reading them, collecting and displaying them. The bug caught on and before you know it his grandkids loved old books as much as him.
....Now on to Emma, my grandfather's wife, who had impeccable taste in antiques and all things old and lovely...this, too, became one of those things that gets passed on through osmosis I think. You just kind of absorb the feeling of beautiful objects that tell a story, and it never quite leaves you....
~ I decided to open my shop with my grandparents in mind, as well as a way to supplement my income . As an artist, and preschool teacher, having an shop has been the perfect balance to my endeavors. Wearing a few hats doesn't bother me, it makes for an interesting life, pursuing passions I love. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit.
