About

Treasure Hunter

since early childhood, whether searching for pretty, unusual rocks in the mountains of colorado while on yearly family camping trips or digging through the sands along the shorelines of lake michigan at 12th street beach in chicago for crinoid fossils, i have always been on the hunt for exquisite, unique, beautiful treasures.

both of my grandmothers inspired my passion for jewelry. i spent many wonderful weekends with my paternal grandmother digging through her treasures and trinkets, mostly avon and costume jewelry, but bedazzling to a young child, nonetheless. often, we would take a cta bus to ford city shopping mall where we would make many wonderful discoveries at woolworth, jcpenney and montgomery wards, as well as in the deep, dark corners of peacock alley. ben franklin, located just down the street from grams, was always an essential stop during our treasure hunt.

i would spend alternating weekends with my maternal grandparents where i admired gram’s beautiful 1950’s diamond cluster rings and pendants. gramp and i would dig through his stash of foreign coins and trinkets that were acquired overseas while he proudly served in the US Army during World War II. as years went by, gram began purchasing many jewelry pieces through qvc and hsn, which i have listed on etsy, along with many more yet to come. though my personal taste differed from gram’s (i prefer art deco and 1930’s/1940’s taxco silver), we shared many sunday afternoons admiring one another’s newly discovered treasures. perhaps it is my aquarian tiger cat-like nature, but sparkly objects ignite my soul, and make my world go round!

in my former life, i had dedicated 27 years to the printing industry working as a prepress troubleshooter, supervisor and variable data programmer employed by several of the largest printing corporations in the nation. i also ran a graphic design and print brokerage business for 17 years. i have been buying and selling online since 1999 with an excellent reputation for selling quality items, as well as exceptional sales and customer service. i am now living my dream of self-employment while fulfilling my passion for the pursuit of vintage treasures.
