Welcome to the eclectic past.

I don’t think my life has ever lacked a love for history. I grew up hiking in old cemeteries, identifying transferware in antique shops, and wishing I could don a fedora and run away to Egypt.

Creating an Etsy shop was an incredibly obvious and natural step in my life, so in the spring of 2009, “CARPEBELLUS” was born. With the help of my mother, Andrea, I’ve had lots of fun and success selling unique antique and vintage items online.

I’m currently working on my Masters in Museum Studies. Like my Etsy shop, I hope my education will be a way to impart history’s beauty to everyone.
