About

Every bird needs wings to fly... be it Peacock or Magpie.

Like the Magpie, I have a long history of collecting pretty and interesting things. This started with my parents who are both avid antique and vintage collectors. I would go to dusty flea markets on the East Coast with my mom, where treasures, trinkets and trash where all heaped together on tables and piled on tarps or blankets spread on the ground. I was fascinated by these beautiful bits of history. Everything held mystery and appeal; from rhinestone brooches to rusty tool boxes and tiny toy cars, each item had a story to tell and inspired my imagination. I found that not only could I find wonderful things that were perfect as they were, but I saw in the worn and broken objects a promise of something more with a little creativity and love. So began my adventures in collecting and creating. My broad interests have allowed me to find all sorts of treasures, as well as dabbling in dollhouse miniature, jewelry and accessory making. It seemed only natural to extend my passion into selling, so others can find joy and inspiration in these treasures.
