Queen of the Universe Vintage

About 10 years ago, I fell in love with vintage while perusing my great aunt's closet. My Aunt Earline, an elementary teacher, was a collector who saved and labeled everything. She kept and labeled the Whiting and Davis metal purse she carried at high school graduation in 1949 as well as the cotton day dresses she wore while relaxing on Saturdays.

Because of her careful recording of the history accompanying each item, I came to appreciate the life and story of a vintage piece.

Her love of beautiful old things became my inheritance. When she died, I was given many of the items from her home.

Now I travel with my husband and other family members, seeking out beautiful vintage clothing and housewares that provide comfort and joy -- and maybe a few good memories --for my customers.
