About

Me and my vintage life...

I love vintage, just about everything about anything vintage! When my daughter entered kindergarten in 2002 I decided to turn my love of retro and vintage into a business I could run while being a full-time mom. I started my Internet shop Foxglove Cottage, catering to reproduction retro and vintage finds. I later opened my two Etsy shops. The idea of using pieces of the past to create a unique home is the springboard for each of my shops, with fabric stores and estate sales being a constant source of creative inspiration.

My grandmother was a dressmaker and I am blessed to have and use some of her sewing pieces - her sewing cabinet, notions, thimbles. I would give just about anything for a day to sit and sew with her, taking in all of her knowledge. Our home is a tiny, 1950's SoCal house so my work space is also our living space, consisting of a vintage desk near the porch window for my sewing machine and a library case tucked behind the door in our front room for fabrics, trims, patterns and ribbons. I have files of pictures and ideas for a sewing room if we ever move to a bigger house - preferably an old one we can restore closer to the beach. :)

Most of my estate sale finds eventually make it to either my Foxglove Cottage shop or one of my two Etsy shops. A friend asked what I look for at estate sales and I had a hard time coming up with a succinct answer. How do I explain that while I do have a few things in mind every time I enter a house - aprons, linens, vintage sewing or cookbooks - the thrill is to simply stand there and take in all of the treasures of someone's life, hoping to find that one truly unique piece. The "I'll know it when I see it" philosophy is strong during my estate sale visits. Once I'm ready to list, I photograph them either on the enamel pull-out of our vintage kitchen cupboard or on the tea cart overlooking the back porch. Within each description I try to give a tidbit of their history or a fun way the item could be used in the home or as a gift.

This is my wish for you: May you be reminded of sweet memories as you browse through vintage finds & retro accessories. Enjoy!

    I love vintage and hate to see pieces of anyone's past be discarded. Finding vintage pieces to share and sewing using retro fabrics is the most perfect way to spend my days!
