About

The curation and adoration of vintage design.

Vintage items evoke memories and feelings of a bygone era. Whether or not you remember the time period- each piece has a story to tell.
A first date.
A favorite dress.
The craftsman who embossed his worker number with pride into a handmade leather bag.
The way your posture changes in a structured coat. Or a nipped waist.
I've been wearing vintage clothing from the time I had any say in the matter. Buying- okay, hoarding vintage has always been a passion.
The hunt is my favorite part- spotting the hand finished seams on a rack of mass- produced clothing. The perfectly broken- in leather satchel hanging among disposable sacks.

While not always in bullet bras and crinolines, I am always wearing several well made vintage pieces from any era, though my personal style favors the 1960s.

I was able to turn my passion for vintage into a career when I decided to leave a job I had never liked. Since 2001, I have sourced and sold vintage clothing, accessories and housewares on various venues, both in person and online. And I can't imagine doing anything else.

My faithful assistants include Sadie, a Lab, Boarder Collie mix who I found when en route to a second-hand store in 2003.
Her pal, George, was adopted in 2007 from the local SPCA.
His kitten, Captain Vladimir Sparklypants, is a rescue from Allentown, PA.
We live in Annapolis, MD in a 1961 ranch that was originally owned by the son of the owner of the local Coca- Cola distribution center. Until very recently, our fuse box had a "Coke machine" listing, though the machine was gone long before we moved in.
Before moving the the 'burbs, I lived in and around Washington, DC.

I have two other Etsy shops:
http://www.RetroHommeVintage.com is a Men's only vintage store,
http://www.ObjectRetro.com is a vintage housewares store with a focus on Mid- Century barware and design. Occasional antiques and kitsch items sneak in.

Private viewings and trunk shows are available for clients in the greater DC/ Baltimore Metro area. I also buy vintage! Feel free to message me for details or with any questions you may have. I'm reasonably friendly. Honest!

Other hobbies include quaffing elaborate gin- based cocktails, reading highly scientific (and considered by some, gross) writings about genetics and medical oddities, reading Sci- Fi, and watching really bad movies.

    Quality vintage is my passion. The thrill of the hunt, the obsessive curation, and matching pieces with happy homes has been my goal since 2001. Every piece is chosen for quality and condition- ready for continuing decades of enjoyment.
