This dress is so far beyond gorgeous that I'm speechless. Truly a work of art, for its time or ours. Stunning!! Thank you so much!

My name is Michelle, owner of Secret Eyes Only. I sell mid-century ,art deco and modernist decor and vintage fashion and treasures.
I'm based in Cleveland Ohio, I travel all over the United States and Europe searching for items to fill my shop. Since I love to travel this job is also an escape for me. It gives me the opportunity to go on road trips and adventures as much as possible. I look forward to working each day — it’s exciting. As my husband is a professional musician we are lucky to be able to combine our professions and travel together and explore the world.
As a lifelong collector and artist, I have an eye for aesthetics and a fascination with beauty and a passion for history. My background is owning an art gallery in the Netherlands and making art. I studied graphic design and art .I love interior design, styling and product photography.
When I find a vintage item that I'm considering for my shop, I check the condition thoroughly and only buy items that I consider beautiful and unique. Often treasures are being displayed in my home and I enjoy them as well until they move on to their new home.
After close inspection (and if necessary a good clean) the piece is ready to be photographed, I use my entire house in search of the perfect natural light and backdrop styling. It's important to show each object’s true color and appearance. A lot of work and thought goes into the styling of each photo and into the overall look of my shop.
My Etsy shop has given me the opportunity to do what I love.
I hope to continue to grow my collection and my business while presenting customers with pieces from other times.
