About

I have long been a collector of vintage things, especially from the 1930s-1950s. As a child I had many collections including rocks, Barbie clothes, record albums, swizzle sticks, and miniature dogs. As I got older it turned into vintage clothing, beaded handbags, rhinestone jewelry and more record albums.

I love the challenge of the hunt---in my case, estate sales and thrift shops. Finding something old and unique at a good price is a thrill like nothing else--and no blood is spilled.

It doesn't bother me if things are shabby or worn- although I may add a little embellishing to make them sparkle again. I love the history behind old objects. It's mysterious.

I have been a mural painter, art teacher, art literacy curriculum writer and more, but now, re-making and upcycling ruined old things into something new and curating vintage collections are what I like to do the most. Sometimes.....I even share! Visit my other Etsy shop aVelvetLeaf.etsy.com full of vintage, upcycled, hand painted and collaged treasures featuring cocktail culture, retro fashion, cozy home items and sacred things.

    Owner, Curator

    I am an artist, collector and curator of vintage treasures who lives in Portland, Oregon. I like to use pre-owned or upcycled materials in my art whenever I can. I tend to have a lot of fun and like to spread it around!
