Collection of vintage handbags in my shop. Only one is in my private collection, and not for sale. It is so much fun to carry vintage!
Collection of Retro Cuff Links, Tie Tacks, Clips, and Tie Bars. We women love to see a well-dressed man!
Vintage Sugar Barrel upcycled for use in bathroom to display toiletries. Would also look nice holding a plant on a covered porch. The doily is another item for sale in my shop as a table runner. The cross stitched design is at both ends.

About

It's all about vintage!

I have a love for antique and vintage passed down to me from 2 generations. When I was a little girl, I was allowed to carefully pick up my aunt's vintage flapper style beaded purses, which were stored in an old trunk. (and I still have them) She died in 1914, and with those, I also treasure a picture of my grandfather as a doctor making house calls in his horse and buggy. Oh my goodness, I shouldn't talk about dates! But I love all my treasures from that period.

So now my favorite thing to do is hunt for vintage treasures at yard and estate sales. I always buy what I like, and I have an eye for the odd, even if I don't know what it is. I remember when I was first starting out, I bought a silverplate burner for a chafing dish, not knowing what it was. When I went to pay for it, the estate sale person chuckled saying, "what are you buying it for if you don't know what it is???" I don't know, but that's what I often do!

Anyway, some of the treasures DO find their way to my Etsy shop. I particularly like old wooden boxes, vintage purses, old postcards, and vintage vanity items. I wouldn't say I'm a girly girl, but I like all that stuff and more.

Hope you'll pull up a chair and browse awhile!
