About

My Two Great Passions

As a lifelong collector, I started my estate shop in 2009. I look for the unique, higher end pieces, but also have some retro and vintage......I attend many invitational estate sales, private collections, and warehouse sales. My grandmother started me when I was a little girl. The first thing I collected was the Dresden porcelain ballet dancers. We used to go to the Connecticut shore for the day and visit all the great shops. One of my favorites was in someones' barn! We would have lunch at the Stratford on Avon, where I would see some celebrities, that were there, acting in a play. I was fascinated by the stories and the histories of the pieces..I often include an FYI in my descriptions, so that you will know something of the history.I hope you will enjoy!
