VinLizzy....a vintage love story <3
Many years ago, I met the love of my life, Gary. Together we enjoy the entire process of finding, buying, fixing, refinishing, creating, and selling. It is very rewarding taking an old worn out piece of furniture and bring it back to a beautiful useful piece. We will also take vintage pieces that are no longer desirable and paint or reinvent the item to bring it back to life. Once completed, we love doing shows at local shops and flea markets.
He has encouraged me to do the same with the things I enjoy collecting. I have collected and sold antique and vintage jewelry and rosaries, and other religious items. I especially love antique and unique perfume bottles (miniatures are my favorites). I enjoy researching an item to find out the history or purpose of each items. Sometimes this is close to impossible even with all the information on the internet, I still refer to all of my reference books I have collected over the last 20 years. Also one of the best resources is other shop owners I have met in our community, who are very knowledgeable and eager to help.
