The Thrill of the Hunt!
Hi There! I've been scouring flea markets, garage and estate sales (aka junkin') for years and love vintage and old items. The whisper of an imprint left from previous owners still gives me a feeling of nostalgia and warms my heart.
Years ago my quest was for Dachshund items for myself and I ended up collecting all kinds of dog collectibles. I started selling them (NOT my cherished Doxies!) at dog shows and antique markets. Fast forward - I've always had a love for lighting and jewelry and my hunt turned in that direction - Present - I'm now restoring and revising old lighting, especially chandeliers, and collecting and selling vintage jewelry. I've found my creative side and love to reuse/upcycle the less than perfect pieces of old jewelry that I've acquired and make hand mirrors and other gifts for family. I'm now offering them for sale in my Etsy shop and monthly antique market. You'll find other items in my shop as well, things that I think are cool and speak to me. I hope you'll find something there that speaks to you too!
I'm always up to the thrill of the hunt! There's still another treasure just waiting to be found somewhere!
