My expertise covers many areas, which is why my antique shop is very eclectic. I attended my first auction when I was five years old and bought my first treasure, a trunk, for the outrageously high price of a quarter. My father told me that no one dared to bid against me (I was adorable, precocious, and quite certain of myself; besides I glared at would be bidders). As I got older my keen eye for detail became ingrained. I learned from experts, my parents were antique bounty hunters.
My mother filled our house with wonderful furnishings and my father, with books and papers -
My professional career has taken me from coast to coast and subsequently being a lone female traveler, I used my spare time to hunt antiques and discover history from one end of the country to the other. I still search for "lost" objects and bits of buried history or forgotten “treasures” (at auctions, estate sales, flea markets, friends houses, garage sales, thrift stores and more). I have endless tons of books on every item imaginable that is an antique or could be one day. But what I enjoy most is the story behind the piece when I can as well as finding a new home where it will continue its journey.
