My love for old items began about 17 years ago. My first antique I bought was a small old brass lamp with crystals that I bought in my neighborhood and I still have it. My passion for old things has grown into a small local business now located in Temperance, Michigan.
My past history includes being in 3 antique malls, one boutique shop in Tecumseh, at Consign It Interiors in Toledo and in 2016 I was co-founder of a monthly market in Riga, Michigan. I am always on the hunt for unique vintage/antique furniture and items, sometimes things are in pieces or missing parts but I find joy in putting them back together, sometimes giving it new life with a fresh coat of paint and if it’s beyond saving, I will salvage the good parts and re-purpose them into something useful.
Having this business lets me continue to be creative, gain historical knowledge and meet some great people. I particularly love hearing stories (even though sometimes sad) and hearing people reminisce about something they’ve seen in my store. Mostly, I am happy to pass something old to someone new!
