I grew up with my parents both collecting antiques. my mother has always loved and collected items from the Victorian era. my dad has always collected antique gas station and car items.As a kid I would always go antique shopping on the weekends with my parents. I always tell my parents they are to blame for my obsession!Over the years I started to accumulate so much stuff so I decide to start an Etsy shop to sell somethings. then I just fell in love with the idea of spending my free time hunting down cool and unique things!My obsession is the Victorian mourning era. it has always fascinated me that our ancestors took photos of the deceased & created art out of the hair of the deceased!
I am working on filling my Etsy shop with unique, rare and odd items that are at least 30 years old. I search the internet, estate sales, garage sales, antique shops, flea markets and fairs looking for cool things with history!A majority of the items in my shop are victorian era photos and post mortem photography.
One day soon I’d love to open up a store front but I love the online community! you get to reach so many more people! I often have customers tell me that they don’t have antique stores near them so the only way to find unique antiques is online.
