"Collect things that you love, that are authentic to you, and your house becomes your story"~Erin Flett
Vintage is my Passion
Nothing makes me happier than to hunt for vintage items that have been passed down generations and preserved. I know the excitement of finding a piece that is nostalgic or that you know will fit perfectly with the esthetic of your home. I hope you find these pieces in my shop.
HELLO AND WELCOME
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
I guess if I had to describe myself, I'd say I'm a little bit girly and a lot of tom boy. I grew up on a farm in Oklahoma and spent my youth riding horses, fishing and loving the land. My love for all things vintage, antique, loved and worn came from my parents. We would spend all day Saturday at the flea market and sometimes at auctions. I watched and learned from my parents love of antique furniture, farm implements, worn paper mache rabbits and china tablescape decor.
I began collecting various treasures of my own in my teens and twenties and hauled all of it to Texas when I graduated college, to teach. On the weekends, I would haunt garage sales, estate sales and antique/flea markets. It was in Texas that I met my husband (a.k.a. a minamalist and appreciator of mid century modern) After a couple of children we moved to his home state of Colorado.
It is here, that I found work at several estate sale companies. I attended estate sales frequently so it was an easy transition for me to begin to work at them. It also gave me pleasure to be able to help those in need, sometimes during difficult times in their lives. My background knowledge helped me and I enjoyed researching unfamiliar items. I've also had an antique booth at one time and for several years, I traveled around northern Colorado selling my wares at vintage markets. Eventually, I decided to sell on Etsy and my own website.
