About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Antiques Dealer
Location San Mateo, CA, United States
Introduction Antiques – Just the mere word makes me giddy with excitement. I love to hunt for fabulous old pieces, and I thrive on finding a small vintage bauble or bit. Anything from Victorian buttons to mid-century rhinestones gives me joy~ Even if it’s chippy and/or broken, it can still find a place in both my shop and my heart. I own Flotsam & Jetsam, a whimsical "shop" found monthly (starting March 2013) at the Alameda Antiques Faire.
