Treasure hunting!


One of my favorite things to do is take off on a road trip to gather treasures for our business. We specialize in finding the unusual, the unwanted and the miss understood and giving it new life! Recycling is Hot right now, about time, and I have been doing just that for the past 23 years! Started out as a necessity of surviving a new business concept on a shoe string. I didn't have the knowledge or money to but fancy antiques though I had grown up loving old things. Just about every weekend of my childhood was spent at garage sales or flea markets. My mother wasn't in the business of selling, just buying, and she was always very creative and artistic with her finds. Taking something that seems to have served it's life and give it a second chance, with a twist of creativity is exciting and fun. We came home with this wonderful truck load of treasures, we don't always know each pieces destiny from here but I know it will be interesting!
