I have been a picker\collector\decorator my whole life. I grew up in an eccentric family of artists and collectors. I studied Interior Design- but never finished my degree, as being a mom of two amazing children always seemed to close the door on my college pursuit. I know what inspires and motivates me. I love the stuff. I love finding the stuff! It’s as easy as that! I have been fortunate enough to have learned so much over the past 30 something years since my first pick at a swap meet in Tucson, Arizona when I was 11 years old! I am an experienced dealer and collector and love making my personal space unique, inviting and special. In this day and age- people want to be expressive and they are finding solace in doing it themselves. Let us help you!

Sometimes getting creative and a bit messy while restoring Grandma’s old dresser, or fixing up a table from a local thrift store is just what you need to fulfill your heart and take a break from the stresses of everyday life!
