I recently have been contacted by several customers who used to visit my storefront in Norwood because they are downsizing their living spaces or moving to other areas and they need to part with some of their beloved belongings.  I do appreciate that I have been called to purchase these items.  I am happy to be remembered after all these years and have enjoyed catching up on each others lives.  That human connection is something i do miss now that most of my sales are online. The Internet is an ever-changing creature and I do my best to keep up with the times.  I must admit that promoting my business on Twitter and Facebook is not my favorite pastime, but it certainly does present my merchandise to a world market. Sometimes it is challenging to figure out what the best hash-tag is, and it is interesting to see what some hash-tags bring up in my searches.  It’s never a dull moment! Enjoy the summer and be happy. Take care, Nancy

About Me

I have been in the antiques business for more than 30 years now and look forward to many more. After 11 years as an auction manager, I decided to open my own shop and ended up in Norwood, Massachusetts. For close to 20 years I had a shop in Norwood where I offered a variety of goods from local estates.   I dabbled with online sales over those years, but my main focus was the brick and mortar shop.  In time I saw that my business was shifting to the Internet, just like many other retail businesses, so I decided to go with the times and concentrate my time there. Since 2014 I have been selling mostly via the Internet and have expanded to four online shops.  They are on eBay, Ruby Lane, and two are on Etsy.  I find the Internet allows me to offer my merchandise to the world which is an exciting reality.  I continue to learn the tastes of different regions and appreciate that my merchandise is appreciated in so many places.
