As fall approaches I am gearing up for my busy season and am looking to offer some great gift and holiday items for you in my online stores.  I am always looking to purchase quality items year round, but at this time of the year I am especially eager. So feel free to get in touch if you are looking to downsize. I had a great summer with many visits with family and friends, but as the days grow shorter I am happy to be inside at my laptop.  I’m finding that the market is strong for jewelry, porcelain, and some glassware while the demand for antique furniture has waned.  But as seen throughout time, things go in cycles so perhaps the beautiful Victorian, Arts & Crafts, and Deco furniture will be back in style in the future.  For now I am happy to be boxing the small things.

About Me

I have been in the antiques business for more than 35 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.
