Why do I collect? That's easy... because it's so much fun! Ever since I can remember I have been going to flea markets, antique shops, yard sales, you name it. Wherever I could find some sort of interesting treasure or cool piece of junk! I love driving around in search of new places or revisiting my favorite spots. I come from a family of collectors and have lived amongst antiques and collectibles my whole life. I have a passion for decorating especially with things that I find in my travels or even things found in the trash... which by the way can be some of the best stuff! But for those who share the same passion, I don't have to tell you... you all know what fun it is and how addicting it can be! Here I will share my collections, interesting finds, decorating tips, photos, projects, friends collections and thoughts and whatever else I may find along the way.


It's Been A While!

I'm off to a slow start this season!
I guess the strange weather had something to do with it!
Anyway, great weather this weekend and so
happy to back out there flea marketing!
Stopped by Blue Ridge Flea Market in Saylorsburg, PA on Saturday.
Tons of good stuff!!

And then Jake's Flea Market in Barto, PA 
on Sunday which was in full swing!


Little Shop on Staten Island

It was so great to visit friends Wilma & Victor
at their cute little shop on Staten Island. 
New Niks Old Naks is filled with goodies!
Art, glass, housewares, lamps and more!
You never know what you will find!

Something for everyone! 
Wilma gave me a sneak peek of some new stuff
that she will putting out for spring. Here's a hint: POTTERY!
Check it out: 497 Jewett Avenue, Staten Island, NY.
