Booth Description:
Colorful. Eclectic. Granny gone wild,

How'd you get into the business?:
There was a flea market that I could walk to when I was growing up. I started saving my allowance and babysitting money to buy dishes, jewelry, stationary and other goodies. I started haggling, and thrifting at age 6, and I still enjoy it just as much now as I did then. My parents collect antiques, so we were always thrifting and antiquing on the weekends.

 

What's been your best find?:
A huge alpaca wool wall hanging from Peru for $5!

What do you collect?
Stangl pottery, textiles, and anything made of yarn. Really whatever catches my eye.

What are you always looking for?
Oil paintings of people I don't know.
