Come Be Inspired


Where do you find your treasures and collections?
Every treasure is hand picked and found in Iowa and the Midwest.

Years of accumulation from estate sales, tag sales, friends, family and word of mouth contribute to the collections. Each one has been loved by me, the Four Sisters and it's previous owners.

Everything is washed and hand dried where possible. Most linens I tend to ruin so I leave those up to the new owner.
I will always let you know of any imperfections, spots, stains, or repairs.
I am always interested in buying however I do not sell for others.

I love to inspire others by my displays and unique treasures.

I have been in business for over 20 years first starting out in local shops in Marion and Mt. Vernon, Iowa and then owning my own brick and mortar shop for 3 years. 
I no longer have a physical shop but continue with, Facebook and Etsy. 
I am known for old-school values, treating your fairly including fair prices. If you are looking for something special or want to add to your own collections, don't hesitate to contact me. I probably have it or can find it for you. I have a very eclectic style and tend to buy treasures that call to me.
Thank you so much for stopping by
