Our Story

This year marked our 24th year in e-commerce selling vintage online on a variety of platforms and marketplaces.

I (Laura) am a long time jewelry collector and silversmith, and began selling vintage and antique jewelry and beads on BITNET via Usenet and Listserv groups, in the early 1990s.

By 1997, we had moved our business to eBay and by 2008, we transitioned once again to Etsy.  Today, we continue to share our love and passion for all things vintage, primarily fashion and jewelry items, via this site.


The Vintage Life

My articles have appeared in a variety of commercial and online publications, and although it's been awhile since I last blogged, you can read some of my writings here.

I look forward to incorporating a blog onto the site, and exploring vintage topics that we can all enjoy.
