Get to Know

I grew up surrounded by antiques, family heirlooms with interesting stories attached to them and other treasures from days gone by. My mother's side of the family, mostly, and I learned to appreciate the history behind such things early. My father is the one who took me to the flea markets, auctions and antique shops and and called me Patty Ann. My husband and I have been married 38 years, have two grown sons and we all love auctions, flea markets, yard sales, estate sales and interesting trash piles. Our first major "find" together - an old oak pedestal table with claw feet - found it in pieces in the trash. It had many coats of paint and a 1941 newspaper stuck to the last top layer. It was a mess but we could see it's potential. After weeks of hard work, we sold it for $400.00 to an antique dealer. Trash to treasure and money in our pockets? As thrilling to the two of us as knowing that we had saved this beautiful oak table. We were bursting at the seams with vintage guitars and all kinds of cool stuff from the past by the time Ebay came around and started selling online in 1998. For the next 10 years, we earned 100% positive feedback, had a lot of fun creating the listings and following our Ebay auctions. Best of all, we managed to make money - and buy more cool stuff. Thank you for stopping by. I do have lots of vintage treasures and other cool stuff that I will featuring in this studio so keep checking as I find more to list and find homes for. I try to describe each item as accurately as I can and provide clear photos. If I can answer any questions, please ask. Use the "Contact Seller" button. Patty Ann
