Your style in three words:

beautiful, French, curated


On your junking bucket list:

Any time a trip to Europe, the East Coast or Round Top, TX,  is on our buying calendar we are really excited!

You knew you were a junker when…

… Really? Forever… I can’t remember a time I wasn’t buying, fixing and selling either a piece of clothing or a piece of furniture.

Best all-time junking find:

We fall in love with each and every French piece we find!


You wish you would never have parted with…

… almost anything French with that wonderful French blue patina

Bringing to the Bonanza:

vintage French shutters, copper pans and cookware and European enamel pitchers. Vintage zinc and enamel farm buckets, vintage kitchen scales and one- of-a-kind cupboards. Vintage rolling bar carts and hutches. Lovely reupholstered French chairs, stools and ottomans. We are also bringing our handmade leather weekender bags created from vintage European textiles, our one-of-a-kind toddler dresses, plus antique linen and our handmade pillows created from vintage linen, quilts and antique vestments. And it wouldn’t be a show without our hand-poured, lead-free soy candles in spring and summer scents!

You never junk without…

…a hat, my daughter, a cart, cash and Mimosas!


In your garage: cars or junk?

one car, multiple pieces to paint…shelves of beautifully curated junk!

No one would ever guess you…

… have four children, four grandchildren. I work with one daughter and hope to work with the other! Doesn’t get better then that!

Your junking holy grail:

an abandoned French chateau stocked to the brim with vintage French treasures…all for sale and we are the only ones who showed up!



Junking makes you feel…

… excited, anxious, excited… and a little bit dusty!





Come chase your OWN vintage treasures FEB 17-18 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds!
