I am a retired Jill of all trades. I joined the Navy in 1974 and left in 1976. It was still Vietnam era and I am a Vietnam Veteran. After a corporate stint during the 70's and 80's in the field of import/export, I took a big risk and opened my own brick and mortar shop in 1989. I had a vintage clothing, antiques and accessories store. I learned how to build my own website in 1990 and learned to take photos of my displays and my products. I had a blast and made money at the same time. I also worked in Real Estate sales for many years.
These days, I have 3 Etsy shops. Photography, Jewelry Design and Vintage Clothing. I enjoy nature, birds, decorating, sewing, photography, vintage textiles, travel, fashion, health and diet, friends and family. Most of all I love my dog Hazel, a Cavachon. I am born and raised in New England and I don't forsee myself ever leaving.
