"Many years ago, I began collecting depression glass. In my hunts, I came across other items which I knew could be sold for a profit, thus a dealer was born. It soon became an addiction and I set up at flea markets, shows, and rented booths in antique malls. I joined the world of ecommerce in 1998. My love of sewing patterns stems from my mother, who was the best seamstress I've ever known. I used to sit and look through her boxes of patterns and she would tell me the year she made a certain dress. However, my shop isn't limited to patterns only - I sell many other collectibles."
