reclaimed ~ repurposed ~ salvaged collections



Heading to the cabin weekends and summers while I was growing up in Minnesota gave me an appreciation for both big city and small town scenes. There's something special for me watching the Minneapolis skyline appear OR sitting on the end of the dock watching the loons. Having a horse at the lake as a young girl with the freedom to just ride the woods was an added blessing.

The journey in a relocation to Colorado changed the views, but I am totally drawn to the beauty of nature and the opportunity to explore a new vista in the mountains.

My taste has always gravitated toward anything old with a history. Farm signage to butter churns to wooden garden rakes ... THUS the precious junk I've been collecting and creating for many years. Starting a business in the occasional market concept was a good fit. Open one weekend per month allowed me time to be creative with my finds, share them with people and find new treasures for the next month --always keeping it fresh and new.
From outdoor festivals to fabulous storefronts in Minnesota . . .
