My friends captured me for a birthday weekend away in Montreal last November. This photo was taken after a long day of visiting antique shops between Ottawa-Montreal hence the big smile on my face.

Once upon a time there was a girl, she dreamed of one day owning her very own antique shop. Every weekend she would drive to a new small town and marvel at antique establishments while at times thinking to herself, I would do things differently. I would make things a little more about the story behind the piece, make the visit more about the experience and put only one-of-a-kind items on my store shelves.

Over many months she wrote a business plan, purchased a place she could get down to business in [also known as a place to refinish and store her antiques & vintage finds] and started this blog in which you may of only landed on today.

I wanted to share this evening that this is my #101 post. Though I do not have my own store yet, I still have plenty of ideas and plenty of stories to send your way.

I am still pushing towards having my own business on this topic [Antiques & Vintage] whether it be store front or online. Time to keep chugging forward.

Before I head off for the night in lieu of this special post day I thought I would shoot you some quick links to my Top 5 favourite articles to this present day:

1. Old treasures that can be toxic

2. Key Antique Objects Made from Animals and Plants

3. Vintage Style: The Flapper Party Look

4. Second-hand Gift Giving: Is It Okay to Give a Used Gift?

5. The History of Bonnie and Clyde 

“¡Ándale! ¡Ándale! ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba! ¡Epa! ¡Epa! ¡Epa! Yeehaw!”

( I hear that’s Spanish for “Go on! Go on! Up! Up)
