Hello, welcome to my website. I'm so happy you have found me! I come from a long line of treasure seekers! I recall standing at farm auctions & estate sales with my parents as a girl. Those were long, but fun mid-west days, we usually got some great things! My parents sold antiques and my sister and I swore when we grew up, that we would never have any of that old stuff! Funny how things turn out! I grew up in Northern Illinois and I moved into the city of Chicago to get my degree in design. I loaded up my Uhaul, not just with art supplies, but it was a trailer filled with the comforts of times past. Looking back, I laugh at all the things I brought for one tiny room. But even then, it was about the look, and being inspired by my surroundings.
I moved to the west coast in the early 1990's and started to frequent an abundance of area flea markets and auctions. For 16 years I have been designing and selling to customers who love a comfortable elegance. My travels bring me to unique and fun locations across the United States, where I am always in search of that one treasure, that I will build a room or display around.
Open my style file, and you will see that comfortable elegance is a way of life for me. At my own antique shows, that I do a few times a year, this easy look is brought to customers in midstate California. I invite you to shop my online store, where you will find my boutique filled with all of the things I love most...a collection of handpicked items for your home, clothing that I love and my handcrafted one-of-a-kind jewelry line from a fabulous Southern Californian artisian.
If you're in the Los Angeles area and would like to visit my "Comfortable Elegance" you can find my designs at The Three Speckled Hens Antique Shows in Paso Robles CA & other shows in the southern California area.
Thank you so much for stopping by. ~Victoria
