Her taste has influenced me throughout my childhood. After leaving the socialist East Germany in 1985, I lost pretty much everything I have ever owned, including many special items handed to me by my grandmother. I will never be able to replace most of the jewelry, books, and furniture. Some time ago, I started going to antique stores and second hand stores and came across many beautiful objects that awakened memories of my beloved grandmother. These memories inspired me to start collecting vintage costume jewelry and porcelain and anything else that is old and gorgeous. Having said that, I also enjoy the hunt for a great find, the beauty of an old and previously loved item, and the thrill of finding out who made it and how old it is. (Read more)
