What started your interest in antiques and/or collecting? Is there anything in particular that you collect?

My family has always had an interest in history and collecting antiques. Some of my earliest memories were of going to estate sales, antique stores, historical homes, and ghost towns! Even my grandparents collected antiques during the 1930’s and 40’s. Their treasured pieces dated back to the 1880’s! I love to collect vintage clothing and jewelry. It seems so much more unique and glamorous.

Can you tell us about your favorite item in the shop, currently and why it is your favorite?

My favorite piece currently at Uncommon Objects is this beautiful blue mirrored vanity.

It was hand carved, possibly in Mexico, during the 1920’s or 1930’s, and is one of the largest pieces of colored mirror we have ever seen at the shop. I love the underwater quality of the reflection, it makes me feel like a mermaid princess!

Thanks Kitty, and thank you all for reading!
