your favorite vintage piece impossible to say, I love all vintage

Connie and family have a special little pet named Bosco, a boxer.
He likes to be picked up like a child when you come home and hug you.
He will very emotional and will sit and cry if you ignore him.

If you were stranded on an island...what 5 things would you
take with you? My 5 kids, maybe not what you meant, but they
are my pride and joy and the only thing that matters to me.
Now I asked...what would you take if the kids were a given :)
here is that answer...

Survival??? Mascara,lipstick, good book, coffee, iced tea with
lemon, I'd be set! Now, I'm wondering what that says about
me??? I started drinking coffee at age 14 on a camping trip,
of course with lots of cream and sugar. I now drink it black.
Ice tea was served at every meal. I was a bookworm growing up
and still love to read but don't have the time. And makeup?
Well, can't live without that! I sold cosmetics for several
years and can never have enough!!

How long have you been business?
I started in 1993 by selling in antique malls.

How long have you sold on line?
2 1/2 years, but it seems longer than that!

what prompted you to sell online? to generate more income.

How many sites to you sell on and give the links :
My Trinkets and Treasures
(being switched to a new domain with my etsy
shop name Antiques Galore Gal)

Bewitching Hollow

Antiques Galore Gal

Vintage Tinsel

Antiques Galore Gal

Do you sell off line in an antique or craft shop?
I started in 1993 by selling in antique malls.
At one time I was in 5 different ones, 2 of which were 1
hour away in different directions from my home.
I opened up a brick and mortar in Kimmswick, Missouri
almost 8 years ago. Kimmswick is a historical town with
90 residents that sits on the banks of the mighty
Mississippi river. It is about 30" south of St. Louis.

Anything else you would like us to know : )
I am a proud member of the etsy cssteam.
