Some of the most stunning and unique treasures to me are the ones that have previously belonged to someone else’s history and tell a story.
After spending countless hours talking about the things I discover in my travels, I wanted to create a quality online resource for people seeking information about all things antique and vintage. This blog has been running since 2014 and has over 200 posts for you to read. It was only natural I would eventually open a vintage and secondhand store. It took me many years to find a special place and I recently (Mid December 2018) opened a store called, Piece and Quiet right in the heart of Russell, Ontario.
My love of things of the past came at a young age after spending countless hours antique & vintage household item hunting with my Father. I quickly started to appreciate the rarity of the objects I found, interesting aesthetics and the story behind where they derived from. I have a passion to uncover timeless pieces and enjoy re-purposing them to give them new life.
Over the past few years my heart has also become invested in not only home décor but clothing and accessories as well. My home is fitted with all the gems I would come across and a true reflection of me for many years now it was only fitting that my style would follow the same pattern. My closet is its own fashion statement representative of years gone by. Statement pieces, Made in Canada finds and quality fabric and textures is what I seek out and bring into the store.
It is about the chase, the sentimental value and the feeling.
Hope you enjoy this blog and can come visit me at the shop real soon!
