Thanks for visiting. I am a semi-retired Seattle-ite turned curator and treasure seeker. My 4 Legged business partner, Toto, and I source from here in the Pacific Northwest to find wonderful pieces Worldwide that we love and know you will too. I have a passion for all things vintage and unique. Here you will find items that were crafted with Quality and Character. On Silver: I love silver. It must be taken care of to remain vibrant, though Patina and Tarnish can accentuate some silver pieces. I hand polish all my items with a non-abrasive polish and cloth and you can see this in the results. Shortcut polishing processes can damage the piece, and remove accentuating tarnish. When I polish, I will leave tarnish and patina in certain areas where I find it accentuates the piece. I sometimes (rarely) leave a piece unpolished - otherwise, as the most reflective known element in the universe - I believe most silver pieces look best with some shine!
