I have been in the antiques and collectibles market for the past 17 years, and find most of my pieces at local estate sales, auctions, thrift stores, flea markets and the occasional out of town trip. I am happy to provide any extra pictures or information on any items listed, just let me know what you need. As far as what kind of dealer I have been, feel free to check my feedback on Ebay (mtnzookeeper, seller for 16 years) and Etsy (ListedArts owned by mtnzookeeper. 6 years there also). I guarentee all my items, if you are not 100% happy with your piece you may send it back, just let me know in 5 days time. I have had very few returns in the 16 years that I have been selling. I pack well so that your treasure will arrive intact and ready to display, I know the dissapointment of having a special find broken during the shipping process.
My husband and I live in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina with a small menagerie of critters, we have been on our mountian for 17 years now. We try to tread lightly on our land, and provide habitat for our wild neighbors. I am a lisenced Wildlife Rehabilitator and spring is the busy season for orphan babies and birds. Up until recently we kept a small herd of dairy goats, they have since moved off the mountain to real pasture on a small dairy farm in South Carolina. It was hard to let my girls go but was best for them. We still have a few chickens, a rescue lab/Newf cross and several cats from the local shelter, one miniature Dachshund and two standard Dachsunds round out the mix!
