Chef by day, Glass Hunter Extraordinaire by night! I've been collecting and selling glass for almost 10 years. Originally from England, I now reside in Washington State and love hunting for stunning pieces for my shops.
On a personal level, I collect Tangerine Blenko and British pressed glass. I love folk music and sea shanties, silver Celtic jewelry, and walks on the beach.
Favorite item in your shop:
Glass Eye Studio Paperweight, Millennium Art Glass Egg. We all celebrated the Millennium in style and the Glass Eye Studio of Seattle Washington produced this stunning art glass egg shaped paperweight. Remember your Millennium festivities with joy every time you lay eyes on this beauty.
I began buying and selling glass online after receiving some free tickets to an antique show and sale. When I got home I found a book on depression glass had followed me home. I was already an avid garage sailor and had an Anchor Hocking EAPC punch set sitting around at home, so I decided to sell it. The rest, as they say, is history and here I am almost 10 years later.
