Hi! I'm Mary, a Single Mom and Vintage Dealer, based in Houston, TX. I began selling on Ebay full time in 2016 as a way to support my family and stay home with my son. Since opening an Ebay store, I started renting space in a vintage co op, and also opened a store front that I closed mid March, due to COVID. My professional background is in art, costuming and fashion design. I have a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts that I earned at The School of Visual Arts, NYC, in 2004. I've always loved collecting vintage, and second hand treasures. A natural born scavenger. I never thought I would end up selling vintage as a full time job, but it all started because of personal hardships, and lack of child care. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to make it, and now I truly love what I do, and feel blessed to be able to share my passion for vintage with the world. You can shop my collection on Ebay, Etsy, or in person at Retropolis, (Houston's oldest vintage co op of 18+ years), 373 W. 19th St. Houston, TX 77008.
