Our featured Etsy treasury for today is curated by Pat, from the Etsy shop LakesideCottage, located in the Roanoke, VA, area.
Pat has filled LakesideCottage with a curated collection of vintage and antique items that defies a single label.
How does Pat describe her collection at LakesideCottage?
"Rustic. Refined. Shabby. Chic. Industrial, Mechanical. Mid-century. Mod. Fine China. Pottery. Primitive. Antique. Vintage."
Pat came to Etsy after a career as a senior executive of a nonprofit that honors children wounded by broken homes, absent parents, homelessness, ignorance, poverty, violence, crime, and abuse.
Much like in Pat's career, serving to help those who might otherwise be forgotten, LakesideCottage is a haven for items from our past that might be lost or forgotten.
"I have filled my homes with antiques and vintage items for years and nothing gives me more pleasure than to rescue an item and bring it back to life. What some might consider junk, I consider part of our history. What some consider old, I consider a jewel of craftsmanship, difficult to find in a disposable society. Antiques and vintage items have a history. Listen. Learn. Honor. Respect. Pass it on."
Here is just a small sampling of the items you will find when you visit LakesideCottage.
