Our featured Etsy treasury for today is curated by Debra Boudreau, from the Etsy shop BoudreauCollection, located in Pasadena, CA.
What do you do if, after a lifelong search, you find, and marry, the love of your life. Then, shortly after the wedding, you discover ... The Basement.
If you're Debra Boudreau, you open the Etsy shop BoudreauCollection.
"Shortly after the wedding he mentioned that, carefully packed and stored beneath his hundred-year-old Craftsman house, was a treasure trove. He and his late wife had spent years traveling, searching and collecting in pursuit of their shared dream of opening an antique store. They never got around to opening that store but, judging by that basement, they certainly could have!
"As a museum executive, a history buff - and, yes, a fellow collector - I set about the task of opening those basement doors, freeing those wonderful treasures from storage and sending them back out into the world.
That is what you’ll find in the BoudreauCollection (along with some antiques of my own) as I endeavor to combine the households of two lifelong collectors. The task has proven to be both daunting and a great deal of fun. Please take a look!"
The BoudreauCollection is a magnificently curated variety of items. Debra has brought together everything from tramp art, to elegant Czech glass. Inside the BoudreauCollection, you will even find Victorian items living happily side-by-side with exceptional modern pieces.
Here is just a small sampling of the items you will find when you visit BoudreauCollection.
