We are a husband and wife team, married since 1999 and having fun together since 1993. Steve went to the US Coast Guard Academy then served 20 years in various positions and locations in the United States and Puerto Rico. He still keeps a “regulation” hair-cut and continues to have a love for all things nautical. Camille spent the first few years of our marriage as a Coast Guard wife with the first of those years in Alaska. “Just Married, Alaska or Bust!”. Camille has been working as a business analyst for a local financial services company for the past 13 years and is a volunteer for the Chevron Houston Marathon. For the last 5 or so years, fun for us has revolved around vintage and antiquing related activities: browsing antique and consignment stores, attending estate sales, trade days, auctions and everything in between. This brings us to today, why we’re here on Etsy… the crazy truth is that Steve left his job as a merchant mariner so that we could be together on dry land and begin a business doing what we truly enjoy. The aim of our Etsy shop is to offer vintage and antique goods that we find interesting at a fair price while preserving and passing on some history about our offerings. We believe that items from the past all have a story; we spend a considerable amount of time researching each item we offer and provide as much useful information about them as possible. We like to call this “History for the Preservationist”. When you buy an antique or vintage item from us, you become the storyteller who passes the information to others. We hope you find as much joy along the way as we have found.
