Crafters and collectors who hunt for vintage photos, books, and magazines are historians in their way. They’re the memory keepers of these treasures that were either discarded, lost or simply the families or people who held these treasures are no longer with us.
I am one of those people who has a passion for preserving these items and reflecting moments of history and those who lived long ago. To ponder their story as what it may have been like. We may not know who they were but the love of using their images and belongings in my journals and art keeps their memory alive.
By a wonderful and beautiful chance, I discovered Marie on Instagram who hunts these cherished memories and gives us mere mortal souls an opportunity to acquire these gifts from the past.
Marie’s passion and understanding for the historical value in preserving eras gone by is the inspiration for her endeavors of reselling original vintage photos, books and paper on Instagram and Etsy. Not only does this aid in saving cultures and identity, they are perfect for collectors and crafters to give new life to these precious momentos.
Marie is also a journal maker and her unique vintage Gothic Victorian style of creating inspires timeless journals.
Today on YouTube, I am sharing a haul video showcasing part of the treasures I have acquired from Marie. To find her weekly sales, follow Marie on Instagram and Etsy.
