If it’s old, chipped, painted, rusty, peeling, faded, or worn I love it! Influenced by my mom’s love for old used furnishings in her home, I learned early on the joy of finding new life in old and abandoned items. My mom showed me the definition of “Shabby Chic” before there was a name for it. I bought my first antique when I was 17 with one of my first paychecks, and never stopped painting/restoring furniture for myself. I spent the first part of my career in corporate America as a National Sales Trainer and National Account Manager in San Francisco and the Bay Area. Then, when I moved to Placerville with my family, I thought it was time to pursue my dream of owning my own Shabby Chic Store to share my passion with others! I owned “Andrea’s Vintage Cottage” on Main Street in Placerville for seven years. After that I joined “Melange” in Folsom and then “Serendipity” in Placerville. I am elated to now be part of the “Under The Arbor” team! It is my intention to bring you a beautiful and diverse collection for your home & garden in a style that will make you feel cozy, joyful, inspired, and happy to be at home. There is no place as special as your own home, and I hope my furniture & décor will find their way into your home! I am honored to have your business!!
