I'd like to introduce you to a Vintage Market teammate and her new venture. Please meet Toma of VictorianCobweb on etsy as she tells us about her new venture and take a look at the fabulous estate she is currently working on.....

I have been an Estate Helper for a number of years, before that was in partnership with a friend buying and selling estate contents. My husband of 22 years got me started in antiques by buying me a beautiful Victorian Mourning Brooch and I was won over then.

There is something to being involved in finding treasures - whether it be old or new - that I find really exciting, and being able to help someone find something that they will treasure for their lifetime is wonderful! Add to that being able to help a family with their loved ones treasures is something that is very sole satisfying.

I was given an opportunity to do this - my first - estate sale when I couldn't possibly think of taking it on but it was a door opened that I had wanted to pursue at some point in my life and I just decided if I didn't walk through now I never would.

The ladies that referred me are the local estate liquidators in this area and they assured me that I could do this or they wouldn't have recommended me so here I am! That's how Estates by Toma got started. I have to say I have had a blast! The family that I am working for has been awesome and they are having fun right alongside of me! That in itself says to me that I am doing something right! Every house, every loved one has something to say, and I find it most satisfying to find out what their treasures have to say about them.
