About my avatar... It's a photo of a MAIO Big-Eyed Girl puzzle partially put together which I sold some time ago... I've been into vintage stuff for years and years and ...well, a long time. 50's 60's and 70's Retro Mod clothes and assorted funky stuff. Eventually I opened a retro shop that was quite successful for 6 years until the internet beckoned in 2002. I've enjoyed a successful run on another site with 100% feedback - much of it complimenting my packaging as well as my items - and I hope to make Bonanza my singular endeavor over time. This site is so warm and friendly, classy and aesthetically pleasing with a pleasantly wry sense of humor... and just a great place to hang out! Spend some time browsing Bonanza.

Cherchez Chez Moi will have a little of a wide variety of stuff up for sale; atomic 50's, "Eames Era" stuff, kitschy stuff, art moderne and deco, useful stuff, lots of retro, various ethnic items in any category, vintage Fashion, Sewing & Knitting Patterns and COLOR! I love 40's Pottery & Ceramics and Folk Art and Paint By Number completed "art", as well as some of the 2000 or so pieces of vintage 30's to 50's Hammered Aluminum Decorative Hand Wrought Collectibles I've had stashed since the 80's.
I am definitely an "eclectic" collector, if not eccentric. My secret passion is anything with Women With Food On Their Heads ...or "WWFOTH" which I Would like to elevate to a search-able keyword. If you have a wwfoth, let me know. I don't part with those.
You can e-mail me at email@example.com if you have any questions about my items.
