Meet the Members of Vintage Market Team- Tracie of Life In Stages


1- Tell us a bit about yourself?

I live with my husband and two children in the Pacific Northwest near Seattle. I started my Etsy business, Life In Stages in late January of this year.

2- What do you sell?

I sell vintage, up-cycled, and refinished items.

3- Favorite decade for vintage?

I don't know that I have a favorite, but I do seem to like the depression era pieces.

4- Favorite vintage item you own? Or regret having sold in the past?

My favorite vintage item is a cedar chest that was built in the 1930's and given to my mother on her 13th birthday as a "hope chest." It was given to me on my 13th and I passed it on to my daughter on her birthday.

4- Favorite item you are currently selling? And why?

I would like to keep so many of them it is hard to choose but I guess I would say the Antique Child's Chair. It is so sweet!http://www.etsy.com/listing/48826314/antique-wooden-childs-chair
