All About Me
What everyone should know about me
As a dealer in vintage jewellery i am always on the hunt ,with my eye out for something special,dazzling,exciting .What attracts me to vintage objects is the idea that every piece has a history ,and holds its own stories and secrets .
Things I sell
My interest in all things antique began with a chance discovery of an auction house at Newtown in my teens and has continued throughout my life . My first serious business was in the early 90s in Paddington NSW with Strange Cargo on Oxford St,where i sold jewellery and furniture ,mainly from the 1920s and 30s. With the advent of the internet i began my ebay dealing in 2000 with the trading name mondocargo, and have since developed my business to one specialising in quality costume jewellery and scandinavian ceramics with the name mr.vintage.trader.
The wonder of sending beautiful objects around the country ..and the world.. gives me a constant buzz. The chance discovery of a special piece of jewelery never fails to excite ! Once the vintage bug bites its in your blood and it never leaves ..
