ABOUT

From a young age, I’ve been interested in the past. My junking habits were picked up from my paternal grandfather who was known to frequent an antique and junk market in his day. Those habits made their way to thrift stores all over the state of Texas and then some. On my first date with my husband, he asked me what some of my favorite hobbies were, I named antiquing as a favorite pastime. He visibly perked up, as he himself (it turns out) was a fellow digger of treasures. I think it was then he knew he was in love; or, maybe that was when he saw me eat an entire pint of homemade gelato by myself…who knows.

Through the years, while still pursuing my creative outlets and traditional jobs, I would find myself drawn back to antiques and flea markets wherever I might be. I felt a need to save these old items...to provide these pieces with a new life. Saint Signora was born from this desire. A haven, so to speak, where beloved pieces could perch until finding the right dwelling to spend their remaining days in. Each found piece is destined to be an heirloom for future generations. The same goes with our newer items and those handcrafted and designed by me…from the individual sheets of handmade paper to the hand drawn seal designs inspired by old France.

I believe items embody nostalgic qualities of eras, but they also become reflections of the owners who treasure them in their homes. It’s my hope when you encounter my goods, you’re transported to another time and your pieces become part of your own history....I'm here to help collect what you love- to curate a place with items that make a home feel like a home.

Thank you for visiting my humble shop.
