Moss Cottage Vintage opened in Fredericksburg in 1998 at the Fredericksburg Antique Mall. It was started as a way for me to be a self-employed mom with a flexible schedule so I could be there to raise my son Adam. Over the years I learned I am most successful when I sell items I really love instead of just following the latest trends. I carry fun retro decor and kitchen items, industrial and office supplies and vintage costume jewelry. In 2010 I became interested in making mixed-media art and crafts and have added them for sale as well, although mostly at shows.
