One of the wonderful things about the new building is the expanded space. It has given opportunity to add to our Sweet Family. This morning I would like to introduce to you one of two fabulous women who have joined the Sweet Gang.
As an Ohio farm girl, Sandra was born into the “junking” life. It didn’t matter whether it was furniture, collectibles, machinery, animals, or even pets: If it wasn’t bid on, bartered for, traded or swapped out, it didn’t have a chance to go home with Sandra or her family.
Sandra’s “love of the hunt” continued after buying and moving to a ranch on the San Pedro River in Southeastern Arizona. The farm girl gave way to the rancher, who now was collecting and selling antique Western memorabilia. Her store, called “The Stagg Ranch Collection” was named appropriately after the ranch she now called home.
A move back to Phoenix prompted her to infuse a certain eclectic and energetic urban feel to her new finds. Sandra found an outlet for her creativity and her new style among the clients that hired her to paint faux marble on columns and walls, full wall murals, and trompe l'oeil renderings. She painted and decorated and tracked down furniture and collectibles for clients from Desert Mountain near her home in Cave Creek, all the way out to commercial and residential projects in the Windy City.
Windy City work trips ultimately gave way to frequent travel to London. On other trips, visiting little towns in Switzerland and Italy or the back roads of Germany has given her a new outlook on the truly international reach of good “junking”.
The challenge and reward for Sandra now is to track down and acquire the eclectic pieces locally that reflect her love of the craftsmanship and history of the Old World that she and her clients have come to recognize as her style: Old World Eclectic.
You are going to love Sandra, we sure do.
