My name is Lynette and I have loved to write ever since I wrote a short story about a mermaid when I was about 8. I am the happy shopkeeper of Penelope's Hope Chest, a shop about Vintage Inspiration, in Portland Oregon. I also am the long-time promoter of Brookhaven Vintage Marketplace, an antiques, Artisan Goods & Home Decor show in Beaverton, Oregon. I like writing about both these enterprises, as well as my long love affair with collecting vintage treasures and creating art with fabric and paper ephemera. I also write about my adventures traveling and my collection of interesting quotes that resound with me. If you visit my very first post, you will meet Penelope, my inspiration.
I have a really fun page on Facebook for Penelope's Hope Chest. Come chat with me there!
