Tell us a little about yourself.

I’m originally from Long Island, New York, where I owned a hair salon. I was also an educator and did hair shows several times a year. About 10 years ago, one of my daughters moved here after she was married, and I decided to follow her! Now, all of my family live here except one daughter and granddaughter who are still in New York. I have three daughters, four granddaughters and one great-granddaughter. We are a family of girls!

What is your special talent?

I have a good artistic eye, and love creating beautiful things – I paint, make jewelry, most any artistic endeavor. I love fashion, plus I’m a certified interior decorator. Styling hair is an art form also; one I’ve done for years. I also refinish/redesign furniture for Something Old/Something New.

What are your holiday plans?

My daughters and their families will come to my house, and I’ll cook a huge Italian dinner. Usually, I go back to Long Island for the holidays, but my business is keeping me here this year.

Best holiday gift?

Having my family close – what could be better? Our family always gives gifts, but we are a practical group and try to give something the other really needs. I spoiled my girls at Christmas when they were growing up, but I always included the practical things, like new pajamas, and they still love getting those for Christmas.

Tell us what’s new and exciting at Something Old/Something New.

When I first moved here, I worked as a hair stylist, but last July I opened my store – this has been a dream of mine for many years. I really enjoy it, even though it’s a lot of work! Probably 80% of the things in the store are mine. New things come in every week, and we also have upscale consigners and talented artisans who sell their work in my store. It really excites me to find a piece of furniture that is well made and a good brand name that I can re-do and repurpose to be used and enjoyed for many more years.

We have some fun holiday gifts as well – things you’ll never find in a “big box” store. My jewelry line is unique and beautiful, we have handmade soaps and essential oil products that everyone loves, plus I can customize anything for you.

Something Old/Something New Consignment and Retail is located at 4683 Dick Pond Road in Myrtle Beach, and hours are Monday-Saturday, 10 am-5 pm. Call Sheila at 843-907-4600.
