About Us

Eleanor Brown is my mother, and she is the inspiration for the beauty found within this store. As a child, she taught me about dolls, antiques, and 'the old days' with such passion that I have continued to love it throughout my life.

Eleanor was born a country girl and eventually became a world traveler with my father. (They married 9 days after they met, and were happily married — without a single argument — for 52 years before Dad passed on.)

Mom loves and approves of everything we carry. You'll find a lot of our selections leading back to the same styles of nature, mixed with vintage appeal and far away lands. Those are my roots.

Jennifer


We are Jennifer and Rob, also known as Southern Dutch. (I am Southern, and Rob is Dutch.) Rob and I originally started a 'Santos' store in 2009, SantosCageDoll.com — which in January 2015 was transformed into a huge archive.

Along the way, we found an abundance of other treasures to share — which called for an additional webstore. So, with Eleanor serving as the site's honorary curator we expanded here, mid-2011. And, while she doesn't come to the shop every day, Eleanor loves to go through catalogs and then see the new products when they come in. It's like Christmas, over and over!

Please go ahead and peruse Eleanor's "new and vintage lovelies for the lady of the house." :) The site stocks a curated selection of French Country and Urban Farmhouse style products. Think rustic bee skeps, ruffled shower curtains, bird-themed treasures, 'Santos' treasures and other precious décor pieces to grace your home or garden... Quality items that will bring happiness, or serve a useful purpose in your life. Our goal is for you to have that same great Christmas feel when you open your order! 

Lastly, please know that our online stores — these days also including MyCraftSupplies.com, as well as those we operate on Amazon, eBay, Etsy and (soon) Walmart — are run entirely by our family team. So rest assured that your purchase has been handled with care... and love. 

Jennifer and Rob
