About Us


Welcome to Chantilly Dreams, an exquisite collection of antique and vintage handmade lace, bridal lace, heirloom linens, fine antique porcelain and china, as well as vintage sewing patterns, sewing antiques and more for the enthusiast or the serious collector.

My collections are carefully chosen from countries around the world that have mastered meticulously handcrafted lace and embroidered textiles such as France, England, Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Germany and Malta. Featured are pieces that epitomize rarity, historical significance, and quality of handmade craftsmanship. I am passionate about preserving historical lace, linens, and other treasures for future generations, and committed to raising awareness regarding their value as art.

I am always interested in acquiring the types of items I offer at Chantilly Dreams, whether it's one special piece or an entire estate. Occasionally exceptional items are accepted on consignment. I am enthusiastic about antique lace from the 16th Century to the 19th Century, as well as fine linens, textiles, lace fans, and antique & fine vintage apparel.

Chantilly Dreams offers exquisite antique and vintage wedding fashions from the late 1800s to the 1960s, all in beautiful condition, ready for your special vintage wedding day. Bespoke couture services are available as well. I will design the wedding gown or dress of your dreams, drawing inspiration from an extensive collection of vintage patterns and years of dressmaking experience. Embellishments will include the finest vintage lace and passementerie.  I believe that your wedding day deserves to be a luxurious and decadent experience, as you will remember it always. Chantilly Dreams can provide one of a kind treasures that will highlight one of the most beautiful days of your life.

Chantilly Dreams is located in beautiful Bloomington, Indiana. Private viewings are available by appointment for serious buyers. For inquiries, please feel free to contact me via your method of preference.

Yours truly,
