Some Information About capecodtreasures

Giving you an little more insight into the seller.

Welcome to Cape Cod Treasures!

I live on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, which is a prime location for anyone who enjoys vintage collectibles because, having been one of the first locations established in the USA, it is filled with unique treasures. It also has a large retirement community, many of whom are active antique dealers. I grew up on a farm and have a deep appreciation for nature and its creatures. I love collecting animal figurines of all kinds, made from all materials. I also love collecting small vintage plates, figurines and Southwestern pottery, as well as old tools, pocket knives, books, and anything else that catches my eye! 

Currently I have two eBid stores: Cape Cod Treasures, which offers an eclectic mix of everything vintage, and The Critter Corner, which caters to listings that are animal related as I grew up on a farm and love all critters! 

As I primarily ship fragile items, I make it a priority to always recycle my packaging materials. I get bubble wrap, tissue, and peanuts from a small local gift shop, which gets theirs from a large craft store. 

In addition, I recycle newspaper for wrapping and even boxes for shipping when I can get my hands on the the right size. 

I can also be found on eBay, where I have been a longstanding member since 2000. My virtual eBay store is named Lifeguard Designs. I also have a small store on Etsy called classiccapecod, and an Artfire store also named Cape Cod Treasures!

My favorites:

Anything vintage, Cape Cod oriented, figurines, animals, cats, dogs, pets, horses, cows, butterflies, birds, wild animals, jungle animals, any living creature. Also vintage linens, porcelain, glass: paperweights, amethyst, cobalt, emerald, ruby, amber, jewelry, bracelets, brass, pewter, carvings, gardening, butterflies, books, art, prints, metals, jewelry (bracelets), angels, decorative European plates, and so much more!

Skills and Techniques:

My professional experience spans a diversity of fields, ranging from the editing and writing of both electronic and hard copy to managing human services programs and health clubs. I am also a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor. I hold fitness certifications in a variety of different class formats. For years, I taught Ballet, Jazz, and Modern dance. Fitness is an integral part of my lifestyle, and I continue to teach part time. However, for the last 10 years I have been the full time proprietor of Lifeguard Designs, which began initially as a desktop publishing/web design business but has navigated into internet sales with a concentration in vintage collectibles and antiques. Actually my husband had been the collector, but he passed away unexpectedly several years ago, leaving me with a home filled with collectibles that I have been listing since to supplement my family income.

As the proprietor of Lifeguard Designs, which I have operated since 2002, I write electronic newsletters for businesses and develop presentations that can be delivered electronically through PowerPoint, Constant Contact/similar newsletter formats, or sites like 

In addition, I have a professional background in writing about fitness due to my years of experience as a fitness professional and my academic background, which is in English, writing, and design. I have written and designed material for fitness companies, churches, nonprofits, and businesses. I produce electronic eBlasts, newsletters, brochures, policy/procedures manuals, and literature in any format--electronic or hard copy.

Lifeguard Designs is also the name of my eBay store, which specializes in vintage collectibles made predominantly of glass or ceramics. As an avid animal lover who was raised on a farm near the ocean, many of my collectibles also include animal figurines and nautical items from all over the world.

I have a Web site online about the suspicious death of my son on his college campus. You can find it by Googling Adam Prentice campus crime. I'd love your feedback...

I am always hoping that one day I'll unravel what really happened to him.

Thank you for stopping by, and keep checking back because we are listing new auctions all the time!
