How it Started!

How it Started!


In 1993 I bought a 1873 hotel, it had doors that needed skeleton keys. It contained 26 rentable rooms, 2 closets, front and back doors, one water closet, and 2 showers. 3 apartments downstairs. Four rentable stores. Rooms within the stores, and a 5 to 6 thousand square foot basement, also with doors. So I had a giant key ring with a lot of skeleton keys. They are old and they break, so at every chance I bought keys at farm sales, lock parts and door knobs. Anything that had to do with old doors and keys, that were very good. Seven years later, when I moved, I took the boxes with me and started to sell the antique items online. In 2004 I saw faux keys for sale, beautiful cost efficient, in many sizes,  and I bought $70.00 worth. I sold them out fast. I then bought a couple hundred dollars or more worth of keys, those sold fast too. By 2008 I was selling more faux keys than real ones.  After talking to many people, I started to realize that lots of people use them for keepsakes, events and gifts. That brings us to today and my own site, where the buyer can browse through my store and select his or her own set of keys. I am still available to personally talk to you.  I have many reorders from churches, schools and clubs each year My number is in the central time zone and I will take a personal call   m-f 9-5 sat sometimes part of the day. 7148568934
