About the Owner: Johanna is a German-born American whose family is renowned for her father's gift of carving ivory prior to it being banned. Johanna is a wonderful lady who has lived a lot of life -- and collected a LOT of fine things over the years. Things she is now trying to downsize because, like she says, you can't take it with you.

She has even written a book about her life's story, The Ivory Carver's Daughter, which is available for sale at www.theivorycarversdaughter.com. What makes her book even more interesting is that it is a historical biography that intertwines her life in Germany during WWII with some of the very real historical facts as seen through a child's eyes. Her book has received several great reviews -- not even the three editors at her publisher's could put it down -- so you should check it out!

She's also a photographer and loves creating websites and producing videos. She's done a lot of work for fellow sellers that she began offering her web and digital design services at www.jfk-site.com. She does work for both personal and business use, so if you have a family album you'd like to convert to a video, or would like to create a family site, Johanna would be happy to assist you.

About her Store: You should see all of the fine things she has in her shop. Once you take a look, you'll see why her shop is called European Goodies. Her shop offers a vast selection of handcrafted pre-ban ivory, antiques, Bohemian Czech crystal, fine jewelry, collectibles and more. You'll certainly find quite a few items that will have you oohing and aahing, so be sure to check out her shop!
