IF YOU REALLY LOVE IT, YOU’LL FIND A WAY TO USE IT!   Decorating With
Yard Sale Finds and Family Mementos
An Interview With Patricia Yokom, Co-Chairperson of
the 7th Annual Antique Show & Sale at the Dixon May Fair   
               

“If you see something you just love, its best to buy it ‘cause’ in an antique store
it won’t hang around . . . if you really love it, you’ll find a way to use it!”, says
Patricia Yokom of Dixon, California.  Unlike most of us who have family
mementoes and yard sale finds stored in cupboards and drawers, never to see
the light of day, Patricia Yokom has mastered the art of creatively recycling,
displaying and giving new life to her favorite things.  Her sewing room, guest
room and master bedroom are filled with examples of her genius: A circa 1940's
British department store mannequin displays a Victorian dress, gloves from her
childhood hang with other mementoes near family portraits, a vintage fabric
border on a pillow sham adorned with sewing notions is transformed into a
picture, a doll house with a glass top becomes a lamp table, the clear base of a
table lamp displays her Mother’s 1920s and 30's depression-era buttons, a
collage of family photos under glass gives new life to a distressed writing desk,
a 1940's-50's bedspread adorned with a “yo yo” fabric border becomes an
impressive wall hanging, a shabby sheik “window” with vintage curtains
expands the virtual size of her laundry room, vintage hair ornaments are  
attractively grouped together in an oval frame, a fabric bottom masks damage to
a charming hanging birdcage discovered at the Salvation Army, and Victorian
ladies boots and a Spode china rose tea cup with fresh roses to match become
attractive table centerpieces.  “Its one thing to have them stored in your garage,
but to be able to have them out and enjoy them [is so much more satisfying],”
says Patricia.

Patricia Yokom of Dixon, California is well known in the greater Sacramento area
for her knowledge of vintage fashion.  Recent speaking engagements include
the Dixon Library; A.A.U.W. , Davis; Newcomers, Roseville; the Antique Interest
Group of The Farm Circle, Davis; PEO groups in Modesto and Davis, as well as a
television appearance on Sacramento and Company, Channel 10.  Mrs. Yokom
currently serves on the Soroptimist of Dixon, International’s Annual Antique
Show Committee and has served as Antique Show Chairperson for past events.  
She is a member of the Dixon Chamber of Commerce and  Friends of the Dixon
Public Library.

Besides writing a popular newspaper column which goes out to 300,000+
readers every other week, Mr. Yvaska continues to teach  antiques seminars
for the City of San Jose and maintain a very active schedule delivering
programs and lectures to antiques clubs, womens’ groups, museums and
civic organizations, i.e. Rotary. He also works with numerous Bay Area non-
profit groups, assisting them with the sale of donated vintage goods. The
funds raised help send students to college or summer swim camp and
provide medical care to families in need.  Steven Wayne Yvaska was born in
Boston and became a collector by age nine.  He graduated cum laude from
Syracuse University where he began to delve into the decorative arts. He
completed his Master's degree in Environmental Science and studied with
experts including Dr. Charles Ryder Dibble, Sally Kinsey, Ed Fricke, and
Bruce Havens. Over the years Steven developed a deep interest in
American silver, the topic of his graduate thesis.
