Traveller. Antiques Dealer. Mother. Model. Iconoclast

The wonderfully compelling and unorthodox memoir of 69-year old Sarah Jane Adams.

Born in post-war England and now based in Sydney, Australia, Sarah Jane Adams is an antique jewellery dealer and jewellery designer who started the hashtag #mywrinklesaremystripes

First ‘discovered’ on Ari Seth Cohen’s Advanced Style blog, SJ has very much lived life ‘out of the box’, most recently being a participant on Big Brother Australia, where she made it to Final 3.

Auction catalogues can reveal a lot about a person: their life, their loves and their style. Sarah Jane Adams tells her story through a lifetime’s collection of rare pieces and worthless objects, as well as personal photographs and effects from her ‘estate’. Told with wit, pathos and charm. Life In A Box illustrates the deeply personal connection that we have with our belongings: they are laden with rich meaning and adventure and, above all, redolent of our stories.
