From sewing items to firkins to shaker items...if it is beautiful in some way,i will have it ! But remember ,beauty is in the eye of the beholder !
i have always loved the old artifacts of the world. the history of america and of the world is so interesting and being able to see,touch and own something that is very old or rare is a privilege. i try to find things that are not normally found in shops-more rare items. i am a retired art specialist from the local city schools and my ability as an artist helps me select items that have artistic merit as well as being functional...sometimes artistic merit is what they have ,and only that.. even as an art teacher i was taking my lunch hour and visiting antique shops in the city..i have been a dealer now for 43 years and still get that thrill when i find something i love.
