When I was five, I attended an antique auction with my dad.The peacocks at the site interested me much more than the auction items. Eventually I became bored and wanted to go home. It's one of my first memories.
Fast forward too many years. My dad and I are sharing a space at Round Top. This is a ginormous antique show where thousands of dealers (and buyers) come to spend a couple of weeks. We did this for two years. It's one of my favorite memories.
The fascination with cool old stuff is genetically coded within me. For years I collected items that for whatever reason just caught my eye. Finally I had to choose between a room for my stuff, and a bedroom for my son. I sure do love that child. He is one flexible person. For me, the hunt is part of the fun. I love buying curiosities. I love selling curiosities. I haunt garage sales, estate sales, thrift shops and bulk pick up days. I'm kinda like American…
