I bought what I liked and what I could afford. But that was then, this is now. While I say “collector”, my family says “pack rat”. So I'm selling my pre-loved antique and vintage items - celluloid, bakelite, Little Leather Library, stereograph cards, '40s cordé purses, wall pockets, '50s seamed nylons, and other antique and vintage treasures from the 1890s to the 1980s.
