As long as I can remember I have always loved antiques.
They have always given me a sense of warmth and stability.
Falling asleep as a young child to the tick tock of hand wound wall clocks.
Waking up in the morning in my victorian mahogany inlaid twin bed; an item picked up at curbside by my Gramps.
All discarded items that my Grandfather Kiely and Great Uncle John procurred while cleaning out attics and basements up on Beacon Hill and surrounding areas of Boston in the 1920-30's.
The original "Pickers".
My Mom still proudly owns a beautiful cherrywood "longcase clock", circa 1680's, that miraculously was moved singlehandedly by Gramps from a 4th floor walkup....or so the story goes!
She is my faithful companion to estate sales, 80 plus…
