My love for the old and excitement of the auction has led me to turn my passion for antiques into a business. It's tiring, dirty, back-breaking work, but completely thrilling. Some people go to Vegas; I go to auctions for a similar rush of heart-pounding anticipation & euphoria. Sometimes I come home with a few treasures; sometimes kicking my butt for paying too much or missing something that totally went too cheap. But I ALWAYS come home with a little more knowledge, learned from the wonderful older people I meet at the auctions -- the walking history books who really are the best treasures of all.
