Ever since I was old enough to save babysitting money, I frequented thrift shops and auctions in search of wonderful old objects, fantasizing about the history of each treasure I lovingly dragged home (much to the dismay of my parents) !
No object was too damaged - even today I am partial to gently aged old books and items with faded patinas, and believe that we lovers of all things vintage and antique are the original re-cyclers, right?
My college major in Fine Art drew me even more to collecting and admiring clothes and old objects that were made with attention to detail no longer found.
I continue to buy and "save" old items from anonymity, all the while also running a rental business for the creative arts that I started 35 years ago. (Yes, I am THAT old, but young at heart! :-) )…
