About

I'm giving it a go. I just told my wife... "whenever I go anywhere, out for dinner..run an errand or even vacation, I just end up at antique stores, flea markets and in peoples trash cans. So, why not try to make a living at it. I like the ideas that come from searching for buried treasures. Things made so long ago were such better quality than stuff today. They may have outlived their life in their intended function but so many things can have a new life, with just as much function, if it's adapted correctly.

It makes me happy to see things reused instead of tossed away. The more stuff with soul you have the more stories you can tell. They make your home more interesting, they make your life more interesting and they remind you of your appreciation for quality.
