Tony Hershey's Profile

About

I grew up in the sciences, but have always had a love of the arts. In college I majored in Social Work-Criminology, but have spent most of my adult life in ministry...15 years on college campuses, and 12 years in churches.

In 2006 I moved out of ministry and into full-time antique shows and online sales. I also raise thousands of plants and garden produce for farmers markets during the growing season, specializing in hostas and gourmet garlic varieties.

I live alone on a cute little acreage. It was very wounded land when I found it, and begged for a healing touch. I have a cat I rescued from death when just days old. Since I am the only family he has ever known, he is rather attached to me, and I to him.

The older I get the more drawn back to the arts I am. I am drawn to anything of beauty...from a lovely woman, to a sunset, to a flower in my prairie, to a rock in the ground that is cut into a flaming gemstone. Perhaps because of my years in ministry, I find beauty in places where most would overlook it.

Being a life-long student I am always learning, always searching, always discovering, yet you might think I'm doing nothing as you watch me sitting in a field of prairie flowers playing my blues harmonica to nobody...or watching a butterfly that has landed on my hand. In antiques and handmades, I am drawn to the unusual and quirky, which you will find occassionally in my shop. Happy hunting!
