The ladder back,rush seat,chair that sits in my kitchen
the oak and cast iron school desk with the long unused inkwell.
A child's wicker carriage that once held a precious doll...
Leather bound books, held by many, the pages thin and fine...
the binding worn and tattered...

I remember where each piece was acquired and often from whom.
A connection or kinship is felt if only for a brief moment.
I have always been attracted to one of a kind vintage pieces
that have one thing in common no matter which category they are in.
I was thrilled to acquire them!
My heart beats faster,I stop breathing for a second ot two.
My attention at first isn't focused.I feel overwhelmed when I'm in a room full of any old stuff.

What I am interested in isn't the monetary value
but the history and romance that surrounds them, the feelings that are aroused when a particular single piece draws you to it
The places I frequent are likely places that one would expect to find treasures.
Flea Markets to Estate Sales

The anticipation of hunting and gathering is exciting to me

Long before the items are categorized as Antique or Collectible Valuable or not
I fall in love...
