Finding My Niche
I LOVE vintage and antiques. It took me exactly 51 years to realize it.
I used to buy vintage items at a small local store and one day the owner said to me, "you should sell on ebay." I said, "okay how?" Her boyfriend spent 2 hours with me showing me how to sell on ebay and I was off and running! Occasionally she would take me to the flea market on Sunday otherwise I just hit the yard and estate sales.
The first thing I learned was that I had GREAT instincts which I think is imperative in this business. Items other people passed by were left sitting there waiting for me. I also learned about items so quickly that I knew that this was what I was supposed to be doing. I have found wonderful items but the problem is because I love the stuff so much it is sometimes hard to sell. I know other vintage dealers can relate to this, can't you? : )
I learned about pottery first. I was getting a pretty good handle on it when another dealer bought a piece of glass that I had passed up because I didn't know anything about glass. He made quite a bit of a profit on it and I decided that I would now move on to learning about glass which I did. From there I moved onto other things. I am not an expert in any particular group of items but know enough about each and with my instincts I do all right. I wanted to learn and become an expert in one thing but there is just too much stuff and I want to know about all of it.
We all have different paths in life that we can take and I decided to take them all. I go down one path and then backtrack to go down the next one. I don't want to miss out on anything.
Pictured are just a few of my favorite things.
I am also a seamstress and had my own drapery business. If you want to know more go here to read about it:

The above photo is a candlestick from a garniture which consisted of a clock and matching candlesticks. It is probably French and is Marie Antoinette.
