What It Means To Me.

This all started with Junk and My wife.
Where Do I begin. Oh yes. My wife and the junk. About three years ago I decided to leave my Career as a Chef and focus more on my family. But I could not decide what to do to make ends meet. But the thing is I have always enjoyed Creating and restoring things. From the basic old furniture piece to the complex working of a old tube radio. So I had a lot of junk laying around my Garage and I just had to figure out what to do with it. I decided to take a chance at a local antique market And I hated everydamn minute of it. But you know what? Right then and there it started me on a journey that I have come to love.
Auction to estate sale to garage sale. It all had its place and It was all coming together. Doing time on the antique circuit. Learning the trade. What to do and not to do. The rules were never ending and the advise was ever flowing. And then one day I met a gentleman that would tell me in his wisdom " Eric. Do what makes you happy and the rest is cake. Be yourself and be honest about it. Everything you see here has a story but the one thing Missing today is your story and why you do it. Every Piece you put your hands on has a story to tell and part of that piece is your story."
With that advice I stopped looking at things as just random objects of value to Something that Could continue its story with myself and then someone else.
To this day, I still see people I have sold things to and we continue to talk about the item they have gotten from me and what they are doing with it, How it looks or my personal favorite, That they have given it to a family member to enjoy.
Three Years later and with my seven year old son in tow. we have traveled far and wide and had many adventures and many great builds and many great finds. yes we have also had some terrible experiences and spectacular fails but we laugh at the disasters and move on. Because we are in it for the adventure and the most important thing the story.
