About

Confessions of a Compulsive Collector

I have fond memories as a child, visiting the home of my eldest sister. I would roam about, admiring all of the antiques, needlework, and interior decor. There was always such a warm comfortable feeling, being surrounded by such beauty, knowing that each piece surely had a wonderful history and interesting story.

Once I was more mature, and earning my own income, I begain visiting local antique shops. My limited knowledge and income resulted in limited and infrequent acquisitions. I would make a (very minor) purchase and then begin my research. Initially, I only sought items which would help to decorate my meager home. Gradually, my initial pursuits turned to multiple collections. The spiral began.

Yes, the spiral began; but, it wasn't a sense of spiraling out of control. It was more like that little girl who visited her sister's home and like a child in a field of fresh fragrant clover, arms extended, swirling around around and around and around, my heart filled with joy. I've now come to know this as a passion for collecting.

Over many years, my career provided an opportunity to travel, a steady income, and greater resources for collecting. Now, as I prepare to leave for my next antique/flea market, I shuffle a little path through my room to grab my purse and carefully step over fragiles and jump over piles as I bolt out the door, with intensions of being the first to arrive at the early morning market to find my treasures. A clear sign of compulsion, but still, the little girl swirling around and around and around...enjoying her passion.
