48) Summary: Seeking treasure hunting experiences

Name: Tonya Fitzpatrick WorldFootprints.com

Category: Travel

Email: query-1hh2@helpareporter.net

Media Outlet: WorldFootprints.com

Deadline: 7:00 PM EST - 31 August

Query:

Having just returned from participating in a dinosaur dig and
gold expedition, I am writing an article about places (US &
Abroad) where tourists can scout for treasures (land & sea) in a
responsible/sustainable way. Prefer to showcase treasure
hunting experiences that are managed by outfits with a track
record of operating in an eco-friendly manner and producing
treasure for visitors. I don't want tourist traps that "may"
offer a find. I'm seeking locations where finds can and have
been made. Please forward: 1) website link; 2) location; 3)
types of treasures found; 4) years of operation; 5) brief
paragraph outlining sustainable practices and a snapshot of the
area. (Specifically interested in treasure hunting along the US
East Coast) Would also be interested in speaking to individuals
who have found treasures. I will contact you for images and
additional information if I feature you. I do need a website or
a listing in your local Chamber for research purposes. Please
no off pitches.

Sumaya,

Since I bought my building in 1996, I have trying to get my "junk" out of my back room in order to get extra space for my shop. Tbe floor is in serous jeopardy of -- well falling - for lack of a better word -- besides collapsing - into underground oblivion. I have been waiting for my husband to "fix" said floor - hahahah! I guess the cows will come home first (even though we have no cows).

To all members of I antique on Line - this is a great place, but what even makes it greater is being able to "see" you --- and by seeing you, this does not mean your actually self but an identity or pseudo image if you will, that could be anything you want to be (within reason). I have many different Avatars - or images - but here I like using a photo of my brick and mortar store. I also like using my puppies - one such photo is of my Yorkie Zoie with her five puppies beneath her, and one pup in particular named Mackie who at the same time I snapped the picture, rolled on his back. This is definitely a Kodak moment. However; you do not have to be camera proficient and can even choose clip art or anything free from the Internet.

We want you to have an enjoyable time here, and to stay a while. which means we would like to "see you" !!!!

The idea is to sell it  all :) but what I found helpful is to sort your finds by type, glass, linens so on and os forth, using those skinny metal shelves that are narrow and high (6 ' at least) in a spare room or garage if you have one date the find of each piece. Then after 2 months I go back and re evalute each item to keep, sell (on line or show), auction, donate, finally trash.

It is easy for me because I donot collect anything :)

Been selling for over 17 years and still looking for better ways to store things. Hope this will help a little

:)

if you putting it on the floor, get some shelves and use that upper space you can some times get 3-4-5 times the stuff in the same floor space.

or sell some of  it

I have a question for all my fellow junksters......where do you store your stuff?  Do you chuck it in the garage, basement, extra room, storage locker?  I got stuff and am short on space.  Would love some suggestions.
