"@Diane and Ed's: I'm not sure what you mean by founts but nothing I have on this lamp is glass except the light bulb. It seems to be brass and a natural finish iron. Nothing has even really been wired. There is an independent light bulb…"

Tell us about your interest in antiques, collecting and any antique related websites, blogs, businesses.
I have an account on Etsy, but other than that I haven't found any other Internet based outlets for my interests. I subscribe to local auction and estate sale groups on Facebook, but thrift and antique stores as well as abandoned buildings are where I generally get my antiques.
If you belong to other collector groups which one(s) do you belong to?
Would you be interested in moderating or co moderating a group forum in the area of collecting you specialize in?
Sure, but I don't know how qualified I am.
