"In the past I have seen knives used to help with shucking corn. The leather fits over the thumb of your normal work hand. There may have been other leather over fingers to hold knife to hand and guard fingers. Knife is used to cut husk as you shuck.…"
I have been walking forward through time gathering mementos of earlier times. My time travel machine is Books, Back Issue Magazines, Sheet Music, and Vinyl Records. I have been selling for 20+ years, but collecting a life time. I know the time is approaching when I will need to part with most of my links to the past. I can't take any of it with me when I leave this place, so I need to find others younger that want to protect the vehicle as they time travel. I am on this site to promote sales to a special group of people, Antique and Collectibles lovers who have the desire to connect with the past.
Here's something to look at
Website: Optional if you have antique, collectibles, art or related website.
Hello Bernie, I under stand your frustration with dancing with the 800 pound gorilla and trying to sell. I have been there and done that and quit there about 18 months ago. I went to Bonanzle a year ago in January, and have been pleased there. Bonanzle you would find refreshing, Friendly helpful forum community, good service. The site is very stable policies wise and if there has been change, it has been welcomed. Bonanzle is only about 20 months old now, so there are improvements that have been made. And too make it even better I have been selling some and it seems to be getting better all the time. But don't expect it to be the sales that the big place has. You do have to do your own promoting of your booth, and there are many people who will point you in the right directions, Bonanzle does provide some tools for you to use. The price for selling is much better then then feeding the gorilla. No up front cost to list and it is very easy to do. The question to be asked is where is the future for me, I decide the the bay was not it. That I was better off staking my place with a site that wanted me there, and they would have a promising future selling Antique and Vintage items. I am glad I went there it is the best alternative selling site available. I would say give it a shot, doesn't cost you more then time to get your feet wet................Good Luck, Fathertime
