Wood Bust with Mother of Pearl Inlay and Engraved Designs

  I purchased this exquisite wood bust many years ago at one of the many local antique stores, thrift shops and consignment stores that I used to visit.  I don't believe that I'd ever researched this and instead placed it on a shelf in my bedroom.  I especially like the triangular shape of the wood stand, the mother of pearl inlay on the face and the many engraved designs carved into the wood surface.  Looking at this today I somehow have a feeling that this came from an island nation where the…See More

Silverplate Candle Holder and Incense Burner Made in Morocco by SADF

  I wasn't certain whether I'd posted this photo before; it's an item that I purchased in a local antiques shop or thrift store.  A silverplate metal candleholder and incense burner made in Morocco; the base is engraved SADF and "fabrique en Maroq."  The tallest candleholder measures 9 1/2" high.  I found at least two other similar silverplate candleholders with different more exotic designs however I like my plain one.  I'd suspect that this dates to the 1950's or 1960's but I've never spent…See More

My Childrens' Toy Musk Ox was Sold to Another Thrift Store Client

I yesterday went to a thrift store that I used to visit several years ago. The store was very busy with clients on a Sunday and I spent a long time looking thru lots of collectibles.  The only things I found were a very clean used childrens' Musk Ox toy that had a baby Ox on top and a Yamaha Baroque Alto recorder.  The Musk Ox was large and I asked the cashier to hold it for me.  I later walked to the cashier and went to pay for both when I sadly found out that they'd sold my Musk Ox to…

Buying and Collecting Orrefors Swedish Art Glass

 My glass collection began surprisingly enough with an award offered by the Acura dealer where I used to work; our employees had a choice of 5-6 different items such as watches, a camera, a personal radio, jewelry and a Lancelot large crystal bowl from Orrefors.  Of the roughly 110 employees at the dealership I was the only one to select the Orrefors Lancelot bowl.  It is a magnificent and beautiful design by Erika Lagerbielke; over the years I've amassed a large collection of Orrefors…

Are You a Collector or a Hoarder? How YouTube Videos Turned My Guilt Into Happiness

  I've always been a collector but began seriously collecting when I was in my 30's.  I am now 67 and have amassed a variety of collectibles.  When I was very young my parents would not let me own a knife; when I became an adult I truly enjoyed being able to buy any type of knife that I wished.  I now own a collection of antique knife-tool sets, mostly German and some American, a comprehensive collection of vintage Imperial and Colonial American knives and a small…

eBay Feedback Score Modification -- Help for Sellers with Negative Feedback

  I'd been on eBay for at least 9 years, had only one negative feedback from a buyer about a year ago; it took  me a full year to have my score move from 97 up to 98.9.  A member's eBay feedback score is supposed to be calculated based on the prior 12 month period, however 12 months had passed and the one negative feedback was still affecting my score.  I assumed that the one negative would automatically be deleted after a year however it remained in place.  I called eBay customer support…
