I have collected antiques for years, particularly flow blue. I now have a shop on Etsy where I sell midcentury art pottery and glass, as well as antique porcelain, jewelry, and other vintage bits and bobs. I specialize in Scandinavian and Italian glass and ceramics and West German pottery.
I live in Chadds Ford, PA, with my husband and a senior Basset Hound.
Website: Optional if you have antique, collectibles, art or related website.
Tell us about your interest in antiques, collecting and any antique related websites, blogs, businesses.
I studied Art History at the University of Delaware and worked in the library at Winterthur Museum in Delaware for a time. In the 1990's I sold 19th and early 20th century paintings, primarily at antiques shows on the east coast, but no longer have the business. I am currently employed by a local auction house and an antiques mall.

Would you be interested in moderating or co moderating a group forum in the area of collecting you specialize in?

Mary, thank you for the friend connect here! I can't believe that we weren't linked as friends here, when we are everywhere else, but I'm a 'vintage' person, so I forget things! LOL 'Glad that is rectified! Take care, Diane :O)
Thanks for the friend connect Mary,I admire anyone that gets inolved in animal rescue.I lost my Basset Elmo 1 1/2 yrs ago and everyday I still think of him.He was such a character and always up to mischief,not always welcome mischief but I had to love him because there was never a dull moment.Love your items!
Also, glad to add you as a friend. I'm learning about this website...and hope I don't make errors while manuvering :o) around. My husband's sister (if I haven't told you before) lives outside Reading, PA. And my husband's cousin lives in Oxford. Small world! I place a picture of my pups and myself on my site. Happy hunting for treasures! D. Marie

Seeing you hankies, prompted me to tell you about my lastes find.
Last Fri, I took my office trash to the dumpster, someone had dumped a sack of clothes in there. Naturally I picked through it...I came away with 4 scarves. My co-workers really teased me about it, but I found 4 treasures!
