Hi Sarah - welcome to I antique on line. I am Antiques in Bethania, a real person whose name is Bev Hamel. I am a self proclaimed Tchotchkaholic and the commander of the friendly adorable picture perfect pest patrol. It sounds like you have some similar interests to me - hey - a brilliant idea - why not use one of them for your image icon instead of that boring (sorry Dianne) blah - blah - blue image?
I hope to see your image soon because this is a great place and well, if you are a bon-a-fide whatever - stand up (upload an image/icon/ avatar --- and be PROUD!! (okay - so real)> Having an image associated with your posting is so important and really adds to you being legitimate!
Okay - so seriously - I lived outside of Chicago for many moons and still have tons of antique stuff from Rockford.
