Tell us about your interest in antiques, collecting and any antique related websites, blogs, businesses.
I have a antique and collectables booth at the local antique mall, called Mill Creek Antique Mall. I love the hunt, at thrift stores and yard sales.

Thanks Shirley, I feel in love with Carnival Glass the moment I saw my first piece, didn't have a clue what it was just knew I liked it. That piece was a plate, Fenton's Peacock and Urn. It was in a box with tons of other stuff. I was going through boxes of old 'stuff' a friend had inherited. Last Christmas he sent me that plate! I have about 85 pieces now. Guess it's time to take a few new pictures. :-)!!
Hey Shirley! Wow, great collections!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I myself am having to move in theopposite direction, getting rid of some things and downsizing because I am going to be building a small Tumbleweed home. But the idea is to furnish the home with functional antiques. So, I am looking for free standing enamel farmhouse sink, and a very small apartment size hoosier, so keep an eye out for me, okay? Robin
Its a blast collecting but even more fun sharing my finds with others. I have a rather slap-dash system but everybody gets a turn being displayed for at least a month. I have groupings on the dining room table-I commandeered half of a bookcase so there's 5 shelves there, plus I bought a chrome-look rack for the kitchen at Costco that has 4 shelves and I can get two displays on each shelf. I'm just about tapped out as far as patterns are concerned but you never know when a new one will appear. I have Inarco Mood Indigo and Orange Spice which are fairly easy to come by but the cool plum is harder to find. I,too, love the deep color. Thank you so much for commenting on my photos.
Thanks for the help. I want to be able to put an item on my recent activity section with it's info so possible buyers have a quick look at the top of the page. I just tried to change the tag on my photo program to see if it will tag the activity photo with it's info instead of a computer tag description. Hope it works.
We have a mortgage of $1027.00 a month but so much room to have fun with. I like the mall type setting it allows you time to shop, which we have little time to do. We are open Thursdays thru Sunday and that gives us some time to create and repair.
