I am a member of the Glass & China Collectors of Bakersfield. I collect many types of glass. My favorites are glass & ceramic basket, L E Smith Bittersweet & Lilac. I also love Viking and old enamel ware items.
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.
No prob's. I've been called far worse! lol I have been trying to add a profile picture, but every attempt doesn't work. No matter what photo I use, they are all refused... I purchased the lamp base from Australia, several years ago.

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
