All though I collect a variety of many items I really like art glass vases, bowls, pottery, vintage jewelry, vanity items, and anything that may fall into the Olden days.I shop thrift stores, antique malls, etc. I am fairly new at collecting and have a large variety of items that I dont know the makers, values, etc. I hope to post many of my items soon in hopes that this great group can help me identify and perhaps estimate values. I am excited I found this site and feel this will be very helpfull site for me.
Tell us about your interest in antiques, collecting and any antique related websites, blogs, businesses.
I currently have two booths in a small east Texas town about 80 miles from Dallas. (My mom lives there) i sell 50 to 60 dollars a month but feel i could do much better if I knew more about my pieces. The shop is mixed with a variety of things that I have purchased and all seem to sell eventually. Everyone tells me I have a great eye for the "finer" pieces and so far have not, to my knowledge purchased anything that I could not resale for a profit. My short term goal at this time is to get a web site up and running to sell my things. Hoping to find a mentor to assist me with this. look forward to working with everyone and becoming a more knowledgeble collector in the long run.
