Hello all. For about a year of more I've been thinking of ways to distance myself from Ebay's ever increasing fees, mandates, and indifference toward their Sellers. I have all but stopped putting anythying of significance on Ebay, whereas, in the past, anything I had that was quality in nature would be listed on Ebay without hesitation. These days I have been using the network of contacts, mostly secured from past Ebays sales, to move some of my nicer inventory to former Customers I've gotten… Continue

I was looking around on ebay yesterday for some Elvis Presley items to buy as a gift for my mother's birthday. Her birthday is exactly three weeks from now, so I decided to plan ahead. My mother absolutely adores Elvis because she grew up listening to his music and was around when his career was at his peak. When I went on ebay to look around, I found an old twenty-nine cent Elvis stamp from somewhere around the sixties. Not only was it a stamp, it also came with a free Elvis clock, all for… Continue

I have been making shadowboxes since forever! Here are just two that I've done over the years. I really like to use the old wooden printers trays, they make the best ones. I currently have fifteen on my walls, and I am making one right now that is all animals. Next I'm going super hero's, which should be fun.

My love affair with historic furniture started seven years ago while I was a deck hand on a schooner in New Port Road Island. My job involved polishing the furniture inside the sail boat and I was impressed by the level of care I was trained to take when cleaning the peices.
Never before have I felt such a sense of pride about an object and I realized that there is more to this than just furniture. I started browsing the internet about my new found interest and happened upon the… Continue

In this world of antiques and collectibles we do a lot of looking, buying and selling, exchanging, researching, and talking about it. But, what if we invited others to "experience" it? Last month, I decided to open up the 1950's guest cottage, located on our little ranch in Northwest Colorado, to anyone who would like to experience vintage living. I don't have it completely decorated yet, so there are not so many photos of vintage interior but what I do have is some comfortable living space in… Continue

Antique furniture can add elegance to any decor, and is a wonderful investment for any collector. I found myself getting into antique furniture collecting after watching a few of my previous collections start to lose value. I have always been on the look out for any potential collecting while also providing me a return on my investments, and I found that antique furniture is a great way to do so. The furniture pieces can help tie any room together, is a conversation piece, and is also a piece… Continue

My Daughter has a clear glass canister set and on top of the lid it has 'Hermetic" and the bottom "MADE IN ITALY" on it . On the back "TOSCANA 1861". I think the front side has a figure of a chicken with three little chicks, and a barn. One side has a hillside with a building, trees and a small duck in a pond with a larger one behind it. The other side has a figure of a barn or shed building, trees, a flower and one chicken like figure. Does anyone know anything about these?
