If you like the 1930s you can't go past the beautiful items that were created by Clarice Cliff.  There are some stunning pieces which for that time were advanced and today Clarice Cliff has become very collectable and still in demand some 80 or more years later.

6 board blanket chest

Should have, Could have… But didn’t

A few hours to go before I hit the sack and I picked up my favorite book to read, Killer Stuff and Tons of Money.  Very interesting read on doing flea markets and the antiquing…

“I guess it is pretty crazy,” Sierra said, echoing an observation shared by some of his friends.

Or maybe not. Sierra, like ­other book lovers, has read articles about slowing e-book…
