LEARNING FROM DAD
My name is Kyle Clark. I'm what you would call a beginner when it comes to antiques. My interest started about 10 years ago when I was around 13-15 years old. I was introduced to, what I only knew it as at the time, "Depression Glass" by my father. His friend had a fairly large collection of about 50 pieces or so that we displayed in a nice open display cabinet. He had lined it with black lights, and this is where my fascination began. When…Continue

In Their words: our story that started 40 + years ago
How It Started
My wife, Gail, wanted to go back to work when our daughter started kindergarten. I found an ad for a small craft shop that was being sold by the owner. It was close to where we lived and we made a deal and purchased her inventory for $1,000.00 and rented the…Continue

SPOTLIGHT ON MEMBER BRUCE HAYDEN
In his own words:
I started picking when I was about 11 years old with my grandparents. Every Friday night they would pick me up and we would go to a local auction house (it was actually an old debilitated shed) but nonetheless we went. I remember the first time I placed a bid on an item, it was a cheap Chinese made lock blade knife about 3 inches long. I was…Continue

Vintage Touch - My Story
My Interest In Antiques Goes Back To Childhood
I remember being drawn to antiques & older type things even as a child. When visiting my grandma, I was always bringing home some little treasure that she allowed me to have, whether it was an old ledger from days gone by or some other trinket that attracted my attention. There was…

Surfing online auctions for finds can be fun. I do it all the time, seeking things I want, both for resale and for personal use.
Online auctions are to me the virtual Big Flea Market and as in a real flea market one must wade through tons of miscellany to spot the finds.
It's faster and more convenient to do it online of course and yet, there are some things about auction listings that do annoy me.
Perhaps you too?
I shop mostly for silver…Continue

Each one now has her own biographical research binder on shelves at the Campanellis’ farm in western New Jersey. The couple have spent a decade tracing the sewers’ genealogies and identifying the stitched scenery.…Continue

Why all estate companies are not created the same!
First of all I don't want you to get the wrong idea, most companies are very reputable and I always recommend other companies if prospective clients don't retain my services. Then there are companies that are down right dishonest, boastful and outright liars.
One company likes to boast that they have 200 plus sales a year and have an email database of over 15,000 names. I know for a fact they…
