SPOTLIGHT ON MEMBER KYLE CLARK

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…

SPOTLIGHT ON MEMBER ANNIE THOMPSON OF NEW YORK

SPOTLIGHT ON MEMBER ANNIE THOMPSON OF NEW YORK 
 Growing Up On Long Island
I grew up in Smithtown, New York which is out on Long Island. In 1976, when the rest of the country was celebrating it’s Bi-centennial, our town was already 10 years past the Tri-centennial mark.  In typical, New York fashion, the entire town was whooping it up for a three day bash that rendered the volunteer fire department passed out in various stages of undress and most of the citizens…

SPOTLIGHT ON MEMBER BRUCE HAYDEN

SPOTLIGHT ON MEMBER BRUCE HAYDEN

In his own words:

My name is Bruce Hayden and I currently live in Virginia 

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…

My Pet Peeves in Auction Listings

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…

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.…

How to Choose A Estate Sale Company

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…
