By Michele Alice

$1,325 for a shot glass? It's possible, especially if it's pre-Prohibition.

Before the passage of the Constitution's 18th Amendment (the "Volstead Act") which banned in the United States "the manufacture, sale,…

Vintage home decor forever timeless

Although style trends change from year to year , antiques to vintage have survived the test of time. Family heirlooms are still cherished for the treasures they are. The fact that a family has passed an item down from generation to generation has always been a tradition and one that never fails to touch my heart. The collector is still actively collecting even in this slow ecomony , only not as actively as before. But, you can view the auction sites and see that collectors are holding onto… Continue

Favorite Vintage Jewelry Doesn't Have To Match...

Sometimes the best vintage costume jewelry is not the most expensive, or a set, for that matter. It's the pieces we luv, and that catch our imagination! One of the eras that captures my imagination is the 'Roaring '20's'!

Two of these pieces may be from the 1920's, as they sure look old enough to be from a 'flapper'...the brass / bakelite bangle, and the long green beaded necklace. The green / blue beaded earrings, I am guessing to be from the 1940's, but this 'set' of three that I have put… Continue

Bits and pieces of my collective life................

gettin' the "junkin" fever

I guess I must have been about ten years old when I first spied a hodge-podge of interesting stuff in the window of a secondhand store in my hometown of Sharpsburg, KY.

This was the first secondhand store I had ever seen and something deep inside my soul told I must go in and look around.

It was that very day that I discovered why my daddy loved to go "junkin" and I realized I had inherited the same passion for treasure…

What are you looking for?

When I meet collectors of antique china as either a new or potential customer, they are eager to tell me what china pattern they collect or want to collect. But within that conversation is a second question -- what pieces are you looking for?



Many flow blue collectors have been collecting for years but are still searching for the elusive piece: the last four punch cups, a lid for a sugar bowl, a creamer, an under tray or under plate for a serving piece. Because the dinner, supper,… Continue

The Benefits of Owning a Jewelers Loupe...

I had put off buying a jewelers loupe for quite sometime, but finally I did go to a gold and gem shop that sold them. I found the loupes to be very inexpensive; mine was only $18.00 + tax.

Since then I have used it constantly at estate sales, collectible malls, and rechecking my own collection of vintage costume jewelry. The print on top of the jewelers loupe is wearing off...I have used it so often! I'm pretty sure it was 10x magnification. The shopkeeper had said that was the strongest I… Continue

INTRODUCTION TO THE WINDSOR CHAIR By Fred Taylor "The Furniture Detective"

INTRODUCTION TO THE WINDSOR CHAIR By Fred Taylor



One type of chair that everyone is familiar with is the ever present Windsor chair. But why are there so many of them and what is the basis for America's love affair with that type chair?



The word "Windsor" is usually capitalized in deference to the supposed point of origin of this style chair, the area around the town of Windsor, England, in the early 18th century. However,… Continue
