Got a gimmick? Need more than that, must be a bargain to sell

The holiday season heralded new shopping trends that were once only seen at Antique Shows and Flea Markets.

The new deal is , what is the best deal.

Retailers offering huge discounts with free shipping and free shipping returns has caused vintage sellers to tighten the cinch on their budgets one more notch.

Retailers buy in bulk, and are able to pad…

The DC Big Flea Best of Show results

My assistant photographer Colleen Young, attended the event with me so we could both tally the points of the booths we attended.

The lines to attend this show was huge, so, I do believe the DC Big Flea event can prove that the market for antiques to vintage is still as strong as ever.

I did happen upon a negative costume jewelry dealer whose name should…

My Affair with the " Like " Button

Years ago while out antiquing for treasures, I

It was an antique transferware mush cup. The image was

an man's face smiling insanely, with the words around the rim of the cup, " I

like it, I like a lot "
I can remember thinking to myself, yep, that's me, I

like it, in fact I do like a…

Antique doll room box old time antique dealers and the Antique Pickers show

Through the years I have been very fortunate to know many antique dealers.

Before the show , Pickers , was created , and before the Internet , antique dealers were actually pickers for their customers.

He was very knowledgeable of fine antiques , not the usual. His booth was…

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

The country life remembered

Once in a while I will happen upon something in a shop or at auction and when I see it, memories of my childhood appear as though a movie is being played in my head.

The old wood rolling pin brings a scene of my Mother rolling out pie dough for the pies she baked for an Inn that was popular and well known far from it's location. People from the D.C. area would visit the mountains where I lived and when here, they would eat at The Greystone Inn , which…

As time goes on , the era of heirlooms obsolete ?

Times are changing.
The computer, iphone, and whatever else everyone is carrying around these days has changed our society.
I am not talking doomsday like an old timer, I actually feel as though my computer is part of me, and I would not want to be without it.
Although I have embraced the computer age , I have also…
