I've loved antiques since an early age. My first piece I remember buying was an old purse. The kind that had a clear vinyl outer covering, beaded a little underneath with a metal chain handle. I have no idea what happened to it. I think I paid a quarter at a local fleamarket while shopping with my parents. During the same trip a dealer gave me a little antique mouse toy that moved by either pulling a wind up string or by pulling it around. I was hooked.
Over the years I collected a few more little treasures.
I love old stuff because it stands the test of time.
It says "I've lasted this long and I'm worth enjoying for a little while longer."
It is hard to describe but gosh I just can't help myself. Antiques hold all kinds of mysteries and I just enjoy finding them, selling them, and showing them off!
Why do you enjoy antiques? I'd love to hear about it.
