Hello! I'm glad that you are taking the tiime to learn more about me. I've been around antiques for years - I'm a lifelong collector - and spent a fair amount of my childhood at the antique auctions my parents went to every weekend. These days, I collect jewelry and beads, certain vintage bottles, vintage glass and pottery, and retro kitchenware. Vintage books and items that are musically related are another passion and are also featured in the store from time to time.
In real time, I'm a musician and an adjunct instructor at a local college. I play fiddle and sing and especially enjoy working with singer/songwriters as they develop and record their new music.
I live in beautiful East Tennessee, about 30 miles from where I was born, and spent about 10 years living in Atlanta - so I guess I'm a true southerner. My family's roots are in Wisconsin, which is like a second home to me. Aside from music and collecting, I enjoy all varieties of handcrafts, reading and camping with friends.
Thanks for visiting and if I can answer any questions for you, please don't hesitate to ask. I can usually respond the same day.
