I do collect . Can't say if my stuff is that great. But I Love it! I've ran this tiny antique shop for a friend for 12 years. The thing is Its 15 miles from my house. It has no plumbing or decent heat/coolness for comfort. We sell things for cheap. Most times what we paid or less. But my friend hasn't made even rent money in years! So times are so tough! I have cookie jars, old kitchen utensils,, Coke items. I have an old Koken Barber Chair! DH calls a Boat anchor. Its heavy! I just buy and have things I like and can afford. Sitting there and helping my friend I took stuff in trade for doing it. Its not a paying job. I'm there 8 hours a week. I Love old linens and embroidered things Etc.. Hankies. Decorations anything that makes my heart sing!! As for haggling with shop owners.! I recall these dealers coming in during our 1/2 Price (loss) Sale. I asked them if I came into their shop if they'd give me a Deal? They said, NO!
