I am a retired multi-skilled male who enjoys visiting boot and antique fairs looking for unusual items that appeal to me. I am not trying to make a living or a profit. My intention is not to buy and sell.
However, I have a financial limit and only so much space in my home to display things. So at some point I have to make painful decisions and let items go. The up-side to this is that I then have space to fill and some capital to play with. And I do enjoy the hunt looking for new items of treasure.
I also have some friends who might want to display items here, perhaps to ask for help in identifying the artist or to find a new home for that special something.
p.s. It is only the special items that will be displayed here. I have got a vast amount of junk which would easily fill a warehouse.
“The path to antique knowledge is paved with junk”.
It is also worthy of note that even items bought in a Charity Shop or Boot Fair may have entailed travelling 60 or 70 miles (this is a lot in the UK) or being in a cold wet field before the early bird leaves his nest. So don’t expect it at a boot fair price. Also what I paid for an item does not have any reflection on it’s worth - it’s worth what it’s worth - even if I overpaid for it [and that has happened a lot].
I hope you enjoy your visit.
