The above name is my facebook name, because of all the people with the same name. . . Have always been a collector and somehow it seems to get stronger, reminds me of all the fun times I had. When quite young I seemed to try everything. Strarted out on photo shoots as a model and wanted to be the one taking the photos and soon bought my very first fine camera. Then I became a collector of antiques and read a lot of books on what I loved. Soon enough I was selling books and had several apartments in the cities where my main sales would be about 4-5 times in every season of the year. I find it so hard to sell anything. As times get more expensive, needing room and needing to help my sister makes me sell things now which I only intended to do a little of before. I have learned that the most important thing that you own is what seems to get the most attention at one particular moment... And sometimes that can be your latest find or the new piece you got in the mail, or a book about your collecting field. The best advice one can heed for any type of collecting is go with your gut feel as everyone else's opinion is gone in the space of a minute or inevitably through the passage of time !~Phil.

  24. Are the lamps with any marks. I believe they are from the seventies. The reason I say thay is that they were making similar glass lamps, some with names and dates. Have seen examples marked 1972 and 1...
  25. Beautifully painted !~ I remember a 1979 or 80 Arch Digest cover where they used these for a glass coffee table. Loved the cover at the time, and then I went to Montreal in that year and saw a friend...
  26. This is fantastic, very nice with the surrounding patriotic maple leafs. Looks to be around 1910 when they made so many cards with the maple leaf surrounding the scenes.

  33. Thanks kyratango, my favourite in my storage were always my lamps. I would love to go to the storage unit also further beyond where I had more stuff to enjoy, never seemed to all fit in one home. Need...

  35. Thanks for the comment.
  36. My father dragged one of these type of cabinets home, the cabinet was very beautiful but had to give to landfill last week as cleaning out his home, had to make some drastic decisions, gorgeous cabine...
  37. Beautiful. Wonder if they made glasses to match ?
  38. Was watching my favourite retro show "Mad Med" and saw a couple of these small bags. The black restroom girls said if they get any smaller we'll have to find other jobs. Not room for much tip money or...
