Antiques-enough said really! I mainly collect costume jewelry but have been swaying towards different outlets lately. I also collect engravings, lithographs, etchingAntiques-enough said really! I mainly collect costume jewelry but have been swaying towards different outlets lately. I also collect engravings, lithographs, etchings, old letters, Victorian wood dresser boxes-really anything Victorian in nature. Love love love Art Nouveau. I wish I had more friends that were interested in antiques. I'm way ahead of my time apparently, or they just don't appreciate the old stuff. Well that's about all! Happy antiquing! If you would like to get in touch about any of the items I post here you can e-mail me at nicholemarie07@hotmail.com. My EBay seller profile: Koliemarie07 (Read more)
