Have loved old gems all my life since Mom and Dad took me to farm sales in Iowa. I love the hunt, research and sharing info - yes, as well as owning these cool old items. I remember where most things came from and how much I paid -mostly -I'm getting old. Everything has been collected here and there across America in dusty shops, garage sales and nice antique stores. Altho I'd like to have it all I enjoy what I can buy on my meager budget. I hope you enjoy my goodies and their stories.
