Over the years I have accumulated quite a pile of random and miscellaneous objects through garage/estate sales or dumpster rescues, but now i'm trying to make a determined effort to learn about their history. Antique bottles, vintage dolls and toys and art glass have a special place in my heart. I don't know a lot about anything, that's why most of my posts appear in Unsolved Mystery section, but i love learning and discovering, so the clues and info I get on this site are very valuable to me in this process, and i thank everyone for their help and shared knowledge.
