However, in the past couple of years my tastes have changed and the era they were produced. I now collect lighting, antique and vintage, and if it talks to me I will get it. I also have aquired a taste for boxes; metal, tin, and wood. Lastly, I live for the discovery of a very unique piece, more often that p u ece is neglected and filthy, and usually priced dirt cheap because its current owner doesn"t want to take the time to clean it. Professionally, I work in the Oregon Prison system, for more than 13 years. Antiques are my go to place to escape from an extremely stressful occupation. Thanks for taking the time to read my bio!
