It was during these times I found some very interesting jewelry, love tokens, gems....and coins/currency. Now I only do about 3 shows a year and have enjoyed collecting a variety of other things. My mother left me a small collection of Roseville, Weller, McCoy, and Hull pottery. So, I don't really focus on one thing anymore but have gathered items that I find interesting. In other words, just about anything could pop up here. Usually, I'm looking for more information because art glass is becoming an new focus and I know almost nothing about it. (Read more)
