i love old things....antiques are so inspiring and amazing. my husband and i have been collecting and selling antiques and vintage objects for the last year and a half and we are always so touched by everything we find. there is such a feeling of history, emotion and beauty. i grew up surrounded by lovely old things. my mother collected antiques all of her life, so i was able to appreciate and learn about all of these pretty things as i grew up. i am so grateful to her for her love of old things. it taught me to appreciate history and to respect others.
