  Age does not seem to be celebrated in this country. Which is odd because we covet old things, just not people.  Vintage is hip, as is antique or distressed furniture.  We like our wines and our cheeses aged.  Old buildings and classic cars are held in the highest esteem....

In September we talked about Boomers buying and selling their youth. Let’s take it a step further … what’s in your closet, garage or attic that you can reminisce over for a few minutes … and then let it go? I ask because I’ve had to do that recently.

Photo: Old glove from keymancollectibles.com.  The one I bought looks much like this one.  This one is in better shape, but mine's older.  Yeah, yeah, condition is everything, I know. Sorry I've been gone for the past many days.  I was really ill, and my PC is under plastic...

My recent test blog worked, so let me explain it a little further.  I have opened an Etsy store today to showcase some of my other artistic work and sell some hand made items...
