Have an antique shop or vintage collection you would like us to check out?
“O BLISS OF THE COLLECTOR, BLISS OF THE MAN OF LEISURE! OF NO ONE HAS LESS BEEN EXPECTED AND NO ONE HAS HAD A GREATER SENSE OF WELL-BEING THAN…A COLLECTOR. OWNERSHIP IS THE MOST INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP ONE CAN HAVE TO OBJECTS. NOT THAT THEY COME ALIVE IN HIM; IT IS HE WHO COMES ALIVE IN THEM.” – Walter Benjamin
With the notion that human beings have engaged in the passionate practice of “collecting” for ages, we introduce you to today’s collectors as we set out to explore the reasons why they collect.
During our travels, we inevitably encounter unique antique shops and collections that we wish we could share with the world. You never know when we’ll pop in! And when we do, we’ll want to know all about you, your collection, and would love for you to show us around town. We’ll take neat photographs of all your favorite stuff and, if you’re not camera-shy, we’ll sit down with you for an on-camera interview so that our readers and viewers can get to know you. See ya’ soon!
