I am 71 and he is 68, Bob has been in the antiques business 34 years and is sharing his knowledge with me. He has his own site now, visit bearclaw1412 selling hardware and salvage furniture parts.
I sell things for other elderly people who need money & to clean out the clutter or just pare down for the move to a smaller place.They sell them because they are afraid their treasures will get trashed or end up in thrift stores & yard sales. I try to get them better money than they would get anywhere else.
We get some of our items from auctions & estate sales & for a while they are mine & I get to enjoy them. I had nothing passed down to me. I never knew any of my family. Everything I owned fit in a box on the back seat of the car. When I hold these old things I wish they could talk, they seem to want a second chance to be needed & useful again like me and that is why I named my store The Life of Things.
