Q: IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY, WHAT ANTIQUE OR COLLECTIBLE WOULD YOU BUY IMMEDIATELY?

A: If I won the lottery I might look for an interesting piece of Black Forest furniture. I have always liked the intricate carvings on the furniture and decorative pieces, but it is pricey!

Q: WHAT IS THE MOST GORGEOUS ANTIQUE YOU EVER SAW, IN A PRIVATE COLLECTION, OR EVEN A MUSEUM?

A: I saw a beautiful carved prayer bench at Scott’s in Atlanta and I am always looking to find one that is comparable to that one.

Q: WHAT ANTIQUE TREND DO YOU LOVE RIGHT NOW?

A: The antique trend that I like right now is the vintage look and using architectural pieces to decorate with and to re-purpose.

Q: ARE ANTIQUES A GOOD INVESTMENT? WHY OR WHY NOT?

A: I think antiques are a good investment because they last and are timeless. Over the years the new pieces I have purchased don’t have the character and patina that the antiques do. Also, I love the heritage that comes from pieces being passed down generations.

Q: HAVE YOU EVER RECYCLED OR "UPCYCLED" AN ANTIQUE/VINTAGE ITEM?

A: I love recycling, repainting and repurposing just about anything. One of my favorite pieces that I repurposed was a flour bin that I bought at Gas Lamp. I turned it into my gift wrapping and ribbon organizer. Works great!
