Antiques in the 21st Century: Much More To Learn

Reading: Harry Rinker's column on Rubylane's blog. They asked him his Fall antiquing plans. I love that he is so devoted to the antiques field, and enjoys it so much.

Having read elsewhere that he has sold the old school that housed many of his collections, it might be expected that he would be planning to slow down. Turns out that is not the case. He is actually quite busy, and planning to be more so.

Harry's in the process of writing his thesis, titled Antiques and Collectibles in the 21st Century: The First Decade, while finishing up getting his Masters of Fine Arts in Professional Writing. That alone is inspiring, I must say. And then his plan is to get out "in the field" to any and all antique events, all over the world.

As he says:

"... I plan to spend another two decades minimum, providing my health holds out, chronicling and analyzing the antiques and collectibles trade. I look forward to spending more time in the field. There is much I still need to learn. ..."

I think Harry sets a great example. I, too, have much more to learn.
