Why Collect Antiques -- Why NOT?!!

The Antique Trader has my 'Letter to the Editor' up online, and it will run in the print edition, too. I wrote about the fun of finding my ancestor's image on an antique cigar box label.

The letter is basically an excerpt from my recent GREEN HEIRS blog post, that I sent in in reponse to their request for "Do you collect family related items?" stories.

I am glad they are running my little story. I hope it'll spur a little interest in:

Oh, heck -- any reason to collect antiques is fine with me!

And if you haven't yet, be sure to sign up for the Antique Trader's wonderful FREE e-newsletters -- lots of articles about antiques, along with show and auction info -- a wonderful collectors resource! Read the latest A.T. e-newsletter here.
