Welcome to our site, James and I like to do things
Flea Market Style.
We come across items that we
clean up, make-over and sale.
It is satisfying, fun and economical to reuse old materials. In our society there has been a stigma attached to "used" stuff. We value "new" above all else, or at least the advertising forces would have us believe that.
Antiques, of course, have acquired their own cachet and their value is hyped, primarily because of rarity.
It's that middle ground of stuff that isn't new and hasn't acquired the status of being "antique" that I would like to focus on here.
