Growing up in Vermont I always loved old stuff, from wandering in the woods collecting bottles to attending farm auctions. Old stuff led me to study of Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Vermont. I worked as a field archaeologist for the University of Vermont, University of Maine and as a Volunteer in the US Peace Corps in Belize. After my digging days, I returned to Central America and imported traditional handicrafts and opened my first store selling ethnographic art and antiques. I have worked as a presenter and moderator on USAID funded symposiums on importing hand crafted items from international artisans and marketing them in the US. Over the years I expanded into liquidating estates and several projects with movie prop buyers got me into industrial antiques.
After over 20 years in Southern New England, I finally convinced my wife to move to the mountains of East Tennessee. (Reminds me of where I grew up in Vermont but without all the snow!) On our 30 acre farm in Vonore! I want to help you downsize or antique collection or liquidate your estate.
