I guess you could say I’m a collector. At one time, I had hundreds of antique radios from the 1940s and 1950s. (Not to worry. I’ve since given a few up, thanks to my wife’s persistence).
The vintage designs, intricate detail and slight variances in each radio were amazing to me. Really, the same goes for anything “old.” Lamps, radios, dressers — the best part of the old items, whether it’s a family heirloom or a garage sale steal
, are the stories behind the pieces.
