ABOUT HOME FARM ANTIQUES
Bob and I have been collectors of antiques for over 40 years, and sellers for almost as long. We look for pieces that shine in their design, rarity and quality, and that are in top condition. Our specialties are period jewelry, Americana and folk art, country furnishings and antique textiles, with some period clothing (my personal favorite) thrown in.
Where's the Shopping Cart??
We don't have shopping carts. Each antique is an entity within itself, with its own unique characteristics, history, beauty, flaws (which we consider part of its beauty) and versatility. It's not a piece off the assembly line. We want the chance to "chat" with you individually, giving you the opportunity to ask questions. It also provides a chance to discuss shipping and time frames. In other words, we see the lack of shopping carts as the opening of the door to a pleasantly personal touch.
My latest book is titled MOTHER OF PEARL ANTIQUES AND COLLECTIBLES. It's the culmination of 12 years of building one couple's collection of carved mother of pearl. In addition to tons of pictures, you'll find the history of carved mother of pearl, an explanation of the early trade, a lesson in types of shell and a gallery filled with both precious art objects and functional instruments, vanity pieces and religious pieces. The book is available on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
