What Is It You Collect?

We Are Wired For It

November 7, 2018

So I have a thing about 1950s' decor. If you indulge me on the subject of Atomic Ceramic or Abstract lamps, expect to spend extra time speaking or listenning to me! Making friends with fellow collectors has been interesting to say the least. Sadly, there is not enough room in my condo to have a large collection. If there was, online shopping sites like Ebay, Chairish, and 1stDibs would be bookmarked.  

Do you too collect some thing? Perhaps Colored Glass, Art, Barbie Dolls, Teacups, Coins or well the sky is the limit, isn't it?! According to author James L. Halperin, (ha.com) there are common reasons that we collect. For me Gaining Knowledge & Relaxing keep me in the game.  Below are a few of my Lamp pairs that fit the retro era that turn on my happy face.
