    It all started with a set of Czechoslovakian china that was given to me when I was about 8 years old, by one of my grandma's. She's also the reason I love antique mahogany.

    I started a small collection of dragonware when I was about 12.

    I love EAPG, ABC glass, martini sets, and, am on the hunt for a piece of Steuben in the wild. That would be to me, the holy grail!

    I'm retired military.
    The Air Force was gracious enough to send me on an all expenses paid, shopping trip, to Turkey, one summer. I was very good at my job, so many afternoons were spent shopping! Persian rugs, wrought iron pieces....
    They also sent me to an extended family vacation in Korea, where my daughter and I met my mother's family. That was another amazing shopping trip!
    I'm in the process of trying to identify some mystery pieces that I've collected over the years. I hope I'm in the right place!
