no real value...

was talking to olivier this saturday
young chappie who used to work in a factory
now he is a sucessful brocanteur/antiquaire
and he told me he'd sold a painting
for 2500.00 euros on friday

chapeau monsieur



he then asked me

linda why don't you buy better stock

by this he meant antique rather than vintage
higher outlay/higher return




he surely looked at me as if i were
a mad english woman out in the midday sun
when i told him i prefered stylish junk
to the real deal antique
big guns firing
all singing
poke in the eye with a sharp stick
serious delights





i wonder
do you agree with him

You can only sell what you like and you are.

Poor baby.

I am no expert in either - but I do have a thing about old photographs and tins - and handwritten postcards!

What gorgeous photos/compositions! I'm a sucker for anything vintage and with a story to tell!
