It took a little while for my missus to come round to it all but now she is doing well....she come to auctions with me and looks round all the antiques shops.....she even has a bit of knowledge now on what things are and how to tell fakes.....shes doing well! ...
If only she knew I spent last months rent on a 70 year old moth eaten cap and a couple of rusty bayonets !
Keep two sets of books on your purchases. One for the wife now, and one for later on the death bed !
Haha, that's really a funny thing..
This is a funny topic! I'm single currently but my ex-fiancee loved my collecting. Most of my female friends totally get it too. I have lots of collections Analog Synthesizers, Tin Robots, Records, Tube Radios, Transistor Radios, Vintage Appliances, Vintage Cameras, Taxidermy, Antiques and Early Twentieth Century Modernist Furniture - Even have two Bauhaus designed items!!
Everyone knows I'm a collector and usually give me a heads up when they see something. It's good to have weird friends LOL
[QUOTE=Ty Revelo;68739] Still i hide most of the pieces till i sneak them in.
Ty, there is a skill and an art in sneaking pieces in, can be quite nerve wracking sometimes!
