So I do have a hobby and it’s not art

Many people hold a regular job and create art or craft as their hobby. I am quite the opposite in choosing art as my career and conversely, research both vintage and antique items to sell online as my hobby. Well over a year ago I secretly opened a second shop, OLDisNEW. I sell books, paper, trinkets, collectibles and oddities from years gone by.

I’ve learned that a 1940’s Gillete Rocket Razor has much more value than WWII meat ration tokens as a collector’s item but that the reverse is true when it’s sold as an art supply.

And to quote the OLDisNEW shop announcement:

My family has lived in Eastern Canada for six generations. We have a lot of old things. I hope you find something you like and enjoy it as much as we have!.

Weekly, I’ll be featuring an item from the vintage shop here on the blog to break things up from the routine of posting art.

And soon I’ll be posting garden updates (my second hobby) as Spring continues to progress nicely along in this part of the world… Oh bring it on Baby!
