I didn't plan to be a dealer of antiques but when I got carried away at a farm sale many years ago and spent most of my college grant in one go, there was no going back! I love country antiques fortheir honesty as evidence of past lives. Old paint, signs of wear and initials all create clues to age and use. Back then, I was lucky enough to see items at source when farm sales were bountiful.
