Unlike predictable chain store shopping the pursuit for elusive, vintage, antique finds requires taste, patience, persistence and great bargaining skills. Thankfully here at Hector's Barn we likenothing better than to scour the country, rummaging through flea markets, antique fairs, vintage sales and auctions in search of previously loved, beautiful finds. So much of the thrill is about not knowing what we may discover on any given day.
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.
