Started collecting when we rented a house/shop . The owner said unless we opened as a business we would have to go! We had no cash and 3 youngsters so my south African friend,who was a Black woman,had plenty of experience re. antiques as she had been engaged as a home help in a rich white family,during the bad days there. She dragged me off to various auction houses and very soon we had a shop well stocked and don't I wish I had that stock today, as that was many years ago: Poole Pottery ,Denby pottery,Troika pottery, Walt Disney Autographs,Clarice Cliff,Vinyl records,guitars,pin badges,football progs .Olde post-cards,Olde photos,Amber,antique fountain pens!Radiator grilles off olde mercedes motors,persian rugs/carpets. My first persian rug I bought for £10 it was covered in white gloss paint which eventually wore off with the claws from my dogs,years later much worse condition I put it in Sotherbys sale-room and it brought £1,000
Anyone got a large house to rent ?
