Wherever You Go
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector When we lived in the schoolhouse, it was maddening to lose something.

Antiques Confidential
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Is there anyone more obnoxious than a person whose eyes have just been opened? There are no more ardent evangelists than the newly converted. No one is going to nag you about that lingering smoking habit more than the person who stood next to you and smoked for ... (Read More)

Social Skills
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

New World, New Problems
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

It's a Wonderful Life
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector During some recent travels, we stayed with dear friends with two little children, each almost exactly three years younger than one of our children. So, of course, their lives are still full of the overwhelmingly large feelings that lead to tears on the battlefields of early childhood—meals and ... (Read More)

Tall Clocks and Tide Pools: A New England Anniversary Adventure
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector If you’re going to tell a joke, you need to make it funny. Otherwise, you run the risk of no one realizing that you were kidding. Andrew came home this summer from a consultation with a client and said he had a challenging problem: how to get a ... (Read More)

A Privileged Life
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector We like the new place, it turns out. First of all, most houses built in the 1970s were built by people who had lived in houses from the 1920s, so you don’t even have to get out of your chair to find an outlet. There’s none of this ... (Read More)

Homeward Bound
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Have you ever seen one of those old submarine movies where the cook is rummaging under bunks for potatoes?
