Staying at Home
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector We write this in our first week of Ohio’s mandatory “Stay at home” order. “Stay at home,” Ohio Governor Mike DeWine thinks, and we agree, sounds a good bit less ominous than “Shelter in place,” which conjures visions of 1960s elementary school kids crowding under their desks. We ... (Read More)

Notes from Nashville
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Back in our early days in the auction business, every year in February, and sometimes in October, we would make a trip to Nashville. We see now that we were getting on-the-job logistics training. We would go down with a truck full of deliveries and return with a ... (Read More)

Good or Good Enough
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Normally, sitcoms are light, fluffy palate cleansers or heartwarming relatable family stories. We take refuge in one most nights before bed, sort of as a way to rid ourselves of everything else we’ve heard or read during the day, and we’ve discovered that The Good Place is a ... (Read More)

The Roadshow Effect
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Recently we took the kids to see the final (let’s be honest—latest) installment of Star Wars, and they were talking about how excited they were, and how they could not wait. Andrew pointed out that he had been waiting for this moment for more than 40 years. It ... (Read More)

Another Trip Around the Sun
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector People are fond of telling tired parents, “The days are long, but the years are short.” Time does seem to change after having children, but perhaps not in that way. Unlike most of the things around us or at least in comparison to them, children change rapidly. The ... (Read More)

Under the Influence
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector We are part of an odd generation, a generation that straddles a digital divide. We were ten before our mothers owned microwaves, which happened only a few years before we got our first family computers. Hollie says she often feels our childhood was like The Wizard of Oz, ...

Looking for the Good
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

School has started back at our house, and every year it is an anxiety-ridden process. Like anything that comes with tremendous rewards, homeschooling also comes with tremendous responsibility. And as with anything that comes with tremendous responsibility, there are people who are happy to take your money to alleviate some ... (Read More)

Consolidation
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

September, the time of year for looking back at the summer and all that has been accomplished! Or not accomplished, as the case may be. One bay of the garage is still filled with furniture and totes, the gutters on the workshop still need to be cleaned, and the deck ... (Read More)

Have a Little Faith
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

We spend a lot of time on the road, and there are only so many rounds of the “alphabet game” one can stand—or only so many columns one can hear hashed out (if you asked the kids)—so we have become huge fans of podcasts. Podcasts might seem daunting and newfangled, ... (Read More)

Get On Board
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Part of our impetus for uprooting our lives so completely a couple years ago was the desire to be part of a community. We both grew up in small towns, the kind of place where you saw your teacher at church and the cashier in the grocery store ... (Read More)
