Size Matters
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Size Matters We talk often as an industry about what many consider to be the first rule of collecting: buy the best you can afford. Reduced, however, that means collecting two or three great objects per year rather than 25 “just good” objects. In theory, it makes sense, but ... (Read More)

A Fundamental Question
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Is there anything more exhausting than a small child who wants to know the why of everything? And to answer is just a trap! We all know that nothing good comes of answering “Why?” because it’s just followed by another one. It is unending. Kid questions are unending ... (Read More)

The Art of Being Irrational
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector We all like to think we are rational human beings, that we have it together and see the world as it is. After all, the world is a safer place if we are able to predict our own reactions and choices, and all the more so if we ... (Read More)

Ode to Joy
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Winter, for many people, is binge weather. There’s no yardwork to be done on Saturday, nowhere to go when it is snowy and dark, so it is the perfect time to settle in and watch enough hours of television that Netflix becomes concerned and asks if you are ... (Read More)

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector We talk a lot in the antiques business about the dollars and cents of things, but for many of us and for much of our work, it is often much more emotional work than financial. It is, bluntly, hard, challenging, sometimes even saddening work. Much of our effort ... (Read More)

A Measure of Gratitude
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Last month we made our annual trek to Wilmington, Delaware. We hadn’t hauled the kids halfway across the country in a couple of months and thought they might be losing their edge if we waited much longer, so we decided to go there and back in three days. ... (Read More)

Imagine That
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector In his editorial last month, Clayton Pennington asked the question, and we paraphrase: is Americans’ ignorance regarding our own basic history undermining the antiques marketplace (and possibly Western civilization as well)? This sparked a disagreement at our house (thanks, boss), because Andrew feels fairly strongly that history has ... (Read More)

Wherever You Go
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector When we lived in the schoolhouse, it was maddening to lose something. By the end of our time there, the four of us were packed in like sardines, but there were only two small, atypical closets and there was no basement, so when something vanished, it was infuriating. ...

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

The Young Collector Back in 2013, we wrote a column about social media and the power it has to build communities and audiences (“Just Be Yourself,” September 2013). That column was prompted by the success of Chief David Oliver in Brimfield, Ohio. Oliver, a small-town police chief, became an overnight sensation ... (Read More)
