About Me

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Reason Number 5: Commerce

Okay, let’s get this one out of the way right now… I mean, you wouldn’t really take me seriously if I didn’t give you a buying opportunity, would you?  My business, Artifactually Yours, is a combination of bunches of antiques and vintage items for sale, digging up fun facts about…

Five Reasons…

In the previous blog post, I tried to describe how we got here, or at least to the place where we reached out over the internet to create a space for folks to share what they know and what they want to know about the world of vintage and antiques. The…

Hello.

WE’RE GOING ON A TRIP, AND WE’RE TAKING AN ANTIQUE, A BARBIE (vintage of course), AND A COLLECTIBLE… (now it’s your turn) Unlike most of the global population, I had never really visited the blogosphere.  Sometimes a colleague at work would try to shuttle me forward, but I didn’t stay…
