I am a antiques dealer based near the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. Being a professional treasure hunter is awesome. You get the thrill of the hunt and the joy of the discovery. Then there's the puzzle of determining where it came from and what it is worth. And finally finding that person for whom it is perfect. As a profession, it can be pretty ideal - if you ignore the administrivia, the false finds, and craziness going on around you!
At the Tuckahoe Antique Mall
I have two booths - one upstairs, one down - chock full of fabulous finds: 20th century glass, vintage toys, fabulous art prints, chocolate molds, fantastic mirrors, vintage knitting, world's fairiana, children's china, aluminum christmas trees, maps, jewelry, and so much more. And if I don't have it, chances are good some of the other 40 dealers do! Tuckahoe is right on 151, in the midst of wonderful wineries, breweries, and cideries, and just a stone's throw from Wintergreen.
