I have been a long time fan of Mary Randolph Carter. Carter as she is known to her friends. A junker for life, a passionate and independent woman, ageless, timeless_you just can't help but love her. And I absolutely LOVE this book!
As she says in the introduction, Why this book? She's been junking for decades, and here she shares the love of it the passion behind it the spirit that takes you far and wide. And, she teaches us the tricks of the trade!"
She explains more of why she does it and why she loves it and yes, besides having amazing chapters of junkers and collectors she admires, she gives the reader information on how, why, where and the best tips and advice on antiquing.
If you love old, if you love antiques, if you love vintage, if you like patina, if like stories and history this book is a must for you. There are stories and tales in these objects, and the hunt is just part of the journey and so much fun. This is a book that makes you feel happy, and WE NEED TO FEEL HAPPY.
Thank you Carter for such a well-written and inspiring book. And thank you son, Carter, for a photographic treasure of amazing people and antiques.
