[quote=""MLE""]Hi Diane! What old things do you collect?[/quote]

Oh, lots of things! Art, quirky little objects from flea markets and around here instead of yard sales, they call them stoop sales because they are on the stoops of the brownstone buildings.

My favorite art is a poster from 1938 that has a bunch of mermaids in a circle, it's for a sparkling French beverage.

Thanks for all the additional welcomes, too!
