American Antiques

I'm a sucker for old things, and old American things just flat out make my day. On a daily basis I find myself prefacing many of my sentences with the same six words. "When I'm rich I'm going to...". This could be when talking about any number of things. From the philanthropic and totally practical, "when I'm rich I'm going to hire someone who's sole job is to remind which side of the street to park on for street sweeping", to the ridiculous, "when I'm rich I'm going to start a foundation to help starving children in war-torn countries". Wait, are those switched?

After checking this website out, once again, I find myself uttering those same familiar words. "When I'm rich I'm going to buy Jeff Bridgman and make him collect amazing American antiques for me."
