When Another Time Antiques began in 1978, I was at a transition point in my young life.  History always taught the same old story line - politics, wars, industrialization, presidents, more wars on and on.  As a woman I felt a complete detachment!  So in my 20s I ventured into an exploration of woman's history and Another Time was born!  Each tiny segment of the business is like a Pandora's Box into a whole new world of understanding.

Something very profound struck me early on: Everything is of value regardless of price.  Whether it is a cut glass pitcher or a tiny common button - all pieces have their place in history!  The stories can be endless.  It is only our perceptions that place things in any order. No one is any less than the other.

Learning history through object is fascinating.  Learning life through history is priceless!

As you see by my picture - many road journeys are in store for hubby and I at this stage of our life.  As I liquidate ATA, I give great thanks to all who have shared my journey so far.  From the flea markets, to the shows, to the BM stores and the world of online customers and friends - you are all very special to me!
Remember ... we are only the keepers for a little while. 
Cherish it while it is yours.
