I am 74 & he is 70, we met 6 years ago on EHarmony, we both lost spouses of 30+ years and didn't like being alone. Bob has been in the antiques business 37 years & is sharing his knowledge with me. He has his own eBay site now, visit bearclaw1412 where he is selling mostly tools, hardware & salvage furniture parts.
I sell things for other elderly people who need money & to clean out the clutter or just pare down for the move to a smaller place.They sell them because they are afraid their treasures will get trashed or end up in thrift stores & yard sales. I try to get them better money than they would get anywhere else.
We get some of our items from auctions & estate sales & for a while they are mine & I get to enjoy them. I had nothing left to me from family. Everything I owned fit on the back seat of a car. When I hold these old things I wish they could talk, they seem to want a second chance to be needed & useful again like I did & that is why I named my store The Life of Things.
