Yeah, I teach people how to run profitable home based antiques and collectibles businesses. I got started by running my own business, buying and selling toy trains, and then I started teaching people how to buy and sell toy trains, moved into the general antiques market, and then when eBay came along I added eBay to the mix, because basically eBay is the elephant in the room.
And I do this mainly with my iWantCollectibles website, which has articles and reviews of other products and things like that. My revenue stream comes from the sales of my products, some coaching and from promoting my peers, and those are the other people that write about similar topics. I consider them peers, not competitors, and in many cases we work together to benefit everyone.

ABOUT fifty years ago, when the subject of English furniture first began to be studied and to be written about, it was divided conveniently into four distinct types. One writer called his books on the subject The Age of Oak, The Age of Walnut, The Age of Mahogany and The Age of Satinwood. It is not really quite as simple as that, for each of the so-called Ages overlaps the others and it is quite impossible to lagt down strict dates as to when any one timber was introduced or when it finally, if ever, went out of favour.
