I have collected buttons from the age of about 4 and that started my collecting bug. I find antiques in charity shops and car boots and sell them at Dukes in Dorchester. I am great friends with Andrew Marlborough and Timothy Medhusrt who work there. I love going on the hunt for antiques I get a great buzz, like finding treasure. I am especially keen on vintage jewelry and I sell vintage brooches on etsy. I love the art noveau period and I love anything with opals in it. I am also a keen entomologists so any collectables with insects involved is my idea of heaven. I am 23 and I work for an outdoor clothing company but I would love to work in antiques and collectables in the future.
