Auctions spark Olympic Museum manager’s passion for history

Auctions spark Olympic Museum manager’s passion for history | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Like many museum professionals, Lake Placid Olympic Museum director Alison Haas fell in love with the U.S. version of the "Antiques Roadshow" television program when it first aired on PBS in 1997.

A 1996 graduate of the Potsdam High School, Haas was studying art history at the time at St. Lawrence University in Canton.

"On Saturday mornings, I would wake up while all my other friends were sleeping in, and I would go to auctions," Haas said. "And I became obsessed with objects."

Vintage German Christmas Tree Candle Clips

Vintage German Christmas Tree Candle Clips | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Before electricity made its way into most homes, Christmas trees had the warm glow of candlelight. The candles were attached to the tree branches via little metal clips. Most often they were decorative clips made in Germany, like these shown here.  Since using candles to light your tree is neither practical, nor safe, we don’t recommend bringing back that tradition lightly. (No pun intended!) But that doesn’t mean you can’t safely use these charming bits of Christmas past this holiday.

Some ways to use these beautiful pieces.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

OK, so you waited around, hoping just the right thing was going to pop up at eBay or some other site, and now, as the shipping delivery window narrows, you’re starting to worry that all you can do is go with the obvious eBay gift card or get something lame. Gift certificates, from eBay, your local antique mall or online dealer, aren’t bad ideas. But here are a few other options you might wish to consider…

On the Trail for Antiques w/ Pick & Grin | Inherited Values

On the Trail for Antiques w/ Pick & Grin | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The summer selling season was over. This year seemed consumed with flea and antique markets, plus we conducted more estate sales for clients than any other summer. We felt the need to relax.


Pick: How about a week in Florida, it’s warm and beaches are empty.  Our choice is always to go in early fall. It proves to be a great time to go, when summer travelers are back home, children return to school and the arrival of Snow Birds is still a month or more away.


Grin: And the great seafood restaurants will not be crowded. Plus we could drive and shop along the way.


Pick: Do we ever go anywhere without stopping & antique shopping?
