Rusk Auto Houses

Rusk Auto Houses | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
I see a headline from the Fargo Forum: “Pushing Tin: Fargo History Found In Early Garages“. Of course, I know exactly what they’re talking about — one of my favorite things is the Rusk Auto House, a product of the Fargo Cornice and Ornament Co, designed to solve the problem, “the automobile has just been invented, now where do we keep it?”

Seth Dixon's curator insight, June 9, 2014 8:43 PM

Technological advancements in photography were massively influential in creating an environmental preservation movement.  These are just as captivation now as they were 150 years ago.

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?

Antiques as Souvenirs

Antiques as Souvenirs | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Tourists have collected travel kitsch since the Crusaders plundered their way through the Holy Land.  Postcards, pennants, shot glasses, spoons, as well as,  a plethora of other items have topped the list of must haves from exotic and pastoral locales. These items are readily available at estate sales as they lose their meaning once their purchaser has passed. I have a different take on souvenir purchases; I try to find an antique or vintage piece that I can use and enjoy in my home decor.
