Do you want to be a TV star?

Marcia received this email and flyer, and she wants to recommend some of you!  Let the TV show or Marcia know if you are interested! 


"Hello Marcia,
My name is Max Goldcamp and I'm a casting assistant for the award-winning casting agency, MysticArt Pictures. I'm emailing you in regards to a show we're casting called "Finders Keepers." It's like an "American Pickers" or "Pawn Stars" type show, but focused on the world of mantiquing. 

We're looking for a team of guys who love picking and flipping all kinds of manly antiques and I came across your website and was hoping you might be able to give me the names of a few stores I could reach out to and hopefully guide through our casting process. I've attached our flyer so you could see the  idea our producers had for the show.

Thank you so much for your time and hope to hear from you soon!"

Up-cycle/Recycle/Re-purpose!
  
This section of the newsletter will focus on new uses for old things!  If you have found a unique new use for an old item, let us know at Kristin@AntiqueTrail.com.
  
Laundry rooms can end up being pretty dismal places in our home.  One way to brighten them up is to use some fun antiques and collectibles!  I use an antique bread box that I bought in England to store my dog food and an antique cookie jar for dog treats.  I also use tins that I have collected in France, Spain, England and Scotland to brighten up the room.
