Brian Bittner's Slinging Antiques for a Living

Brian Bittner's Slinging Antiques for a Living
 
May 05, 2010 -  Brian Bittner    
 

During the past few weeks I have been focused on my business of dealing antiques. This is a family learned trade that my grandfather started in the late 60's. My father is now a full time antique dealer, as is my brother and myself. We sell many of our things on ebay (from early Stanley Planes to 1900 Baseball Photos to Miner's Lanterns and beyond). We also setup at shows during the spring through fall seasons.

 

The shows really hit full force a couple weeks ago and, for me have been filled with long drives, early mornings. The largest show we do, Brimfield is next week, afterwhich I will be able to relax for a while (as in train hard before I drive out west).

My girlfriend Jenny and I will be heading out west for a few weeks in July for a stop in Humboldt and then to Boulder before heading back East. I have been trying to keep my fitness up through this busy time and climb as much as possible when I am home. The weather has prevented us from sending a new project, but when its done it should rival for the best, and hardest in Vermont. More later!
