*I dont re-sell; I re-tell*
In 2009 I was spending a lot of time surfing the 'net reading the text of bloggers and wondering how they did it. As a New Year's resolution I decided to start my own blog and pick up some social media skills.
It wasn't hard to come up with a topic; I've been visiting estate, garage, tag sales my whole life. As long as I can remember I have alway enjoyed the thrill of a unique discovery. Who doesn't?
I have never embraced re-selling my discoveries. I find greater satisfaction in finding the story behind the object and looking for its significance and then re-telling.
Having had a career managing community projects allowed me to connect with groups and organizations that value local history and culture. It has also helped to support my passion for weekend journeys and the search for good stories.
I now work with estate sale companies as well as home owners to uncover and document events and notable accomplishments before they are tossed or sold. This is my best source for live performance content.
My goal is to keep on searching... to find forgotten history, lost items and unsung heroes, to preserve, share and educate.
This is Urban Archeology.
