"Collecting" Kitchen Collectibles On

Addicted To

It's time for me to confide with my followers, I'm addicted to Pinterest.com I have discovered so many new websites, blogs, businesses, ideas, tips etc. There is nothing like the power of the image to hook you in. It's taken me awhile, but I think I now have the hang of these virtual pinning boards.

Meeting Kitchen Collectible Collectors On

I'm getting to "meet" a lot of other obsessed Retro and vintage collectors and  am having a lot of fun sharing  pictures of vintage kitsch and kitchen collectibles with like minded friends. is a great social media tool for antique dealers. In my case, I concentrate on kitchen  and home collectibles and decor and have themed my board accordingly. Additionally, I am sharing a sneak preview of my boards on my blog sending traffic back and forth.

Truthfully, I am having more fun on than going antiquing. I get to "collect" in cyberspace without the cost, fuss and time that driving around junking entails. I'm becoming real fond of my "collections" and am getting the same buzz after spotting something on that I used to get when out antiquing.

I'm addicted!
