Really its Ken and Sue. Why "AntiqueClimax"? We needed an eBay handle and its the only pun Ken could think of that had not been used.
We have fun antique shopping and its sort of climactic when we find something, but somehow anticlimactic too, because a lot of the fun is in the hunt. We have seen more countryside than we probably would have, had we not taken up collecting, and more often than not we come up empty-handed.
Sue collects mainly Shorter and Son Pottery and Ken mainly fruit jars. . We often buy something just because we like it - sort of impulsive. We maintain this web page to contribute to our hobby and try to sell some of the extra's.
We like buying and selling on eBay.
We live and work in Canada's capital - Ottawa, Ontario.
Here's an article courtesy of our good friend Scott Wallace of Carleton Place about an early Ottawa businessman Edmond Miles and two rare bottles.
Who would have thought that having been sold as snake oil would be a good selling point! Click here to see another interesting Ottawa bottle.
