A blog to support the mother/daughter team of Babs and Bec and their vintage hobby shop on Etsy. Babs will discuss mid-century modern, her private collection, vintage items, her original art work and their REMIX items in the shop.
Sometimes one collects what is beautiful, drawn to it like a moth to a flame. Sometimes one collects because of value as a future investment. Sometimes these lines blur and a beautiful collection turns into a valuable investment. Here is an example of a mid-century modern and vintage glass collection. If you look carefully you will see Murano glass from Italy, Fenton glass, a vintage bowl of marbles and one Murano glass ash tray signed by Alfred Barbini. Barbini was the premier Murano glass blower in the 1950's. He made thick heavy objects of art such as ash trays and vases.
