Not for Sale

 [One of Coleen Rider's favorite finds: 1940s hand-tinted photograph of Diamond Head in Hawaii published in TradHome, July 2011.]

Earlier this year I had a lot of fun quizzing dealer/designer Coleen Rider about her favorite possessions. People who sell antiques and vintage things are usually known for living with a revolving door -- constantly parting with certain objects while bringing in new treasures too. So I wondered what she's held onto the longest. TradHome recently published Coleen's responses to my questions. Click here to see the unexpected room that holds her treasures and learn about the piece that jump-started Coleen's passion for Greek Key. Thanks TradHome for the terrific assignment!

What a fun topic! I have always wondered how dealers can bear to part with their finds. . .
