A lot has certainly changed since I first built this website 20+ years ago! The Federal Trade Commission now requires website onwers to disclose their affiliate links or possibly be fined. While the main purpose of rebuilding this website is to promote my antique picking business. I do hope to monetize this website. There is a lot of expense connected with picking antiques in the Midwestern US. Then hauling my antique pickings to Franklin, NC where I have antique booths at Bryant's Antique Mall. Gas prices are high and motels prices have increased. Plus there can be unexpected truck repairs and towing expense along the way. So every dollar from affiliate commission will help! However at this time I have no ads or affiliate links on this website. If this changes in the future I will update this page.
