A Dealer would have been happy …

August 22, 2015

When some piece sells a dealer would be happy.

When this fantastic tribal weaving (stole) sold, I felt pangs of separation anxiety. When the buyer wrote to say that he had received it and was pleased with it, it made me envy him for possessing it. It is a piece I shall never forget.

My post retirement career plan (about 10 years from now)  is to become a dealer – out of sheer necessity – as my kids will probably be troubled rather than pleased to be inheriting caravan loads of old textiles! So to save them the grief, I intend to sell them all in a decade or so after years of enjoying them. Seems like the sensible thing to do!

But I doubt I can handle the pain of letting these beautiful things go! Until I can I will refrain from calling myself a dealer!
