Fred Taylor: The Furniture Hunter
Fred Taylor’s career in furniture, furniture restoration, antiques and collectibles began when he and his wife, Gail, moved from a one-bedroom apartment to their first home in 1973 – a 2,000-square-foot house in Tampa, Florida. “We didn’t own a stick except a couple of bean bag chairs,” Taylor said.

Traveling Free with Antiques And Collectibles
I traveled to Baltimore yesterday so my wife, Vickie, could attend a business conference, and Joshua and I could visit with my other son, Lawson. In past years, I went out to look for treasures as she participated in the scheduled events and classes. This year started out different, however.
