In our business, you get to know the people you are buying from, even if they have passed. You get to go into their personal space and see their collections, their passions, and on occasion, their secrets.
Recently MIL and I went to a house in Phoenix where the woman who passed must have LOVED love. Or kissing anyhow. Every room in her home had kissing decor, collectibles, and books. We picked up a few items there, a painting of two little girls kissing, a pewter kissing figuring, and an unintentional purchase of this German Stein, for sale in our Etsy shop.
We got many other great pieces too, but after seeing her home, I sure hope that she was able to love someone the way she loved all the kissing items.
