The Antiques And Collectibles Market – Investing During A Recession

As we muddle through the first half of the year 2009, I have never seen anything like this. Never have I witnessed the fear and panic in investor’s eyes like I have in the past few months. I was thinking of spearheading a new organization–maybe calling it something like the Battered Investors Club or BIA, an acronym for Broke Investors Of America. The stock market has become nothing more than a roulette table, and retirement accounts such as 401K plans have separated the hard worker from half to almost all of the savings they have responsibly set aside for their retirement.

Do you believe in the politicians and financial “gurus” that assure us that the hundreds of billions of “stimulus” dollars that are being printed 24/7 and thrown around like confetti are going to fix this financial disaster that we are in? I don’t–I think it is going to get worse. Sure, you are going to see the stock market, real estate market, etc., rally for a little bit. The amount of money (read: our taxes, children’s , great grandchildren’s) that the government is handing out is bound to cause a blip on the screen for a short term, but then–lookout! The long term result of all this may remind one of something that happened in Rome’s history.

“SoWa” stands for “South of Washington (Street)” – a part of the South End once called “home” by an assortment of large mills and factories producing pianos, canned goods, shoes, and other items. By the 1950s, most of these businesses had moved out and artists moved in, carving studios, living space, and finally shops and galleries out of the mellow brick buildings. Many members from this flourishing arts community exhibit their creations at SoWa, which also features the work of other artisans throughout New England.

Every Sunday, a sea of white tents transforms the large parking lot on Harrison Ave in SoWa where the market takes place. Over 140 artisans and 50 antiques and collectibles vendors exhibit every week. Vendors and artisans change weekly, so you never know what you’re going to find. And when you find something that you love, you should buy it immediately since you never know if the artisan will be back the next week. (I learned this lesson the hard way.).

So what treasures will you find? Look for gorgeous one-of-a-kind handcrafted jewelry, stylish pocketbooks, lustrous hand-crafted furniture, plus many stunning sets of dishes and other pottery and ceramic pieces. One of my favorites is a local designer of greeting cards who uses a real hand-operated letterpress to print the beautiful designs. Another favorite is a tiny Boston company that silkscreens designs of local graphic artists by hand onto silky cotton t-shirts – I think of them as wearable art.

One of the best parts of this market is being able to talk directly to the artisan who made the product that you’re buying. If you want something slightly different, or perhaps additional pieces for gifts, you can usually make arrangements.

At the Antiques market, look for sets of delicate antique china, mid-century furniture, Art Deco objects, and vintage clothing. You’ll also find paintings, plus antique and collectible books.

A favorite corner of SoWa Open Market is the area where local farmers and artisan bakeries display their bounty. Juicy summer fruits and berries glisten like jewels. As the summer goes on, incredible heirloom tomatoes and fresh-picked corn begin to appear. You’ll also find mouth-watering local cheeses such as chevre and smoked mozzarella. Buy a nice selection of these irresistible goodies, and you won’t have to wonder what to have for dinner.

As investors, we all have taken some very hard hits over the past year. But it does not have to continue. You can stop the bleeding today in your investment situation. Place your money in tangible collectible investments and go back to sleeping at night.

Children’s Christmas Pajamas – Christmas Tradition

Each family develops its own unique holiday traditions. Christmas is the one season with some traditions passed on from generation to generation while others are born out of a desire to do something new and meaningful to their family unit. Family traditions make happy Christmas memories for young and old. For many people, the food associated with the event is just as important a memory as the event itself for instance pizza to snack on while trimming the tree.

Tip 1 – Don’t be overwhelmed by those complex animatronics props you see in professional haunted houses. Some day you may want to build those, but for now, start small. The first thing you might want to do is observe some animatronics in action. A great way to do this is to keep your eyes open whenever you go to the grocery store, hardware store, or craft store. Watch for any moving displays. If you stay alert, you will often see rotating signs advertising in-store specials. They’re usually cardboard signs attached to a motor that is powered by a couple of small batteries. Look inside of them. Go around back and see how they are assembled. A goldmine for checking out moving objects is any store that sets up holiday displays. Study those displays and you will learn a lot. You will see that most of them operate with very simple motors and levers.  

Tip 2 – Learn about simple levers. You will be amazed at how easy and fun it is to make objects move with basic levers. They are one of the most important ingredients in almost all animatronics and mechatronics.  

Tip 3 – Read about animatronics. Your local library and the internet are great resources. Search for terms like animatronics, mechatronics, and robots.  

Tip 4 – Go online or to your local hobby store and purchase basic hobby kits that contain gears, motors, and other animatronics. Not only will you learn a lot, but you will have tremendous fun

Family – Here’s How Meal Planning Can Help You

Meal Planning is a wonderful thing in households that are busy and needs fast and quick meals on the table for dinner. For the ones, who do not know what meal planning is, I will tell you. It is planning your meals by writing down what your family likes and will eat, making a grocery list, going to the grocery store once per week, and finally preparing the meals ahead of time. This is simple to incorporate into your household, you just have to change your mind set into preparing a weeks’ worth of family meals ahead of time.

Of all the factors that came to bear in my situation–fairly considered now the healthy light of day has broken through six years on–it was the work/life disparity that proved the biggest stumbling block, both for direct and indirect reasons (among other indirect reasons) splintering the marriage without much real hope of recovery. I think marriages and relationships have to deal with a fair number of extraneous factors in any event; we have to be able to safely predict what they can and can’t take.

I recall having many discussions about choices for chasing the big money with other family men; if I can’t believe it for my own life then I can’t believe it will work for others’ lives either. I’m against it. It’s a foreign concept to me–an out-of-balanced approach to life where, inevitably it seems, work wins and family loses.

We have to ask whether it’s really worth it–chasing that alluring pot of gold at the end of rainbow–a rainbow I might add that seems more and more out of reach the closer we think we should be getting to it. I think when we enter this world we slowly get greedier–certainly more ambitious. We fall in love with the thought of becoming “self-sufficient.”

Yet, we make our choices in life because, poignantly, we cannot have it all ways. If we think we can have the perfect nuclear family complete with lovely home and white picket fence–and we do so by putting those critically close relationships on hold for two or three years (or even one)–then I think we’re grossly deluded. There’s a vast amount of compensation required to bring family up to that point of focus; the one lost to time away at work.

And it’s not simply about being away from home in a physical sense. Guys particularly fall for this one; when we’re home we’re expected to engage with the family through interaction, help, support and a range of other things that prove we’ve got our hearts sown into the fabric of the family.

I suppose a discussion on these issues is not complete without mentioning the word “balance.” A vast number of us struggle for balance every day. It’s not a foreign concept to anyone I suspect.

And it’s this sense of imbalance that we entertain and mull over, and negotiate with, as we strive to get ahead.

We always have to ask ourselves though, ‘What price could I inevitably be paying for allowing this imbalance in the first place?’ It could be the most important decision of our lives

Ways To Get Over The Perfect Man – Baby Boomer Dating

You’d think by now I’d know “there are NO perfect men,” but, my friend, I’m still falling for those same old lines too. The only difference between BACK THEN and NOW is, I’ve learned the PERFECT ways to get over the Perfect Man. So, baby boomers, if you’re drooling in your beer and wishing you had the PERFECT cure, keep reading.

One of the best ways to meet the challenge of retirement planning is to get an entirely automated online home business model, that does not nick all of your spare time, and has the company doing all the leg work for you.

Depending on the pension plan from your former employer, salting away any additional revenue in a federally insured private savings account is a great investment strategy for retirement planning. But for the Baby Boomer generation, however the plan has changed and earning additional revenue has to be included in the retirement planning for many.

Countrywide, according to the most recent information, private savings have dropped from about ten percent of disposable revenue in 1980 to -1% in 2006 and lately it is getting even worse. Put simply, families spend more cash than they make.

Having a home based online business is one of the finest methods to make extra income and use the various tax savings available. Unfortunately, many of us have to attempt to make up for lost time in savings because most of the Baby Boomers have only a tiny portion of savings that would be required for a comfortable living. This strategy is becoming an integral part of retirement planning and will serve to secure financial comfort in your golden years.

Read Cinderella. Now, there’s a perfect man – he was probably drawn by a woman. Understand that fairy-tale romance is just that and there’s probably NO other explanation for it, it’s a fairy-tale, doesn’t happen in real life.
