For the longest time this picture was going to be the one I used for my book cover. I always loved it because it sums up the antique market buying experience. This is what you expect to see when you go for a day of antiquing. Vintage mannequins, unusual clocks, odd jewelry and furniture you image taking home and re-painting. In then end though it didn't make the cover, so the only way it will get some exposure is by posting it here. It came in second place as my cover pick. Perhaps next time I can use it to illustrate a chapter.
