am I here ? If you have found me at FLEAFISH.COM you are likely
wondering who is this ?, What is this ? and, Why is this website here ?
am I ? My name is Spencer Gorman. I have been a collector since I can remember.
From my Philadelphia roots wandering through the Antique shops on Pine
street with my grandfather, to antique shops, antique malls, auctions,
yard sales, house sales, estate sales, and flea markets, I am always
fishing for those bargains and unique objects that stimulate my sense
of wonder. Who made this? How did they make it? Why did they make it?
Now the ultimate question. WHAT IS IT WORTH? After
more than 40 years of observing objects, accumulating "stuff"and
buying, buying, buying, I have found that I am always broke, always
selling off one thing to acquire another and always involved in what I
call PROJECTS. I thought what a nice place a website could be to SHARE
my projects with others.
Value is more than monetary value, value is emotional response. How do objects make us feel?
