Late 19th-century piano, Paris.
In my eternal quest to find room for a piano, I've opened an Etsy shop. I'm selling most of my collection of white ironstone and many French and English antique and vintage collectibles that I've amassed over ten years in Europe. I have dozens and dozens of items still to list, so check back often to see if anything suits your fancy! It's a chance to buy French antique and vintage items without paying American dealers' trumped-up prices. Mind you, shipping from France isn't exactly cheap, but nothing can be done about that; at least La Poste and Chronopost are reliable (have had only one package go astray).
I've played piano since I was five years old, although a life moving from place to place as a journalist has pretty much denied me the space and opportunity to own a piano. The last time I had one was 1994 in Belmont, California (just outside San Francisco). In 1995 when my boyfriend and I broke up - and I moved to an apartment across San Francisco Bay and up a flight of stairs - I donated the piano to the Salvation Army. Am hoping the next move will include ample space for a piano (and tolerant neighbours).
