I'm a new member and wanted to be polite and say hi to the forum.

I live in Connecticut now but was born in upstate New York. I consider myself to be a purveyor of quality and I appreciate objects that the modern world considers passe' such as historical coins, furniture, books and antiques. I value quality over quantity and craftsmanship over mass-production. A few other favorite pastimes of mine include history and restoring old houses.

Does anyone else here live in Connecticut or am I the only Yankee?
