A Welcome from the Editor
I recently asked Country Living Homes Editor Jennifer Kopf (see pg. 3) to share her favorite antiquing town. Her answer: “Any town I’m in.” And isn’t that the truth? The joy of this quirky passion is that the promise of discovery—of finding that next one-of-a-kind, delightinducing thing—is not hundreds of miles away, but rather, just around the bend and, usually, in the places you least expect it. That’s what lures us off, say, U.S. Highway 412 (see below) in the name of unearthing those items just sitting on shelves, waiting for you to discover them. While every issue of Country Living features a fair share of antique finds, this one has true treasure troves, including the antiques-packed loft of Mike Wolfe (pg. 46), the casually collected home of Hadley Wiggins-Marin (pg. 54), and the coastal-but-notkitschy escape of Matt Albiani and Ron Brand (pg. 70). Thanks to the latter, I’m officially adding ships in a bottle to my CL Fair shopping list. (Speaking of, see pg. 23 if you want to join us as a vendor.) Happy hunting!
