My name is Marc Johnson

I have been buying, selling and collecting antiques and collectables since  1980.  I enjoy the artistry, quality and craftsmanship of the handmade period items.  I can visualize the time and the thought that went into making each and every item..  I look at the pieces and wish each item could talk about its travels and what it has seen and where it started it’s life. My favorites are the Victorian and Art Nuevo periods, but I find a appreciation in many periods based on the style and craftsmanship that went into the item.
I have been in the construction trades most all of my life except for a few years that I worked as a butcher both commercially and retail. I worked as a Energy Specialist for the State of Arizona’s Park Service and as a Facility Director for the local school district trying to make the State of Arizona a better place for our children to grow and be more environmentally responsible.  I hope that things only get better in this diversified economy, but time will tell how well my suggestions will be utilized.
I hope to see a better world for my children and yours.  I truly enjoy the old world craftsmanship and how the items were made with quality as a cornerstone and not profits.  I hope to be able to get you top dollar for your item, while providing me with a few %s to keep doing what I love. I will do my best to show you what your items are worth and I will be more than happy to show you my sources ( in most cases.  I can’t give away all my secrets!!) that I use to come up with the value of your item.
So if your in the market to buy, sell, trade or consign then give us a call and lets see if we can make a deal.   

Thank you and sincerely,

Marc Johnson
